Best places to see in Prague
Due to Prague being a political, cultural and economic hub, there are many sites to see within the city. A lot of these attractions survived destructive events during the 20th-century and as a result Prague’s historic centre was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The historic centre consists of a number of architectural sites including Charles Bridge which crossed over the city’s Vltava River and connects Prague’s old town with the new towns. It is named after King Charles IV who started its construction in 1357. The Prague Castle is a stunning complex of architecture dating back to the 9th century. It contains Roman and Gothic influences and it is also the official office of the president of Czech Republic.
Prague’s Old Town has a wonderfully rustic feel to it as you navigate down its cobblestoned streets. Many of Prague’s main attractions are located in its Old Town, including the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Tyn and Prague’s medieval Astronomical Clock, which is a 600-year old clock located by the city hall and it displays the twelve apostles when the clock strikes.
