Prague, the most beautiful city in Europe

I had heard people talking very positively about Prague, but I don't believe anything I haven't seen myself. That's why we travel, isn't it? But, don’t believe me. Go there and see for yourself.


Prague travelogue picture
It’s not for nothing that Prague has nick names like the Golden City, The City Of The Hundred Towers or Rome North Of The Alpes. Situated in the very heart of Europe, Prague is like one big open air museum. Walking through Prague is like walking through history. Everywhere you look a story can be told. I still remember the images of the Russian tanks on the Wenceslas Square. Hardly anywhere in the world you’ll find a city centre that better preserved than Prague’s. In the heart of that centre is the Staromestske Square, where you can stand for an hour and still haven’t seen everything worth while. The beautiful St. Nicalas church, the Old City’s town hall with its famous astronomical clock, the Kinsky Palace, where Franz Kafka went to school and where his father had his shop on the ground floor. Cross the Karluv bridge into Mala Strana, where Hradcany Castle is situated. From there you have the most wonderful view of this breathtaking city. You could say that Prague consists of two parts. On the right side of the river is the old town, Franz Kafka’s Prague, Prague of the jewish community, Czech Pargue. On the left side of the river baroque catholic Prague, the Prague with its palaces of the gentry, Prague with its many monasteries and churches.

Favourite spots:

Staromestske Square is one of the most beautiful squares I’ve seen. Houses, palaces and churches in almost any known building style can be found there. Karluv Bridge, closed for traffic, is like a flee market : people selling trinkets, souvenirs and a live Dixieland band with real wash board player. That is when you go to Prague in the summer. Mala Strana, where the Hradcany Castle is situated is a place from you have a fantastic view over Prague.

What's really great:

What struck me most is the wonderful condition in which the great majority of the buildings in Prague are. It seems like everything has been restored yesterday and that there is no pollution. Also the lack of heavy traffic you have in so many big cities. You can walk through the city without risking your life crossing a street.

Sights:

Staromestske Square; everywhere you look you see something beautiful.

Accommodations:

As I came there by car, I chose to stay outside of Prague, so I don’t have any experience. But as a European capital it has every kind of accommodation big cities offer.

Hangouts:

Reduta Jazz Club in Nove Mesto
Rock Café in Nove Mesto

Restaurants:
1.U Cizku, Karlovo namesti, 34
Nice restaurant, good quality but not cheap.
2.U pavouka (The Spider), Celetna, 17
One of the oldest restaurants in Prague, good quality, but not cheap

Furthermore there is your number of various Indian, Chinese, Italian restaurants.
