What to see in Prague

When we begin to read the Prague guide, we realized that we would have to make a selection of the things that we wanted to visit and which not; as it would be four days, and the city offers many things to see and do. Maybe if you are planning now your trip to the city of a hundred spires, this post can help.

What to see in Prague... according to The Travel Blog

– The Prague castle. Surely you've heard of it and already have it in your list. Has the fame of being the largest castle in the world, but in reality, more than a castle, what you see is a set of monuments with great historical and artistic value. The highlight is the Cathedral of San Vito, that to us left us speechless... although the Royal Palace, the street of Gold, the romanesque Basilica of St. George, the Black Tower or the Powder Tower are not are also not behind in terms of interest. This visit da for a full day, so that in The Travel Blog we will devote a separate post because it deserves it!

– The Old Town square. In it you'll find, among other things, the town Hall with an impressive astronomical clock. Synchronizes your clock to move to a point ahead and view out all the cartoons to give the time. We had to run because we arrived a few minutes late and we nearly lose it...

– The Church of St. Nicholas, which is one of the most notable of the city. Of baroque style, well worth a visit to contemplate only its architecture, but from The Travel Blog we will tell you a secret to travelers that makes it still more deserving the penalty: in the interior of this church there is an organ where he played the same Mozart. Visiting this church was incredible and I couldn't stop to make me pictures with the body. A must for music lovers.

– The Jewish Quarter with its six synagogues and the jewish cemetery. Attentive to the days of the week and the festivities of the religion themselves, because on Saturdays it is not possible to visit any of its sights.

– The Charles Bridge, which crosses the river with more than thirty statues of the most varied adornándolo. One of the bridges are more majestic than we've ever seen! And it is free, so you can visit it as often as you want.

– The Tower Petrin, which can be accessed by cable car. It is a tower very seemed to the Eiffel but of lesser height. You can climb and offers a panoramic, very interesting city. At the top there is a souvenir shop and a small café.

– Fred and Ginger. A building representative of the architecture that is more modern, surrounded by gothic, baroque and other classical styles. In when you see it, you will recognize it, and it is the image of two buildings dancing is beautiful. It is the architecture deconstructivist, that we can see in other works by the same architect (Frank Gehry) and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

In addition to these attractions, Prague offers many others that are probably well worth a visit. We also were in the museum of Bedrich Smetana, which was a Czech composer that I particularly have a passion and we went to see a performance of Black Theatre, a type of art scenic very famous in the city. Surely, depending on your interests, you'll want to add one or two more things to this list of must-haves. The city offers so many things and it is a matter of selecting according to the time that you have. We were very happy and without a doubt, it is a destination to return to.
