Things to see in Praga
Prague Castle, which houses St Vitus Cathedral and a large collection of historic buildings, is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city.
This small city, one of the most beautiful locations in the Czech Republic, should be high on your list of places to visit on a trip from Prague. You’ll be blown away by its majestic castle.
Prague’s Astronomical Clock, built with the most advanced technology in the fifteenth century, is one of the most visited sights in the Old Town of the Czech capital.
The horrors of Nazism were also suffered by what is now the Czech Republic. Barely 60 kilometres from Prague is the Terezín concentration camp and ghetto.
Charles Bridge is the great emblem of Prague. Unless you get a photo on this bridge, with its remarkable sculptures, you can’t say you’ve been to the Czech capital city.
With its crammed tombstones, the impressive Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague serves as a reminder of the Jews who lived in the city over the course of more than three centuries.
St Vitus Cathedral, the Czech Republic’s most important Gothic place of worship, was the setting for the coronations of the kings of Bohemia.
The Dancing House, a modern building designed by Frank Gehry, is a mesmerising sight on the banks of the River Vltava. Its towers, Fred and Ginger, are partners joined in a dance without end.
Everyone passes, sooner or later, through Old Town Square, the epicentre of life in Prague, flanked by spectacular monuments.
