TOP TEN of PRAGUE

1) Malá Strana

Day & Night. It’s the nicest area in the city. Its beauty has been unchanged for centuries. Just imagine removing cars and few modern details and you will jump back in the past.

2) Charles bridge

The Charles bridge is a wonderful and impressive place, but to catch the best of its charm I suggest an evening or night walk.

3) Jewish quarter

The rich collections and the monuments contribute to its uniqueness. It is considered to be the second Jewish Museum in the world after the one in Israel.

4) Panorama from the Strahov Terrace

The best time is evening or night and you will have at a glance the whole city center. To get there take tram 22 to the stop Pohořelec cross the square turn right uphill and you will be in front of the main gate of the Strahov Monastery. Cross the yard and go to iron gate at the far end; a few step away down is the terrace.

5) A night walk of Hradcany district

Lets you feel the atmosphere of the old times.

6) Wladislaw Hall at Prague Castle

This Hall is part of the Old Royal Palace and its an impressive Late Gothic piece of architecture. It is still in use today since President Havel makes his speeches from here.

7) Kampa square

You can find this nice little and intimate square just taking the stairs directly from Charles bridge. This square became famous with the movie Mission Impossible I.

8) Vyšehrad

Vyšehrad is one of the oldest parts of Prague even though almost nothing exists from the old times. It is a nice walk (better in the morning) on the baroque walls with a beautiful view of the city. To get there, take metro C - Red to the stop Vyšehrad, walk past the Congress Center and go straight about 300 meters to the baroque walls.

9) Lucerna Passageway

Passageways are characteristic to Prague and Lucerna is the best example. It was built at the beginning of the 1900s by Havel's grandfather . Don't miss the old style elevators that never stop and the "upside-down horse" – a statue of Wenceslas, but this time from the horse's point of view...

10) View of Prague from Letna

To get there, take tram 12 from Malá Strana, tram 5, 8, 14 from Náměstí Republiky or tram 17 from the Staroměstská Metro station, Green line. Get off at Nábřeží Kapitána Jaroše. From here, take Kostelní street and walk up to the school where you turn left. You can see a wonderful panorama of Prague from Letná and have a closer look at the Metronome
