It was an extended weekend trip to Prague and Munich. This is considered one of the most beautiful cities of the world brimming with cultural sites.
Our hotel was very close to the town square . This is a historic square. The elegant tower of the Town Hall with the world famous astronomical clock, the proud silhouette of the fairy-tale Týn Cathedral, the monumental Church of St. Nicholas and countless multicolored houses of many styles lend this place a unique atmosphere.
Charles Bridge is a historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. The bridge replaced the old Judith Bridge built 1158–1172 that had been badly damaged by a flood in 1342. This new bridge was originally called Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) or Prague Bridge (Pražský most) but has been “Charles Bridge” since 1870.
Petrin Observation Tower was built in 1891 for the Jubilee Exhibition. The tower is 60m tall, which doesn’t seem particularly high until you add in the fact that it sits at the summit of Petrin Hill, which is 318m (1043 feet) high. After climbing 299 steps to reach the top of the tower and the view over Prague is magnificent; on a clear day it is possible to see the highest peak in the Czech Republic, Snezka, which is 150km away. The Petrin Observation Tower is set in landscaped gardens, which include a sizeable rose garden, and make for a pleasant stroll all year round. This departs from Ujezd street in the Lesser Town (Malá Strana), near Ujezd tram stop.
We took one hour tour in a vintage car and visited Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square, the historic Jewish Quarter, Lesser Town (Malá Strana) and Strahov Monastery, before heading up to Prague Castle.
In the afternoon we visited Palace ground. Finally wrapping the day after a sumptuous dinner at the old town square.
