Linking Prague Castle to the Old Town, Charles Bridge offers a thoroughly romantic promenade across the Vltava. The open-air gallery of Baroque statues has been inspiring poets and novelists alike since it was built in 1357. Pick up a souvenir from one of the artists stationed on the bridge’s cobblestones while listening to street musicians perform jazzy renditions of pop songs. And don’t forget to touch the base of the St. John of Nepomuk statue for good luck.
The cream of the crop, the top of the table, the best of the best of the best. These are the very best attractions in Prague. Some will be familiar to you, some less so, but each is more picturesque than modern technology will ever do justice. The Czech capital can be a dizzying place to visit (that might be the amount of beer), with famous nightlife, fantastically curated museums and a restaurant scene that doesn’t get anywhere near enough attention. Prague is one of the most popular destinations in Europe, a place that most people feel compelled to visit at least once in their lives, although return trips become inevitable once this city digs its claws in. The City of a Hundred Spires is waiting to be explored.
