While studying in France, I had the chance to travel to Prague to meet some friends without knowing anything about the city at all. Once I got there I was really impressed. The architecture is amazing and the history very rich. Even if you’ve never heard of Charles Bridge, Wenceslas Square, and St. Vita Cathedral, you should definitely see them if you get the chance.

The old town square holds a statue of Jan Hus
with Tyn Church in the background.
Overviews of Prague reveal a sea of red rooves nestled in the hills near the Vltava River.
In the middle of the city, right at the head of Wenceslas Square, sits the National Museum and a statue of Wenceslas himself.
Definitely the signature place to visit in Prague, the Astronomical Clock has moving parts and characters on the hour
The Wallenstein Palace and Gardens are lovely to visit in spring
The busy Charles Bridge (Karluv Most) is filled with statues, artists, and lots and lots of tourists

The spires of St. Vitus Cathedral dominate while inside and out are some fabulously intricate designs
