Prague in 1 day
The capital of the Czech Republic is in no hurry to fight for the first lines of ratings in terms of the number of residents or occupied area among the countries of the European Union. But in terms of the number of guests she receives annually, Prague can beat someone's weekly or even half-year record in 1 day. Its centuries-old history and a huge number of architectural masterpieces attract millions of tourists every year. But what can I say, the Czech capital is so architecturally ideal that it is more difficult to single out individual attractions here than anywhere else. Prague is nice and famous for whole districts and streets.
Bridges over the Vltava
Prague is crossed by the Vltava River, knotted by eighteen bridges, each of which is a true masterpiece. The city's visiting card, the famous Charles Bridge, which is worth seeing in Prague in 1 day, was founded in the 14th century. King Charles IV personally took part in its construction, and the Dalai Lama at the end of the twentieth century noted that only positive energy is concentrated around the stone crossing. The Czechs themselves believe that the Charles Bridge is not just a symbol of their capital, but also the center of the universe..
Chekhov Bridge is no less famous, although it is one of the shortest, but it contains many historical relics. On the sides of its stone pillars are ancient bronze statues, lanterns and openwork handrails give the evening bridge a mysterious shape, and in the daytime trams run briskly along it. By the way, having a ride in such a trailer, you can see all of old Prague in one day and select objects for further walking around the city.
The world's largest castle
This is the title that the modern residence of the Czech president, the Prague Castle, bears. The fortress was founded in the 9th century and today it is a complex of buildings and temples, the most famous of which is the Cathedral of St. Vitus. It is deservedly considered the pearl of European Gothic architecture..
The construction of the cathedral began in the XIV century, all under the same Charles IV. Its construction lasted almost 600 years, the height of the Great Tower of the cathedral exceeds 96 meters, and the main nave stretches for 124 meters. One of the main attractions of the temple is its stained glass windows in the northern part, made by Alphonse Mucha. Fans of the famous artist's work can include in the tour plan «Prague in 1 day» and a visit to his memorial museum located in the southern wing of the Kaunicki Palace.
