Charles Bridge - Spanning the Vltava river and connecting old Prague with the far bank is this beautiful medieval bridge. It has stood for many hundreds of years since being constructed during the reign of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. Since then it has seen millions of visitors who come for the picturesque river views, making this one of the most popular sights in Prague. Walking across towards Prague Castle, perched high above the city, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped back into the Middle Ages. The largest ancient castle in the world, its imposing walls and stout fortifications have served as the seat of power in the area for centuries.
Completing the medieval feeling of Prague is the Old Town Square, a hive of activity day and night with tourists, diners, locals and market sellers all coming together to form a lively arena of activity surrounded by beautiful gothic buildings. Check out the Astronomical Clock on the wall of the Old City Hall, a marvel of science in its time. Prague has long had a Jewish population which has formed a valuable part of its identity. The Old Jewish Cemetery is the final resting place of some of these Czechs and is an interesting sight all of its own and worth a visit.
