Visit Prague in one day

Wenceslas square

Located in the Old Town this square takes a big part among the tourist attractions. Here we talk about very long boulevard surrounded by baroque architecture and different shops. Being that it is Christmas time there are the markets. I am not sure if they are there usually. At the top of the square there is the national symbol of the country, the statue of St Wenceslas. In the old days it was used as a horse market.

Old Town Square

Continue your walk towards the Old Town Sqare,. This one is amazing ant if offers many thing to enjoy. The main attraction is probably the Astronomical Clock. There are many tourists in front of it taking pictures and waiting for the bell. It is a medieval architecture and design, dating from 1410. The moon and the sun are presented and the “The walk of the Apostles”. On the right side of it you will see the church known as “Church of our lady before Tyn”. I simply like the Gothic design it has. It is the main church in this part since the 14th century. Around the square you will see many restaurant and bars, so feel free to treat yourself.

Walk on Karlova

If you are standing in front of the Astronomical Clock, take the road tat leads you to the left. From there starts Karlova Street. The busiest street in the whole Prague, and sometimes it is very hard to even walk. On the sides of the street there are many shops, bars, museums, street artist, interesting buildings and so. follow the crowd and it will lead you to the Charles Bridge.

As I said before, Charles Bridge is a very popular tourist attraction. This bridge dates from the 14th century, and was build under the orders of Charles. This was the first bridge that connects the two banks of Vltava river, and it offered an admiring view of some parts of Prague. Colorful buildings, swans in the river and many boats. Often there are some artist performing, or playing some nice melody. You will see the statues, and have in mind that there are around 30.

Prague Castle

Once you reach Mala Strana, head yourself towards the Castle. The Prague Castle is actually not one castle, but many buildings gathered together. The main one, peaking above the others is Saint Vitus Cathedral. This is a Roman Catholic metropolitan Cathedral, a place where the archbishops find each other. This Gothic building is the biggest most important church in the country. Take a walk around and admire the rest of the castle.

This is a perfect visit Prague in one day tour, since all the main attractions are included. Any other recommendation is welcomed, feel free to leave your comment.
