The National Monument at Vitkov was impressive with the massive equestrian statue and the views of the city. The walk was enjoyable up a winding hill that accumulated with gorgeous views and the incredible statue from all angles. It was indeed worth the walk.

The iconic statue stands tall in this gorgeous landscaped place. The monument is of national significance and the place that surrounds it looks amazing, when viewed from the top. We quite enjoyed walking around. Prague truly is a magnificent city.
