No trip to Prague would be complete without seeing the Prague Castle. Visit the Cathedral of St. Vitus and Treasury, the Basilica of St. George, and the Daliborka Tower on Golden Lane, and watch the Changing of the Guard - but the most romantic atmosphere awaits you in the Prague Castle Gardens (accessible April-October).
Close to Prague Castle you'll find this monastery - The Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov - which was founded in 1143. It's one of the oldest of its kind.
This hill is a symbol of love in Prague. From early spring through autumn, you'll find couples snuggling up on blankets here, and others just reading and relaxing. The perfect place for a hand-in-hand stroll.
Vltava River flows across the city center and divides its various sections — Lesser Town, Old Town, and the others. Take a stroll across one of the many bridges connecting the two sides of the river, or enjoy the parks on the islands.
The famous historical Charles Bridge is always crowded with tourists, artists and vendors, but you simply cannot miss this iconic place. Named after King Charles IV, who had it built, this impressive structure is 621 meters long and nearly 10 meters wide, decorated with 30 baroque statues and statuaries, and protected by 3 bridge towers.
Situated on the slope of Petrin Hill, Vrtba Garden is one of the most gorgeous baroque gardens in Prague, and often used as a venue for beautiful open air weddings due to its unique atmosphere. It's also listed as a Class 1 cultural monument on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Enjoy the city-center peace and quiet you'll find here.
This iconic place in historical Old Town is full of tourists who are there to see the Astronomical Clock, but it is still well worth a visit. During the winter months, explore the numerous stalls, enjoy some mulled wine and admire the Old Town Christmas Tree in the center of the square. You can also visit the Tyn Church (with 2 towers, to the right of the Astronomical clock).
Built in 1902 and gorgeous — that sums up Cafe Louvre. Want to have your coffee as Albert Einstein or Franz Kafka did? That's exactly what you'll get here, plus the atmosphere and the interior are sure to impress you.
In the mood for a classical music concert? Or do you just want to admire some historical architecture and glowing lights at night? This Hall was built between 1905 and 1912, and has been incredibly popular ever since.
Cukrarna Mysak is a traditional patisserie founded in 1904. Take the opportunity to go back in time, and enjoy one of their famous sundaes, cakes or pastries in a unique locale.
