Prague is a really great city once you get to know it. It is full of beautiful squares, beautiful architecture, and beautiful art.

Prague, famous for its spring, subsequent soviet tanks and their photographer Josef Kudelka, st. Charles bridge, saint wenclaus and cheap beer. Well there’s a bit more to the city than that. Prague as a city is able to mix the sightseeing with a good night life.

Most of the must see sights are all located within a fairly compact area of the city. You can easily walk any where once in the city centre. These are just a few at random.

St. Charles bridge – impressive bridge adored with numerous statues mainly of a religious nature with a guard tower a one end. The bridge is now only for foot passenger and seem to be the day resident of artist/photographers selling local landscapes or caricatures.

Old town square – is Prague’s tourist central, but is done very well giving it a market feel. Avoid the restaurants around here unless you want to be on a bread and water diet for the next few days, you probably pay triple prices around here. It also has the moving clock that draws big crowds every hour when it chimes but in all honesty is not all that impressive.
St. Wenclaus square – not so much a square as a wide boulevard, filled with a lot of department stores but not really the designer names per say.

There’s a lot more to do in Prague. I just loved to walk around for a day getting lost and still not getting bored or frustrated cause there always seemed to be something about to keep your attention. Don’t spend all of your time in Old Town square or at Charles Bridge…the surrounding neighborhoods have a lot to offer and have far fewer people.
Also Malastrana is an attraction, but you’ll find historic sites and amazing around every corner in this wonderful city. And you’ll find there one of the best beer in the world!!!

Bars: Akropolis, Orange bar, M1, Roxy (club), Bodeguita del Medio, U Sudu, U Sadu, …
Restaurants: Pivovarsky dum, Legitanes, Amigos, Kolkovna, U Sadu, U basnika panve, …
Places to see: center, Vyšehrad, Petrin, castle, Letenske sady, Vinohrady, …
Overall, like most tourist cities there’s two sides to it, just depends what side you want to experience.
