Bridge
“The most famous bridge in Czech Republic with very rich history. Some tourist attractions are located on the bridge during your walking (e. g. picture painting of your face). In the morning is the best time you can visit :) Breathtaking view to Prague´s castle as well.”

Monument / Landmark
“The Astronomical Clock, built in to one side of the Old Town Hall Tower, dates from the 15th century. To fully appreciate the clock's intricate construction, join the crowd in front of the tower to watch the procession of the Twelve Apostles: on the hour, every hour, a small trap door opens and Christ marches out ahead of his disciples, while the skeleton of death tolls the bell to a defiant statue of a Turk. ”

“Built as a mini version of Paris's Eiffel Tower, the Petrin Observation Tower was built in 1891 for the Jubilee Exhibition. The tower is 60m tall, which doesn't seem particularly high until you add in the fact that it sits at the summit of Petrin Hill, which is 318m (1043 feet) high. Climb the 299 steps to reach the top of the tower and the view over Prague is magnificent. ”

Plaza
“Despite Prague’s lively history of invasions, the Old Town Square has remained relatively untouched since the 10th Century. Swarms of tourists crowd the historical streets, packing out the alfresco restaurants everyday. The square itself is the perfect place to admire the wonderful architecture Prague has to offer and if that isn’t your thing then the various street performers, musicians and merchants that line the streets here will certainly keep you entertained.”

Zoo
“Opened in 1931, the superb Prague Zoo is not only one of the top attractions in the city, it also ranks among the world's top 10 zoological parks (based on visitor reviews). In the Troja suburbs just a short distance north of the city center, this 143-acre attraction is an especially fun outing for those traveling with kids. Along with its more than 4,800 animals representing some 700 species - including many considered close to extinction.”

Building
“Dancing House (Tančící dům) is set in a fine location by the Vltava River in Prague. Its design is unique, and especially striking in the city centre because it is a modern building surrounded by historic architecture. Dancing House was constructed between 1992-1996. It has daring, curvy outlines, which led its architects Vlado Milunc and the American Frank Owen Gehry to initially name it the "Fred and Ginger Building", after the legendary dance duo. The top floor of Dancing House is the only part of the building open to the public, and is home to one of the city's leading restaurants.”

American Restaurant
$$
“Welcome to the original American restaurant (or should we say “Diner”), that is located in the centre of Prague near the Old Town Square. Our restaurant is themed with authentic US diner style furniture which is inspired by Chevrolet Bel Air’s armchairs from 1952. Immediately on entrance you will notice the monumental hand-made, 60 piece ceramic columns (mosaic) of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. These artistic masterpieces took 3 months to create. Let’s go back to the 50s! With jukeboxes, images of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, our staff dressed in retro clothes, good food and music. Read more on the next slider.”
