Sunrise at Charles Bridge, Prague

Exploring winter in Prague, Czech Republic

You want to get lost in Prague, the capital of Czech Republic. Explore the maze of its endless alleys of the old town around the bends of River Vlatava/Moldau.

Prague whispers its melancholic memories

As a result, you need to listen to those stories on every corner. Roam around its roads, enter those hidden courtyards, waste time in those bars and restaurants. And while wandering, listening and living, your journey will lead you to the crowded and popular Charles Bridge, the beginning and end of every exploration. Only during sunrise you’ll most likely be alone. Those rare moments are priceless. Here, the entire European Tradition emerges. Beautiful baroque churches. The sound of music and literature. Crowned by one of the most beautiful cathedrals of the continent: St Vitus Cathedral located within the walls of Prague Castle (Pražský hrad).

 

The architecture continues to blow you away. Therefore, open the heavy door of the barque churches such as St Nicholas and the famous Libraries of Strahov Monastery. Continue your journey and appreciate one of the most pittoresque cities of Europe with its breathtaking urban life.

 

But wandering makes little tiger tired.
