Places to visit in Prague
The Prague Castle.
Certainly, one of the most important landmarks of Prague is the Prague Castle complex which is the largest coherent castle complex in the world, The Prague Castle with area of almost 70 000m2. By our advice and opinion this is must see place in Prague. The St. Vitus Cathedral is located here and it is largest and most important cathedral in Prague. Beside regular religious services offered, coronations of many kings and queens has taken place in the St. Vitus Cathedral. If you decide to walk to the Prague Castle be prepared to take comfortable walking shoes as almost the entire road leading to the Prague Castle is with cobblestones and uphill. Going down from the Prague Castle and heading down to the Old Town Square is certainly an easier road.
The Charles Bridge.
One of the oldest bridges in Europe. Depending on where are you accommodated in Prague might be a better alternative to first visit the Old Town Square before heading to the Prague Castle area. If you will be heading to Prague Castle from the Old Town area then definitely you will be going through the Charles Bridge. The Charles Bridge is a tale on its own. Cobblestones are on the Charles Bridge therefore do not forget to stay in your comfortable walking shoes.
Lesser Town or Little Quarter.
The Lesser Town is a very picturesque area on its own. It is somewhat like the entire place has come out from a fairy-tale. Down and up the hills of the Lesser Town are a lot of shops, churches, palaces to see and a lot of traditional restaurants to try the food at. Most establishments, whether it is a hotel or restaurant, a coffee shop is set in ancient buildings which construct the entire Lesser Town area. In Lesser Town you will find the St. Nicholas Church which is one of the most famous Baroque Churches in Prague. In the Lesser Town is set one of the most interesting graffiti place the John Lennon wall. From Nerudova street you can uphill and reach the Prague Castle.
The Vysehrad Castle.
From some of the many places to see and visit in Prague is definitely the Vysehrad Castle. The Vysehrad Castle is the landmark that is closes to our Hostel in Prague. The distance between our Hostel and Vysehrad Castle is about 10 min by tram or about 20-30 min walk, depending on your mood to walk that day :). It is even closer to than that through the staircase leading up to the Vysehrad metro station in Prague. Though the walk up to the Vysehrad metro station is uphill and steep, therefore taking a tram would be just fine.
According to some ancient legends, the Vysehrad Castle (Fortress) is believed to be the oldest seat of Czech princesses.
Legends hold that Vyšehrad was the area of the very first settlement which later moved to become Prague, however so far this case stays still unverified.
At the point when the Přemyslid dinasty chose the present area of Prague Castle, the two castles maintained an opposing authority for roughly two centuries. The prime of Vysehrad Castle was mainly during the second half of the eleventh century, when Vratislav moved his seat from The Prague Castle to Vysehrad Castle. The prime time of the Castle finished around 1140 when Prince Soběslav moved his seat back to The Prague Castle.
The present outlook of Vysehrad as a castle, with incredible block bulwarks, bastions, and the Tábor and Leopold doors, is a consequence of Baroque renovating. The Cihelná brána (Brick entryway) is an Empire-style structure, dating from 1841. The fundamental piece of the Špička Gate, portions of the Romanesque extension, and the demolished Gothic post tower known as Libušina lázeň (Libuše’s Bath) are the main parts that have been protected from the Middle Ages. The Romanesque rotunda of St. Martin dates from the second half of the eleventh century. The eleventh century Basilica of Sts. Subside and Paul, which overwhelms Vyšehrad, was rebuilt in the second half of the fourteenth century and again in 1885 and 1887 in neo-Gothic style.
Vyšehrad and its surroundings entered the Prague zone area and became an inseparable part of Prague city in 1883.
Around Vysehrad you can find great coffee places and restaurants. In the Castle area there is one of the most famous cemeteries where famous Czech composers, artists, writers, sculptors and partly known personas from the science and politics.
