The view from the Prague Castle was amazing, looking out over the city and then downriver to the hill where the Eiffel Tower replica sits was quite a pleasant surprise! Who knew that was there?

We visited in February and it was freezing! Colder than outside! We took around an hour, working our way round slowly with the guide book and taking photographs. See King Wenceslas tomb and another highly ornamented tomb. Fantastic historic woodcarving, stunning windows and masonry. Well...More

Ok, you have to pay to get in, but is worth it. The interior is sumptous and you have to see it. Especially the Mucha window ! But, you can get in without paying if you only go for the Mucha window (once inside, on...More

When we walked through the outer walls and saw the cathedral up close for the first time, we literally stopped mid-sentence and stood there in awe like morons. This is the most incredible building I've ever laid eyes on, and in my mind the single...More

from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
