Interesting sights in Prague
Let’s start with Charles’ Bridge. This decorated pedestrian bridge dates back to the 14th century. It is named after King Charles the IV who reigned during the period of its construction. Nowadays you can find many tourists crossing the bridge along with street artists and locals selling trinkets. Charles Bridge connects the Old City with the New City.
You can see the Prague Castle can from the Charles’ Bridge in all its glory. The Castle complex dates back to the 9th century. Probably one of the most striking structures within the Castle complex is the Gothic-styled St. Vitus Cathedral. The original structure was erected in 930 AD, but the Gothic cathedral as it currently stands was built in the 1300’s. In the Castle complex, you’ll find many palaces which belonged to noble families along with a great many halls and towers.
The Astronomical Tower is situated right in the center of the old city, on the opposite side of Charles’ Bridge. The oldest part of this mesmerizing clock was installed in 1410. Rumor has it that the reigning king had the clockmaker’s eyes removed so that he would never be able to produce such a clock again, although you won’t find this in any history book. The clock tracks the movement of the sun, the zodiac, the old Czech time scale as well the motion of the moon. There are also animated figurines that move when the clock chimes.
Old Jewish Cemetery
There is a significant Jewish section of the city with a rich heritage. Most notable is the Old Jewish Cemetery that was used from the first half of the 15th century to the late 18th century. There are also many Synagogues in the area as well as a striking sculpture of Franz Kafka commemorating his most famous work – Metamorphosis.
The many ghost tours operating in Prague offer an interesting experience. Storytellers take visitors through the old town and relate fascinating and somewhat spooky stories about the history of Prague.
