ASTONISHINGLY BEAUTIFUL CATHEDRAL! While it is a little underwhelming on the outside, the inside is amazing! There are plentiful of alters, statues and plaques decorated around the church. The most i’ve seen so far. One thing is, no photography is allowed but i couldn’t resist...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
