“Visiting Prague at least once in a lifetime is almost on every traveler’s bucket list. And the most favourite activity when in Prague is to take a leisurely stroll on Charles Bridge.”
Review by Medhika
Quality of Infrastructure:
Overall Rating – 3/3
Activities at Charles Bridge:
- Cultural Immersion
Places to Shop:
Numerous souvenir shops can be found all over Prague, especially around the Old Town. One has to be careful while buying the famous Bohemian crystal and look for the certification or else one can be fooled easily into buying a fake China made product.
Places to Stay:
A private apartment booked through AirBnb in the city centre if you are staying for a longer period of time.
Places to Eat:
Cute little cafes serving authentic Czech cuisine can be found all over the city. A must try item is the Trdelnik which is a very common dessert item sold at almost every street corner near the main sights.
“Visiting Prague at least once in a lifetime is almost on every traveler’s bucket list. And the most favourite activity when in Prague is to take a leisurely stroll on Charles Bridge.
Whether you are a solo backpacker or travelling with family, whether you seek thrill through adventure sports or enjoy the solitude in a library, Prague is one city that everyone loves unanimously. One of the few cities to emerge out of the Second World War unharmed, its medieval architecture is captivating and alluring.
The Charles Bridge itself, built in the fifteenth century has stood the test of time. For the longest period, this Bridge was the only way of crossing the Vltava river and it has been made a pedestrian only zone only in the recent years.
The 30 baroque statues lining its parapet lend a statuesque aura to the whole atmosphere. Numerous musicians and hawkers take center-stage on the Bridge as soon as it is day and continue to entertain tourists till the sun goes down.
Although one can walk around the Bridge all day and all night, it is only in the very early hours of the morning that a visit is a must, if you want to take a walk all by yourself. Its just you and the swans on the river below. What a great way to start the day!”
