Prague, the city of bridges, a melancholic city mixing the modernity of a European city with the romantic nostalgia of the ancient world. There was a time when this city was the jewel of an economic empire that dominated much of Europe, where the Kingdom of Bohemia spread throughout the Czech Republic. Huge European fortunes made this beautiful city the pearl of great price it is today. The architectural legacy of Prague takes us to the mid-twentieth century, suggesting the great majesty it had and reminding us of how futile the glory of a people can be.
One of the great advantages you have when visiting Prague is that it is almost bisected by the mighty river Vltava, which gives it a special charm and a great way to see the city from another point of view. No doubt Prague is the city of bridges.
Though many of these bridges are beautiful because of their age and the landscapes around them, the top one is Charles Bridge. Walking along you can enjoy a wide variety of street performers who will surprise you with hand-painted pictures of the city or local crafts and the more than famous caricatures. While crossing the bridge feel the heady magic of its statues, full of life despite their antiquity. Some of them seem to look at you while you walk through this piece of history of Prague.
Another major attraction is The National Theatre of Prague, not far from Charles Bridge. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy this huge building with classical and Renaissance air.
Being a cultural capital of reference in Central Europe you can enjoy its long musical tradition, with almost daily concerts of classical music at the Rodolfinum Theatre, a real treat for the senses.
In short, few European capitals can offer so much in so little space, it is a magnificent journey this summer, as the weather is great, with pleasant temperatures that invite to see the city calmly. Do not miss the opportunity to see this charming city, Prague, the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia.
