  1. How I love Prague, and your post took me right back. The Powder Tower is intriguing, and I walked back and forth across the Charles Bridge quite a lot. It was busy, but we were able to avoid the crowds somehow and enjoy the charm of the old city.

  2. When I first visited Prague, we had an okey time and I felt that the city was okay… but lately I have seen some really amazing images and read some great posts on the city, like yours, so I am rethinking my “its a good place, but I would not want to go back, I have seen it”
    I think I would like to see Prague during the summer 🙂

    1. Sometimes, I see when start knowing or loving the city we exit from that city and after that we think whether to go again or not. Check it again and yes in summer it must be very vibrant.

  3. Prague is one of my favorite cities in Europe, it’s always nice to visit. We covered about the same places in four days last time we visited, and I’d love to go back. Your post made me miss it ;). Great guide.

  4. I visited Prague this year for the first time and I was completely amazed by the Astronomical Clock and how it works, pretty mind-blowing. The Old Town Square is such a unique mix of architecture styles. I didn’t manage to see the Funicular Railway or Havel Market so this would be good ideas for next time.

    1. Thanks for reading through and yes Prague has so many things that we miss something or other and it is always left for next trip.

  5. Prague looks beautiful. Your photos are great. Prague has been on my wishlist for so long now, I’m going to start looking for some flight tickets today!

  12. Wow. I’ve been to Prague seven times, and I did not know that the no. 11 line of Tram runs as a Tram Beer Bar! That is the coolest thing ever. I mean, you can drink everywhere, so technically you can make any tram your own personal beer enjoyment facility, but you have to bring it with you. I’m going to have to start using the trams!

  13. I was in Prague in 1998 just when it was starting to become popular as a tourist destination.
