OLD PRAGUE - CZECH


Prague Old Town is one of the world's most architecturally beautiful old cities on earth. Built between the 11th and 18th centuries on seven hills and intersected by the meandering River Vltava (Moldau), Prague offers a stunning array of architecture. Many magnificent structures, such as Hradcani Castle, St Vitus Cathedral, Charles Bridge and numerous churches and palaces, built mostly in the 14th century under the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV. The centre of the Old Town has always been the Old Town Square dominated by the Church of Our Lady of Tưn and the Town Hall. Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, baroque, and rococo facades combine to create delicate buildings.
