Old Town Prague

Javascript is required to view this map.

This place makes Prague one of my favorite cities in Europe. It is so charming and small, bustling with people from all over. The old stone streets and old-style buildings that survived WW2 and which have been recently renovated, are truly charming. Old Town is perfectly central to Charles Bridge and the Jewish Quarter, which are only a few blocks away, in perfect walking distance. There are plenty of old things there, an astronomical clock, two beautiful churches, and even a very high end shopping street lined with large shady trees. The area around Charles Bridge is a notorious party center with tons of bars and danceclubs. I say explore around from 1-5pm, eat from 5-6:30, get ready for party and pregame from 6:30-8, then hit the town until the wee hours of the morning. This truly is a picturesque and party city, it is the perfect combination of a great European city, and it doesn’t hurt that its warm and sunny during the summer months all day. If you are looking for a unique adventure, try pedal boating or rowing out in the river. It is a perfect mid-afternoon activity for meeting other young tourists and having a drink on the scenic river. There are churches and monasteries along with some cute swans about the river area.
