Before visiting Prague, I had always heard that it looked like a fairytale city. The destination was a real unanimity that had pleased most of my friends who had already traveled over there. My curiosity to visit the capital of Czech Republic was only increasing through time, and after traveling there, I have to say that it still managed to exceed my expectations. The city is a real treasure of Eastern Europe! So, let’s understand why Prague looks like a fairytale …
Prague’s architecture looks like the backdrop of a Brothers Grimms’ tale
Colorful houses in pastel colors are seen everywhere. At the same time, we have towers and bridges in medieval style to complete the landscape. This is undoubtedly the ideal setting for any Brothers Grimm´s tale.
Towers everywhere you look around
The city is full of amazing towers and you can´t walk down the street without paying attention to every detail. That is definitely the perfect scenario for any work of fiction. Around Charles Bridge, things can become even more beautiful!
Carriages through the cobbled streets
The magic of the amazing backdrop of this place is completed by carriages walking up and down through its cobbled streets.
Prague Castle hovering in the landscape
From the lower part of town, we get to see the Prague Castle hovering in the landscape almost everywhere we look around. A walk by the river is the perfect way to enjoy this beautiful sight!
Marionettes shops. Hey, Pinocchio!
The marionettes are very traditional in Czech Republic. You’ll find shops stuffed of them in several places of Prague. Among them, we have both famous personalities of our time as fictional characters.
Swans on the edge of the river
Is there any animal more fairytale-like than swans? In a spot near the river on the way down the Prague Castle, we have many of them walking and swimming around. It’s a wonderful thing that you absolutely can’t miss in Prague!
Orange rooftops that can be seen from Prague Castle
The view from Prague Castle filled of orange rooftops makes the city look like an enchanted village. It´s one of the most amazing views to Prague!
Architecture around the Castle
The elaborate architecture in the castle area is wonderful. Observing its details is a real journey to other times and other reality!
The most incredible Astronomical Clock you´ve ever seen
The Astronomical Clock of Prague is known as Orloj. It´s not only beautiful to look at, but it´s also one of the oldest and most detailed works of this kind ever manufactured in the world. In addition to showing the time, it indicates the moon phases and the movement of the stars. The clock comes alive every hour from 8 am to 20h with the mechanical movement of the procession of the Twelve Apostles and other statuettes that move on the outside of the clock.
