Prague: travel guides or just wandering?
Have you ever been in Prague? I’ve been there for three days and I would like to give you some useful tips, in order to let you discover this amazing city in the best way even if you don’t have travel guides with you.
Prague is a magic city, an incredible mix of past and future, tradition and innovation, esoteric influences and cosmopolite perspectives.
If you like you can just wandering, following the flowing of “Vtlava”, the river cutting the city in two, dividing the Old District of Staré Město from the new one of Nové Mesto.
I started my trip wandering in the city center, from Old Town Square with the amazing gothic Týn Church and the famous Astronomical Clock, to Wenceslas Square and its beautiful shops.
Then I got to see Karl Bridge, a long and beautiful bridge on the river with thirty statues telling the history of the city (if you touch the golden dog near Saint John Nepomucene monument, you’ll be back in Prague at least one time in your life).
If you prefer modern monuments come and see the Dancing House, a odd and wonderful art nouveau building: it’s made by two buildings “hugging” themselves in a sort of dance, as lovers dancing together. Romantic to see with your partner!
An unmissable stop is the Jewish Museum: according to the myth, the Stone Golem was born here, thanks to the magic of Rabbi Loews.
Traditional dishes - restaurants are available on several travel guides (http://www.placesonline.com) - are very tasty, pork is delicious with potatoes and also the famous Prague Ham. Also sweets are good: walking in the streets you’ll be able to taste Trdl, a sweet pastry with almonds and sugar on top, baked on embers.
