As I grow up and was born in Czech, I had a need to post something about it for you.
For people who are planning a visit to Prague. The central of Europe and the city of hundreds bridges and towers.
I found Prague magnificent and I like coming back here. It is a nice getaway from a busy London.
This city is not big big but its not small. Suprisingly, as I am in London and many people tell me they have been in Czech and they totally love it, they find it beautiful, historical and like a second Paris. I guess there is some truth about it.
Here are some list of tourist attractions and places where I find it beautiful and must see things here.
Necessities while in Prague:
1. Wenceslas Square + National museum
A meeting point, a point of shopping a point of gathering people to go out. I don't know. But for me this is where a center begin. I do usually meet my friends here to go then go somewhere further to city center. I do go eat here often and I do like walking through here. A great square with lots of small cafe, restaurants and shops for people to pop in. To be honest, I have never have a chance to go to a National museum yet. But hopefully I'll manage and will visit. I love the view to Wencesles square either from up (in front of museum) down to infinity (as in picture) or from downwards up to see the statue from the front and the museum and its fountain in the background. I guess this is the number 1 destination for tourists as they are here for a first time:)

Again a beautiful park on a hill, you can either walk it up and admire the nature around and visit some cafe and gallerie though the way or take a cablewau up for a view tower or mirror mase.
7. Vysehrad castle + view
For a nice walk in nature and and the beautiful view on Prague.
8. Vltava river + river cruise
