You should start your acquaintance with the city from the Old Town Square because this is the place where you can fully immerse into the fairy atmosphere of old city. At this square, enjoy the beauty of gothic buildings and take a look at the Old Town Hall. It is decorated with an astronomical clock – where every hour, when the clock is beating, the apostle figures appear. It is also interesting to take a stroll along the Jewish quarter and see its sights. For example, it has the Old New Synagogue – one of the oldest in Europe. And you should also visit the Charles Bridge from where you can enjoy the most amazing views of the city, especially at night.
