See and Do in Prague

From the graffiti-covered John Lennon wall to a dancing house, from Charles Bridge to a cubic lamppost, Prague is one large open-air museum with a lot of attractions. Climb the 233 steps of the Petrin Observation Tower for a sweeping view of the city. Prague shines and glitters. The Grey communist days are over, the city buzzes with activity.

Enjoy all the highlights of Prague. Wander through the courtyards of Prague Castle. Saunter up and down Charles Bridge. Go back in time at the Old Jewish cemetery. Look up at architectural details and look down at the mosaic inlaid pavements. Join the crowd in front of the Astronomical Clock. Admire or despise the upside down horse dangling from the ceiling in Lucerna Passage and count the babies who seemingly crawl up over the outside of television tower.
