My Euro Travel in Prague, Czech Republic

It's time to visit and see Europe again! I guess, it is favorable to visit again the capital city of Czech Republic. Prague is also its largest city. It has been a political, cultural and economic center of Europe particularly eastern Europe for the over 1,100 years of its existence. It is one of the beautiful cities I had visited in Europe.

Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites which makes it one of Europe's most visited cities. It has also a good economic standing. Here are some images I took during our visit last 2008.

The building with two towers on the background is the Church of Our Lady before Týn or simply called as the Týn Cathedral. It is located on the Old Town Square, between Wenceslas Square and the Charles Bridge.

The Astronomical Clock at the Old Town Hall

Prague's Old Town Square is often bursting at the seams with tourists in the summer. Featuring various architectural styles including the gothic Týn Cathedral and baroque St. Nicholas Church, the square is an oasis for travelers wearied by Prague's narrow streets. Among many churches, tourists may find the Astronomical Clock on this square, while the tower at the Old Town Hall offers a panoramic view of Old Town.

The Vltava River that flows along Prague. It is called in German as Moldau.
