20 Photos to Inspire Your Prague Trip

Prague is one of Europe’s great cities.  It’s scenic, charming, a little quirky, & exhibits some of the continent’s most stunning architecture.  But it’s also a really FUN city, filled with beer halls & rooftop bars serving up hearty fare for weary travelers!  A great delight is to sit in a sidewalk cafe by the Vltava River, which runs through the heart of town, & people-watch while enjoying views of Prague Castle ~ the major monument that looms large over the city.  Since photos always tell the story best, let’s take a look at “20 Photos to Inspire Your Prague Trip!”

Sunrise on Prague’s world-famous Charles Bridge.

One of my favorite hotels here is the Four Seasons Prague, which sits right on the river ~ & has both a rooftop restaurant, as well as a sidewalk cafe that gives you a perfect vantage point of the city’s skyline.

20 Photos to Inspire Your Prague Trip

This first round of photos is meant to give you a good overview of Prague.  The Vlatava River cuts the city in half, dividing it into East & West, New Town vs. Old Town.  The older section contains Prague Castle & many of the city’s oldest buildings, while newer restaurants & hotels tend to be on the east side of the river.

Incredible Photos of Prague Castle

You can’t come to Prague & not visit Prague Castle.  It not only dominates the city’s skyline, but it’s a significant part of Czech culture & heritage.  Taking a guided tour of the complex will help you understand its importance that much better.

Prague Castle sits on a hill above the city, & is a fantastic spot to watch the sunset.

Here are some final photos of Prague at some its most beautiful hours: sunset & sunrise.  But I found that, even during the day, the city’s bright orange-tiled roofs (which remind me a bit of Lisbon) & its turquoise-blue cathedral spires still photographed beautifully….

Goodbye, Prague…

After our Prague trip, we hopped on a train & headed south to Vienna ~ then on to Hungary’s beautiful capital of Budapest.  And we fell in love with both cities…which you can read more about below.
