Walk the old town square at nightI spent most of my day in the old town square but it has its own charm during night. When the castle is glowing, Charles bridge is lit and the city turns into a fairyland with everyone enjoying it with their loved ones, friends or just alone with Prague. I took my time to explore the city and saw the sex museum, absinthe stores and many souvenir shops as well. If you’re a shopaholic and have money to spend, this is the place for all the shopping, even though everything is overpriced is tourist locations.
Today we decided to discover the Old Town of Prague. (Though ideally we had planned to cover Bohemian Switzerland National Park , it is a beautiful hike with views of Czech and German land). We visited the astronomical clock tower, the old town hall, st nicholas cathedral (even sat for a musical concert) and the art museum. Basically covered Old town and the New town as well. We walked around the local farmers market and bought souvenirs. Since easter week had ended we got good deals on the hand painted intricate wooden easter eggs (famous in the region). Dont forget to look at the doll shops around the old town square, Czech Republic is famous for their handcrafted dolls. I bought one for 300 koruna in an authentic Czech attire. We walked through Wenceslas square and spent the evening there.We later joined our group of friends for dinner and moved to an AirBnB in the old town area. Day 5- Prague (Temp 6 degrees C)
Old Town SquareThe Old Town Square is one of the most popular squares in Prague with the Wenceslas Square on one side and The Charles Bridge on another. This square is the center to some of the most historic statues and structures in Czech Republic- the Old Town Hall, Jan Hus Memorial, The Church of St. Nicholas and the Astronomical Clock, oldest active astronomical clock in the world.The Astronomical Clock particularly attracts a lot of attention amongst tourists, with its popular hourly displays and the legends that surround it. Towards December, the Old Town Square becomes even more vibrant with the Christmas Markets; it is the biggest and most visited in Czech Republic.
