If you have a day spare or are visiting the city with your family Prague Zoo is a great alternative to wandering around the streets all day.

Castle built on top of the hill just above the Vltava river gives the stunning view of the city and bridges on the river.Apart from this, there is a huge park, ruins from ancient Prague, a Neo-Gothic church and Cemetery. This was indeed the best place to relax and rejuvenate.As I did not have much time in my hand, I decided to move out quickly after a small stroll in this place.
For the best view of Praha, the park of Letna Hill is one of the best spots to relax and take pictures. Climbing up hill could take a while, but the view is absolutely worth the efforts! It is also where Legendary Pop star Michael Jackson started his HIStory World Tour in the September of 1996!
