First up is The Charles Bridge.

Joining the Lesser Side with Old Town, the Charles bridge is famously the best spot for viewing the Prague Castle. Thousands of people traverse this cobbled bridge every year.

The Old Town Square is another popular destination.

It is the oldest and most populated square in this historic city. The dominating figure is the Church of Our Lady before Tyn, a massive Gothic structure completed in the 15th century. Visitors can also check out the astronomical clock, the Jan Hus Memorial and the baroque St. Nicholas Church.

"This is one of two must-see spots in Prague," wrote visitor Schel. "The buildings surrounding this plaza are glorious and will make your visit awe inspiring."

Prague Castle (Prague 11908)

Lastly, consider checking out the Prague Castle, which was the original seat of power in Bohemia, the home of Czech royalty. The former royal compound is actually a series of castles, with a cathedral and several gardens and plazas at the center. If you visit during the day, make sure to catch the changing of the guard, which occurs every hour.
