Here you just need to take some photos and it is here that the guide will tell you a beautiful legend about how the city was founded.
From here our way lies to Prague Loretta – an excellent temple with an amazing story and famous bells, the ringing of which come to listen to tourists from all over the world.
And now, finally, Prague Castle. The huge ancient fortress stands on the hill, in the middle of the city, the spiers of her cathedrals and towers are visible from all over the county – when there was a residence of the Czech kings, and now this is the place where the President of the Republic.

Tour of the old town
Through the whole old Prague from the powder gate to Prague, the royal road passes. From the century to the century, on the day of the coronation of the new king, a solemn tuple move was moved: Guard, courtie, know, the priesthood, by passing a crowded crowd of citizens, accompanied the royal carriage to the Cathedral of St. Vita, where royal regalia is stored. We will also pass in the same way, and make sure that there is little on this road, which has changed over the past 400 years.
Wenceslas Square – fun and noisy, solemn, and sometimes anxious. Always crowded tourists, not falling asleep neither day at night. The new Czech story thundered through the cobblestone boots of the Hitler’s soldiers and the caterpillars of Soviet tanks, passed the thousands of velvet revolution by the demonstrations. Here in 1918 it was decided to form a new independent Czechoslovak state, and here, after 70 years, the Era of Communism ended.

And God forbid, if the clock is stopped, because at the same minute there will be 27 Czech Pan ghosts, decaded here in 1620, to see what is worn out in the kingdom and clean up. Here we will see Charles University, one of the oldest in Europe, the estate theater, where I opened the Opera Mozart for the first time "Don Juan" in the formulation of the author.
And literally in two hundred meters from here there is already a completely different city, another Town Hall and other legends. Josefov is the oldest Jewish ghetto in Europe. And the clock arrows on his town hall move in the opposite direction, as if counting on the time back, returning us in the 17th century, when a terrible monster went on these bridges – created by the sage and alchemist, the Berley to defend the Jewish city from encroachment.
On the embankment at Chekhov Bridge we will sit on the Wheemed and admire the city from the river – Vltava.

Stone staircase leads to Staronian synagogue. Just a few steps down and we are already in the early Middle Ages. Seven hundred years of these walls, rather similar to strengthening than on the walls of the temple, stored faith, and often human life from troubled and little and little ********************* Surroundings.
