Prague is both the capital and the largest, and at the same time one of the most beautiful cities in the Czech Republic. Prague is the center of international tourism, there are many tourists even from the most distant corners of the world, regardless of the time of year. It is the hometown of many famous personalities, such as the singer Elena Vondrachkova, the writer Franz Kafka and the tennis player Martina Navratilova. Undoubtedly, this is one of the most interesting and valuable places when it comes to tourist attractions around the world. While in this location, you can’t miss these 10 attractions.
So what is worth seeing in Prague?
1. National Museum on Wenceslas Square
It is located in the very center of the city, so it shouldn’t be a problem to find it. The construction of the museum building was completed in 1890, and the total time of its construction was 5 years. Two parts are available to visitors. In the first one, you can admire the rich history of the Czech nation, and in the second, a collection of sculptures and busts of the most important figures for the Czech Republic (this part is called the Pantheon).
2. Grevin or wax museum.
Interestingly, on the same street in Prague, at a distance of less than 200 meters from each other, there are as many as two such establishments.
3. Old Town Square
This is an absolute must see. This is where the Tourist Service Center is located, so it’s a great place to start your adventure in the charming Czech capital.
4. Church of Our Lady before Tyn
Sometimes it is jokingly compared to the famous Dracula’s castle. It is surrounded by numerous historic apartment buildings and two monumental towers just over 80 meters high. It is one of the longest structures in the country, as it took up to 100 years to complete.
5. Charles Bridge
This is perhaps one of the most characteristic elements of Prague, crowded every day, regardless of weather conditions. It is 520 meters long, 10 meters wide and has 16 spans. Initially, it was not the Charles Bridge at all, but was called the Stone Bridge and the Prague Bridge. During the walk, 30 sculptures of biblical and prominent figures of Czech history will appear.
6. Apple Museum Brand
Its creator was a passionate brand that decided to show its rich collection to everyone here.
7. Sculptures and art installations by David Cerny
Located in almost every corner of the city (most located in the center). Perhaps the unusual works of this artist can not always be seen at first sight, so it is worth taking a closer look at the surroundings during a walk.
8. Museum of Erotic Machines
This is one of the most daring and most controversial places in Prague.
9. Hradcany Castle Complex
Former seat of Czech royalty. After a tiring tour, tourists can sit back and relax in the Royal Gardens.

This is the highest point in the city, reaching a height of 216 meters. From its top there is a beautiful view of the Prague panorama.
