Prague Trip - Part 4: Vltava & Lesser Town

In our fourth day in Praha it was time for touristy things again. We decided to walk from our hotel in New Town to Prague Castle in Lesser Town because this route allowed us to see many sights we wanted to visit in a one trip.

Vltava

Vltava is the longest river of Czech Republic and runs through Prague. It's crossed by many beautiful bridges. Next to river we could find one of the Prague's most famous work of modern architecture, Dancing House. I've seen many pictures of it and was happy to see it with my own eyes. One of the popular activities on Vltava is to rent a paddle boat and enjoy the summer day from another view. Unfortunately we had so much walking to do that our legs were too tired for any paddling. There's real boat rides too.










Charle's Bridge

The most popular of all the bridges crossing Vltava is the Charle's Bridge, connecting the Old Town and Prague Castle. It's the hotspot for tourist and I heard that it's often so crowded it can be hard to move there. It's also a place for artist drawing portraits of tourists and little booths selling souvenirs. We crossed the bridge in a morning time so we were able to walk freely, but when we were coming back from the castle it looked to be really crowded so one time was enough for us.








We left our wishes too




Lesser Town

Malá Strana, or Lesser Town, is beautiful area other side of the Vltava river, where the Prague Castle is located. I think this would be a nice part of the town for a tourist to stay. I really liked the red rooftops of the buildings. One of the popular spots to visit is the John Lennon's wall, which is located really close to Charle's Bridge when you turn left. The wall is changing all the time because people are painting over it over and over again.










Prague Castle

Prague Castle is located on the top of the hill of Lesser Town. Entering the castle is free, but if you want to see everything you should buy a ticket. We decided to check only free areas and I think that's totally enough, especially if it is a hot summer day. Only thing I would have wanted to see but couldn't without a ticket is the Golden Lane, which has tiny colorful houses. One of the most impressive buildings inside of the Prague Castle is the St. Vitus Cathedral. There is free area in the cathedral and if you don't want to see every tiny details located next to the walls, it's totally enough to experience how beautiful this building is. Highly recommend to visit it, but a ticket is not necessary for a nice experience! The castle is worth visiting because up there opens up a really beautiful view over the city.
















Poor boy got molested by people's wishes
