ProcureCon 2018 the Top 5 Attractions

1) Mala Strana

One of the most historic districts of the city, Mala Strana lies on the flanks beneath Prague Castle, on the opposite side of the Vltava from the historical center of the city. During the Middle Ages, it was the district of Prague for the Germans, then the Italians, and formed a place filled with noble palaces, some of them still existing today.

With its splendid architecture and cobbled streets, Mala Strana has an atmosphere close to that of the Old Town, but this part of Prague has the advantage of being much less touristy than the Old Town. This means you can stroll more freely in the streets, spend time in cafes and restaurants, and browse its small shops without the big crowds of the Old City. This gives Mala Strana a more authentic atmosphere for many visitors looking for the real Prague. Make sure to take the funicular to Petrin Hill to enjoy the splendid views from up there and spend time strolling through its parks. For an even more panoramic view, visit the Petrin Tower, a kind of Prague's Eiffel Tower that towers over the hill.

2) The powder tower

You will appreciate the beauty of the powder tower more from a distance than if you simply borrow it to enter the Old City. This old city gate is one of thirteen original gates and began construction in 1475 to ornament the entrance to the Old City rather than simply as a gate and defensive tower. The details of Gothic architecture stand in sharp contrast to its dark-colored bricks, ornamental stonework and steeply pitched roof.

3) THE PRAGUE CASTLE (PRAŽSKÝ HRAD)

The impressive Prague Castle is the most popular attraction to visit in Prague. Located on a hill overlooking the Vltava River. It really reflects the bohemian architecture of the city. Inside the castle walls are three courtyards, beautiful gardens, and restaurants. St. Vitus Cathedral is also part of the castle. It has 21 chapels and a famous arch, the Golden Gate, containing a Venetian mosaic representing the Last Judgment of 1370.

4) MODERN ARCHITECTURE

The dance house was built between 1992 and 1996 and was planned to become a center of cultural activities. Designed in cooperation between Czech-Croatian architect Vlado Milunic and world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the dance house is located on a waterfront site that has been abandoned since the bombing of the original building. during the Second World War.

5) Charles Bridge

The Charles Bridge is in Prague what Tower Bridge is in London

His story is impressive, to begin with. The construction began in 1357 and it was completed in 1402 under the orders of Charles IV who wanted to connect the two sides of the city which were separated by the Vltava. Today, it is still a major crossing between the Old Town and Prague Castle, so it is likely that you cross the bridge several times during your visit. Be sure to climb the Old Town Bridge Tower for aerial views and spend time on the bridge enjoying the music played by the street musicians, and buying souvenirs from the many vendors.
