Prague is one of the most marvelous cities in the world. The city is divided into two parts by the Vltava River. Along with the Athens, Rome, Paris and London Prague belongs to the oldest metropolises of Europe. It still has its unforgettable charm: one can get access to all the sights, as the restoration of the most important monuments and historical building is already finished.
The capital of Czech Republic has two faces. From one side there are quite a lot of streets with modern shops, and from the other – it's easy to find some that have the atmosphere of the 50s. The center of Prague consists of four quarters. On the right bank of the Vltava River take place Mala Strana and Hradcany. World-famous Charles Bridge connects the banks.
Charles Bridge is one of the best-known points of interest in Prague. The bridge used to be the entrance of the city, but nowadays it unites all the historical paces of Prague. It is 550 meters long, 10 meters wide and 16 meters tall. Along the bridge you'll see 42 stone sculptures, which were presented to Charles. Nowadays plenty of tradesmen on Chares Bridge try to sell you various trifles that would remind you about Prague for a long time. The offer is really rich: you can buy everything there starting with colorful pullovers and ending with some jewelry and friendly jests. Your walk along the bridge may be accompanied by music: plenty of singers find this place the best for showing their talents.
