Many people compare Erfurt with beautiful and unique Prague. Probably, this comes from the same fabulous unpredictability that this city is famous for. It is hard to imagine what you will see as you make a step. Narrow medieval streets of the city with buildings that almost connect above your head, large number of churches, quaint and very harmonious interweaving of eras – you will find here all these and even more. The time itself flows here thoughtfully and calmly as the Gera River that crosses the city.
Visiting Erfurt for just few hours is simply the equivalent to refusal to visit this place. You should make a slow and a calm walk in order to understand this city better. An attempt to see more simply by running through its streets is meaningless. Every house, every wall, the decoration of each door or window will require your attention. Here everything is unique.
Among the attractions of the city we should definitely mention a museum with an oak tree growing in his heart. In order to inspect the exhibition you will need to walk on the spiral staircase that is built around the tree. The steps of the Cathedral Mountain are often used as a stage, and the city itself is an amazing backdrop for performances. The Bridge of Shopkeepers is also unique and famous for its half-timbered houses. This bridge built in the XIV century is longer than all other famous bridges - the streets of Europe.
