Prague skyline from the top of the Old Tower is mini Europe in one city. A 360-degree view of this touristy and busy city is an experience you would never forget.
There is something about Prague make you wish you live in one of those buildings with spires.
And spires! Oh boy! The city has a lot of them! Try counting them if you could!
There are tall and short, large and thin spires.
Architecture? Gothic, Baroque, Neo-classical, Art Deco – name it – they have it all.
From above, you will be able to see churches, temples and a synagogue.
It feels like when you have visited Prague, you’ve visited most cities in Europe, if not all.
Don’t just watch the sunset from up there.
Wait until evening – and the cities looks more stunning and magical!
You could see the horizon in all corners – as far as your eyes could see.
They have new buildings, but you won’t even notice them. Or they are far from the city centre.
When you look down, the square is always busy with summer festivities.
You could go down and join the fun up close or be content watching from the top of the Old Tower. 😉
I think the best time to go up the tower is early in the morning and at sunset – so you could stay until evening.
I stayed at Cosmopole Hostel in a busy area where public transport to and from the train station is just a few steps from the door. The Old Town is around 20 minutes walk, passing by some of the city’s unique architecture. The hostel is surrounded by shops and cafes that are even late at night. The rooms are quite small but with only four people in it, you can still move around comfortably. Be aware that Prague is pretty expensive, so finding cheap accommodation can be a challenge. It’s also super touristy here, the earlier you book, the better you have the chance to get a bed space.
