A view of the city from Kampa Island, easily accessible via the Charles Bridge.  Located in Prague’s Mala Strana neighborhood, it’s been recognized as one of the most beautiful islands in the world. From world class museums, restaurants and lovely walks and views there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Old Town, Prague

One of my favorite places to take photos in Prague was from the top of the Old Town Hall Tower. I never tired of the views from the top, visiting several times during my month in the city.

Our Lady of Tyn Church, also taken from the tower, and one of my favorite churches in Prague. The funny thing is, I never managed to go inside. Every time I walked by, thinking I would drop in, it was closed. I think that’s a good reason to go back to Prague!

The classically trained musicians playing throughout Prague’s Old Town were always a delight.

In addition to the many street musicians and buskers entertaining visitors throughout Prague’s Old Town (and other places in the city) you’ll also find artists sketching and painting. I caught this artist painting the view from a wall leading to Prague Castle.

  1. Hi Nancie, I’ve been to Prague and loved it, but none of my photos ever came out this good! Always a pleasure to see your photos!

    • Hi Rachel! Thanks for your kind words. I loved my time in Prague and would love to make the opportunity to go back again. I’d love to go back for the Christmas markets. Maybe next year! #TPThursday

  2. Beautiful photos! I’ve not been and I’ve never thought about it being a good city for solo travelers – but I would definitely consider going for a solo wander. Good to know!

    • Hi, Jill. It’s a great city for solo travelers. There is so much to see and do. I did quite a few free walking tours while I was there, too and they were fantastic.

  3. What a beautiful looking city. It looks like a fascinating place to visit.

    • Hi, Jill. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed with Prague. Since it wasn’t bombed during WW2, all of the architecture is original. I think this makes the city extra special. #TPThursday

  4. So many beautiful pictures! I love Prague! A bit of a coincidence since I wrote about the city last week (the Jewish Quarter). I want to stop by again and then, discover more of the country.

    • Hi, Ruth. I spent quite a bit of time in the Jewish quarter. Although the stories are heartbreaking there is something very special about that part of the city. #TPThursday

  5. Wow one month in Prague would have been wonderful. I love staying in a place for a month, getting a feel for local life. Lots of lovely photos!

    • Hi, Jan. I love traveling slow. I think it makes the entire travel experience so much more rewarding. #TPThursday
