Prague

Explore the Jewish Quarter

praguebetterYou can pay for what sites you want to see, but we paid our way into all of the sites. We liked the Jewish cemetery and the Old-New Synagogue best. The buildings in this area were beautiful!

 

 

 

Also, the Castle Quarter

Our hotel was right next to the Charles Bridge. Our first day, we crossed the bridge and wandered in and out of shops until we arrived to the Castle Quarter. It’s an area that’s walled in and contains a large cathedral, Saint Vitus, a treasury, the Golden Lane, and much more. Our favorite was the Golden Lane that consisted of tiny living quarters for many of the city’s workers. They were lived in until WWII.

Old Town and the Astronomical Clock

Enjoy the local beer and food
