The throne of Paris as the “city of love” of Europe can be in serious danger when you read this article about Prague. This eternal romantic city awaits for you to discover its characteristic landscapes and its majestic towers while you wish to stay here a bit longer.

It has six zones which used to be independent back in the day. The first one is Staré Mêsto, the old town. It holds the history of Prague and also a treasure, the Prague Orloj (the Astronomical Clock), still working from 1410! Next to this we have Malá Strana or the small town, which looks like the last centuries had passed away by the city, due to it contains most of its original palaces. Nevertheless, the great castle of Prague is located in a neighborhood called Hradčany, with its golden base and its azure roof. Another important neighborhood is Josefov, the Jewish one. Here don’t forget to visit the graveyard, a caotic amount of tombs near to a concentration camp in Terezin and surrounded by six sinagogues.
