Apart from being declared as a city of love, Prague probably is one of the best destination for any medieval architecture junkie, with its well preserved Gothic and Romanesque monuments. Here are some of my best snap shots while walking around Prague’s old district.
A massive, fortified complex of churches and palaces, the UNESCO-listed Prague Castle is definitely on top of the list. Located on top of the hill across the Vlatava River, the complex offers the best panoramic views to see the lovely city.St. Vitus CathedralThe Rose window of this cathedralThe two guys below the rose window were the architects of this Palace complexDrinking fountains can be found around Prague old district. This on the photo with two holes is an interesting one.A commemorative medallion installed outside the house of a victim during Prague’s Nazi regime.

See the impressive St Nicholas Church, Tyn Cathedral and Old Town Hall and pause to admire the world-famous Astronomical Clock, with its mechanical procession of 12 apostle figurines.Wenceslas Square is one of the business centre of old Prague. The Dancing House building by Ar. Frank Gehry has a very non-traditional design, and was controversial at its time because the house stands out among the Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings for which Prague is famous.
