City

Prague is a wonderful city, it’s not so big but enough to walk around to get tired in the end. history and modern architecture are strategically placed around the river and on the hills. If you planning to walk in the old city center, well that’s the only good way. then be sure to have good shoes as the sidewalks are cobbled and can hurt your feet. Be sure to try some local food on the streets, take a picture and climb uphill for awesome city view.
