The Czech capital is one of the most beautiful places on earth – a space of magic, and a true paradise for the romantic spirit. Here you can walk along narrow medieval streets lit by authentic gaslight, row quietly together along the Vltava River or stop in a cosy café where time stopped a century ago.
PRAGUE CASTLE AND CHARLES BRIDGE
The old town or Medieval Prague is a favorite backdrop for movies and can easily spark feelings of contentment, ease, and romance. Begin with a walk down the hill from St. Vitus Cathedral, passing shops and cafes. The journey leads to the Charles Bridge. Acclaimed as the most romantic bridge in Europe, it is a masterpiece of architecture flanked by thirty baroque statues. Crossing the Moldau, the bridge offers a spectacular view of Prague Castle, especially at night when the castle and cathedral a fully lit.

Carriage ride through the medieval Old Town
A cable-car leads to the very top of the hill, where it is possible to visit the Stefanik Observatory, the Hall of mirrors and chiefly the Petrin Tower, a miniature copy of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Following the paths through the parks and orchards below the tower only adds to the romantic atmosphere.
A palace garden with an intimately romantic atmosphere just below the PetÅ™ín Hill, the Vrtba Garden is also the location for outdoor chamber concerts in the summer months.
A fascinating view of the medieval heart of Prague, along with outdoor seating over coffee or beer, is offered from the park atop Letna plain.
Kampa, a romantic island with an oval-shaped central square directly below the western end of Charles Bridge, is a truly magical location, linked with more than one legend as well as the legacies of a number of Czech writers and composers who once dwelled there.
