Located on the banks of Vltava River, the historic city of Prague and the capital of Czech Republic is said to be one of Europe’s best preserved cities. Practically untouched by the devastating wars of the 20th century, Prague has retained many of its historic buildings, castles, cathedrals, towers and bridges, which for the last thousand years, has been the shinning example of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
Prague is known as the “city of hundred spires” for its many gold-tipped towers and medieval church spires that puncture the skyline, but you may as well call it the city of hundred bridges. According to Prague.net, there are over three hundred bridges in the city. Eighteen of them span across river Vltava, and hundreds of other lead over many smaller rivers and brooks, and valleys.
