After limping on the side of Prague Castle, I crossed over Charles Bridge into the Old Town. Staromestske Square Namesti is an impressive landmark of Prague with its characteristic Gothic architecture. If you have ever heard of the name “Chicken Square”, this is the way that my Vietnamese people call or call to this place.
Surely anyone who wants to see the world famous Astronomical Clock was built in 1410 on the walls of the town hall. Heard that from the old time, every time the clock pointed at the right time, you will see a lot of people looking up to enjoy the bell and special performances, 12 apostles of Jesus go through two This journey ends with the sound of a golden cock on the roof that lasts about 45 seconds. Unfortunately, the day I went to this project is in the maintenance phase so I can not see the chicken.
Not only rich in history and beauty, this unique astronomical clock also contains many symbols, such as four statues located on either side of the clock represent the four deepest fears of Prague greed, arrogance, death, and invasion of the Pagan dynasty.
Facing the astronomical clock, on the other side of the square is the Church of the Gothic Týn, a place that is easily recognizable when it comes to the square. The 14th-century Gothic cathedral, in addition to its impressive exterior, is the top-rated church in Prague.
3.5 New Town – New Town
For a moment of straying from the Old Town, I reached New Town – the modern shopping mall of Prague. Just like in other big cities, a number of chain stores are sure to satisfy any shopping enthusiast.
Alternatively, if you have time, you can also visit Wenceslas Square with its horse-riding statue in the middle of the main road; Municipal House to feel the splendor of the city; or Dancing house – The house of dance is very unique architecture in Prague.
DAY 2: WHEN THE TIME IS NOT BACK
As the first day has passed by most of the desired points, the second day I choose to go to places that need more quality and take the time to enjoy the dishes in this lovely city.
First day because I did not buy tickets to the castle early so I decided to come back the next day so I could really spend some time here. I do not want to do something that is not good when I know what the value of cherishing opportunities is.
If you look at the tickets in the link above, I bought Circuit B to the main and largest areas of the population: St. Vitus, Old Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica and Golden Lane. There are some things I’m very impressed with here:
Prague Castle is noted as the oldest castle area has the largest surviving history of the Guinness Book of World Records.
The word “defenestration” comes from a historical event that occurred here in 1618, when two allegedly violating Christian liberty were thrown out of the window. Luckily, they were only injured, not killed.
On March 15, 1939, shortly after German imperialism forced the Czech president Emil Hacha (who had been forced into a heart attack during the negotiations) to give control of the country, Adolf Hitler stayed in the castle. Prague 1 night to “survey his new property”.
One of the buildings I am most impressed with in Prague Castle is St. Petersburg. Vitus Cathedral – an architecture that they took more than 600 years to complete. You can go to the door free of charge but will have to buy tickets for some special areas.
ST. VITUS CATHEDRAL
The Golden Lane area is a small, last-minute, colorful tour of tiny homes like the tiny world. Built in the 15th century, this was once home to jewelers. On the first floor some of the houses you can visit the model life of the ancient people, some have been renovated as a souvenir shop. The second floor of the intercourse is along the display of the armor, weapons and images of some rooms punished the day before.
During my visit to Prague Castle, I was very impressed with the gatekeepers. I call the elders guarding and guarding the relics because they see with their own eyes how friendly they are to visitors, care and attention to the history they are protecting daily. A few days ago I read that the 200-year-old Brazilian National Historical Museum was burnt, and then wondered How are the gatekeepers there?
