The most important of the history of Prague

Every visitor to Prague should go through the so-called Royal Route at least once in their life. This route begins with a beautiful Gothic tower, called Powder Gate, which towers at the intersection of Na Příkopě and Náměstí Republiky and one of Prague’s main landmarks. Right next to this tower is a unique Art Nouveau building of the Municipal House, which enchants not only with its exterior architecture but also the exquisite interior. If you go further through the Celetna street, you will reach the very center of the city which is the Old Town Square with the medieval astronomical clocks located on the southern side of the Old Town Hall, the Prague Astronomical Clock. If you continue on Karlova Street, you will see an extensive Baroque complex of buildings, called the Clementinum, which foundations date back to the 16th century. Karlova street ends on the banks of the Vltava river and passes freely through the Old Town Bridge Tower on Charles Bridge, foundations of which were built by Charles IV. in the first half of the 14th century. On the other side of the river, the bridge ends with the Malostranská Bridge Tower and continues further towards the Lesser Town of Mostecká street. Towards the  Prague Castle you will pass through Nerudova street. At the Prague Castle there is the church of St. Vitus, the Golden Lane, the Wallenstein Garden, the Jewish Museum, the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Pinkas and the Old Synagogue, and the Wallenstein and Lobkowicz Palace with their gardens.
