- Prague Castle
Due to its architectonic value and historic meaning, the Prague Castle is one of the most important objects in Bohemia. It symbolises over a millennium of the Czech state history, it used to be the seat of Czech princes and kings and later even the presidents. Since its foundation it has developed into the present monumental complex of palace, office, clergy, fortification and housing buildings in all architectonic styles.
- Petřín view-tower :: Prague 1, Petřín Orchards, Lesser Quarter
The view-tower of Petřín is one of the main landmarks of Prague. This is why it is one of the best known Czech view-towers at all. Anyway, one cannot miss the striking similarity to the Eiffel tower in Paris. Yes, the builders from the Czech Tourist Club were inspired by Mr. Eiffel at the World Exhibition in Paris and decided to create a similar monument – within the limitations of the finance available of course.
The view-tower is situated in Prague, at the Lesser Quarter. You can get to the view-tower from the Filip boarding house by a 10 minute walk through a beautiful park.
- The Petřín maze :: Prague 1, Petřín Orchards
Right at the Petřín view-tower there is also a well known mirror maze, loved especially by the children. Just like the view-tower, this building was also constructed for the Jubilee Exhibition at the end of the 19th century. In one of the rooms there is a panorama picture of the battle with Swiss army on the Charles Bridge in 1648.
- Cable way
You can also get to Petřín by a cable way, which is a part of the city transport system. For a twelve Crown ticket it will take you from Újezd via Nebozízek up to Petřín. It operates daily between 9:15 and 20:45.
- Strahov monastery
The royal canony of the Premonstrate Order in Stahov is one of the oldest preserved cloisters of the Premonstrate Order in the world. Since its foundation in 1143 its continuity has actually not been interrupted. Not even fires, Hussite wars, religious wars or the communist regime managed to cancel this institution. At several periods the members of the cloister could not live in the cloister itself and had to live elsewhere, but in the end they always came back to the cloister walls and carried on.
