Prague is a great city, it gathers history on its hands at easy and is not ashamed of showing it off with amazing modesty. The river Vltava divides the town in 2 main sections. The bit called old town has a collection of gothic to renaissance buildings. Churches are most gothic or baroque. Then just ‘above’ we have the Jewish quarter with its synagogues and cemetery and concert hall - Rudolfinum. Then just ‘below’ the bit called new town. Crossing the river one reaches the Castle and The little quarter. The Charles bridge which connects the two sides of the town is a work of art of its own with its gigantic statues. The view of the river and bridge is a postcard. When the sun shines its soft yellow and peach colours are a watercolour painting.
