Apartment rentals in Prague
There are plenty of hotels providing accommodation in Prague. They set their prices according to a three-seasons scheme: high (Christmas, New Year, Easter, May, June, September, October), middle (July, August), low (from November to March). Prague is not the cheapest European city, and a good room will cost you. Self-catering apartments in Prague constitute a growing market and provide a cheaper and more exciting hotel alternative.
For the same amount of money, often less, you will not only get a full apartment for yourself and your companions, but also all the comforts you are used to at home.
Rent an apartment in Prague, and you will save money on food by cooking at home if you want to, bring guests anytime, have drinks whenever you like.
Because short-term apartment rentals in Prague are priced per unit, not per guest, you will save money instead of paying more when you travel with companions. Renting a 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartment in Prague allows you to spend quality time together in comfort and privacy without being confined to separate and often small hotel rooms.
There are plenty of high-quality apartment rentals in Prague to choose from, and you are sure to find the one that is perfect for your needs. It is easy to find an apartment close to the Old Town and to other places of interest of Prague, so you do not spend time commuting or walking long distances. Sweet Home Abroad also offers apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America.

The Charles Bridge

Paris has the Eiffel tower, Rome has the Colosseum, and Prague has the Charles Bridge (Karlův Most). It is at once a historic site and an attraction, a hundred-pictures-worthy point and a heavy-laden Middle Ages wonder. The construction officially started in 1357, when Charles IV, dissatisfied with wooden bridges burning down or wrecking in floods, commanded the young architect of the St. Vitus Cathedral to build a new solid one, made of stone this time. The numerous baroque statues were added by the 17th century, giving the symbol of Prague its spectacular wondrous look and at the time symbolizing the triumph of Catholicism in Bohemia. Most statues have been replaced by copies, and only a handful standing today are still the original ones. You can spend hours examining only the statues themselves.

Taking in an oddly harmonious blending of Gothic and Baroque styles that the Charles Bridge represents, let alone observing the surroundings adds up to a considerable amount of time typically spent on the Bridge, which explains the throngs of tourists hanging around day and night. Even at the darkest hours, even at dawn you are not likely to be alone taking photographs of the Prague Castle, the St. Vitus Cathedral and other views, which are truly spectacular, especially at night, when all the buildings are illuminated.

The Old Town bridge tower, from where the construction of the bridge had began, offers an even more breathtaking view of the city for only 50 koruna (less than 3 dollars). Unfortunately, it is only open during the day. The summer closing hour, however, is 10 pm, so you just might catch a perfect sunset shot from there. There are some surviving sculptures, both originals and copies, that face the Old Town and are worthy of a close look.
