What to see in Prague in 3 days
The visit to Prague is part of the well-known Imperial Cities Route, thanks to its proximity it is perfectly combined with Vienna e Budapest.
We try to divide the itinerary into zones so that the tour is a little more feasible, but as we said, the important thing is not the order, but to enjoy the city each at his own pace.
Giorno 1 (Old Town)
The Staré Město district, better known as the Old Town of Prague is probably the first settlement in the area. The reason: its proximity to the Vltava River, which facilitated daily life and trade with the inhabitants of the area. Even today, Staré Město still retains that medieval air that makes it one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in Prague.
The Powder Tower
The Powder Tower (Prašná brána) is the perfect place to start the tour and enter the majestic old town.
Built in 1475 it was originally one of the 13 gates of the walls, from which one entered the city. In 1541, it was destroyed by a great fire, but was soon rebuilt. In the seventeenth century, however, the tower was used as a powder warehouse, a circumstance from which its current name derives.
Today it is an excellent vantage point and you can go up for about 3,50 euros. If you buy the Prague Card, the ticket is included.
