Lesser Town swans
Head to the waterfront on the west side of Charles Bridge and you will find a small park. Here you can view the beautiful river and swans’ swimming along. If you are lucky and the season is right, you will see more swans then you have in your entire life. These swans are located just north of the bridge and are referred to as the lesser town side. The best time to visit and capture the river and swans is right before sunset.

Prague’s Loreta caught an eye by only a few tourists, which makes it a perfect Instagram photo. With low houses, narrow streets and a picturesque empty park. A remarkable Baroque pilgrimage complex including the Santa Casa, enclosed by cloisters, the Church of the Nativity of Our Lord and the steeple with its world-famous carillon, has stood for nearly four hundred years. It is indeed a special place in Prague that charms tourists with its beauty.

Sidewalk near Charles Bridge (Along Smetanovo nabrezi)
If you are looking for a spot from where you will be able to capture a part of Charles Bridge, and Prague castle at the same time, then head down the path from the Charles Bridge. It is located just south of Charles bridge and is at the east riverside of the old town. Any time is perfect to get a picture as every season and every weather has its own beauty and effect: cold and quiet evening offers the perfect reflection in the river below, and makes a stunning overall impression of the city. During rainy days it adds more mystery to the photos. You can make your own perfect capture.

Terasa “U Prince”
The stunning view from the terrace totally worth the effort getting through the crowds there. The terrace is located on the 5th floor of the Hotel, in the Restaurant “U Prince”. Here you have the double shot, engaging into the Czech food culture, plus having the best spot on the vibrant Old Town Square, featuring all the important sights. Better to make a reservation to secure your hot-spot. #followmwtotherooftop
