Founded during the Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque eras, Prague was the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia and the main residence of several Holy Roman Emperors.
Prague is known for its beauty and architecture. There are many places in Prague which are famous for its photographic scenes. We decided to explore Prague and try and get some decent pictures for our trip.
The castle complex in Prague, the Czech Republic, built in the 9th century. It is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. The castle was a seat of power for kings of Bohemia. the best part of the castle is to take the tram up and walk on your way down. If you are not a history person, I would still advise you to visit the castle for amazing views of the city.
Dancing House, Prague
This is one place about which I had no clue on the history but just wanted to go as have been seeing so many pictures on Instagram but when I reached I definitely wanted to check some history online and as said on Wikipedia “The Dancing House, or Fred and Ginger, is the nickname given to the Nationale-Nederlanden building on the Rašínovo nábřeží in Prague, Czech Republic. It was designed by the Croatian-Czech architect Vlado Milunić in cooperation with Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront plot”.
This is one place you should visit in the morning hours if you are looking for professional photography as the place gets really busy with people trying to get the best pictures.
