According to legend, Prague was founded in the 8th century when the duchess Libuše stood atop a rocky cliff overlooking the Vltava and prophesied: "I see a great city whose glory will touch the stars!". In the 14th century, Charles IV Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia personally elevated Prague into an imperial capital. Charles himself designed the layout of Nové Město, laid the first stone of the Charles Bridge, and founded Charles University. Over the following centuries, Prague experienced its fair share of ups and downs, not to mention a few defenestrations, but was spared the devastation that befell many European cities. Every visitor’s first stop should be the Old Town Square, for the beautiful Baroque buildings lining it, and the famed astronomical clock on the Old Town Hall. From here, you can easily reach the world famous Charles Bridge, and make your way up to expansive castle complex.
