City of a hundred spires

For centuries, Prague has been a centre of culture, architecture and enlightenment. Today, she's full of tourists getting snap happy and attempting to see her marvels in one or two days. That's impossible, but if you are only here for a limited time, there are some places you must visit. Charles Bridge, of course, will link your walk from Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock to the wonders of the Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral. The Art Nouveau wonders of the Municipal House are right by the Powder Tower, and nearby Wenceslas Square has the statue of the sainted man himself and the golden domed National Museum, on the steps of which Jan Palah burned himself alive. Also, the Jewish area has various synagogues and the cemetery.
