Prague 5: Photography in Prague

Prague Part 1: The Worst Train Ride Ever
Prague Part 2: Prague…My Favorite European City
Prague Part 3: Jewish History in Prague
Prague Part 4: Prague Castle

If you’re into photography, Prague is the city for you. It is breathtakingly beautiful. And we went to Prague in December…when I nearly lost my fingers to the freezing cold. I can only imagine how wonderful Prague is in the comfort of spring or summer.

I googled “photography and Prague,” and found countless maps and suggestions. Here are some of my favorite spots.

  1. Old Town Square
  2. St. Charles Bridge tower – Old Town side
  3. St. Charles Bridge – Mala Strana
  4. Santa Maria Boat Wharf
  5. Letensky Profil
  6. Walk down from Strahov Monastery
  7. Lennon Wall

Old Town Square: This is an obvious spot and full of charm. Sadly, the Old Town Tower was under construction when we were there, and I missed out of the aerial views I so desperately wanted. I made it up with bubble pictures.

***IMG_4955**IMG_5018**IMG_4896**IMG_5008St. Charles Bridge tower – Old Town side: There are so many great places to view St. Charles Bridge and they each offer something different. Even on a rainy day, it’s worth a climb up the bridge tower to look down on the bridge and the city from above.

***IMG_5156***IMG_5166***IMG_5169**IMG_5172**IMG_5189St. Charles Bridge – Mala Strana side: Different areas offer different vantage points of Prague’s most famous bridge. If you cross St. Charles Bridge and walk underneath it on the Mala Strana side, you can catch some lovely views.

***IMG_6967**IMG_7014**IMG_7043**IMG_5433Santa Maria Boat Wharf: Just under Manes Bridge, you can steal some beautiful views of St. Charles Bridge – especially at night.

***IMG_5475***IMG_5482***IMG_5483Letensky Profil: This is my favorite place in Prague. If you cross over Svatopluk Cech Bridge and hike up to the top of the park, you’ll be in the perfect place to see all of Prague’s bridges. Feast your eyes on this:

***IMG_6418***IMG_6430***IMG_6441***IMG_7155***IMG_7157***IMG_7170Walk down from Strahov Monastery: Strahov Monastery is situated on a hill, and the walk down offer beautiful views of Prague.

***IMG_6812***IMG_6815**IMG_6809**IMG_6832Lennon Wall: This is more of a curiosity than anything else. But it’s a fun curiosity.

    Beautiful photos. Prague is definitely a lot warmer in summer but much more crowded
