Old Town Square crowned with the spires of Tyn Church. Much of Prague's history is preserved around the Old Town Square in its buildings.

The Golden Lane near Prague Castle. These cottages were built along the inside of the castle wall in the late 16th century for the Castle's guards and gunners. Franz Kafka lived in the tiny house at number 22 during the winter of 1916-17 and wrote his short story collection A Country Doctor here.

The entrance to Prague Castle. The Castle gates are crowned by copies of 18th century statues of Fighting Giants by Ignaz Platzer. Former Czech President Václav Havel helped design the current uniforms worn by the Castle guards.

St. Vitus's Cathedral is the city's most distinctive landmark and houses the crown jewels and the tomb of "Good King" Wenceslas.

Densely-packed tombstones in the Old Jewish Cemetery. Founded in 1478 and for more than 300 years, this was only burial ground permitted to Jews. Because of the limited space people were buried on top of one another, up to 12 layers deep. The last burial here was in 1787.

A delightful bronze memorial to Franz Kafka in the Jewish Quarter. Kafka spent most of his life here in Prague's Jewish quarter. He lived across the way, at 27 Dušní Street, and it's likely that he walked around this quiet square almost every day.
