Charles Bridge (Karlův most) is a 14th century stone bridge linking the two sides of Prague. This magnificent structure, one of the city's finest attractions, is the main pedestrian route connecting the Old Town with the Lesser Town / Prague Castle. A total of Baroque statues began to be placed along either side of Charles Bridge in the 17th century.

 

A 17th-century baroque monastery building with an impressive central atrium makes a beautiful setting for Prague’s Museum of Music. The museum’s permanent exhibition, entitled ‘Man-Instrument-Music’, explores the relationship between human beings and musical instruments through the ages, and showcases an incredible collection of violins, guitars, lutes, trumpets, flutes and harmonicas.

Highlights include a grand piano once played by Mozart in 1787, and the Rožmberk Court Ensemble of 16th-century woodwind instruments. The exhibits are brought to life by recordings of music played using the actual instruments on display.

       

       

       

 

This is no joke – John Lennon is in Prague – well, to be precise, his wall is in Prague although John Lennon himself never visited Prague in his short life. On the his death, youths of Prague decided to have a symbolic burial place for a man they admired for his fight for equality and peace and freedom for all. The site of this burial place became the John Lennon wall.
