Mini-tour Kampa Park and Charles Bridge
This park – an island between the Vltava River and its side branch, Čertovka, where you can see the huge mill wheel of the 15th century former Grand Priory Mill, is one of the most romantic and picturesque places in the city. Not surprisingly, the prestigious traveler's server VirtualTourist declared it the second most beautiful city island in the world. Grassy areas of the island are widely used for picnics and relaxation.
The 14th-century Charles Bridge lined with Baroque statues ranks amongst the most popular tourist attractions in the city. Prague’s oldest bridge was built to replace the Judith Bridge that had been badly damaged by floods in 1342. Called Charles Bridge since 1870, was begun in 1357 by Charles IV and was completed in 1402. Strolling this picturesque bridge, with its impressive vistas over Prague Castle and the Vltava River, should be on everyone's bucket list.

Mini-tour to the Petřín Lookout Tower
The Petřín Lookout Tower (Czech: Petřínská rozhledna) is a 63.5-metre-tall steel-framework tower in Prague, which strongly resembles the Eiffel Tower. It was built in 1891 and was used as an observation tower as well as a transmission tower. Today the Petřínská rozhledna is a major tourist attraction. We get there by a public transport funicular. The two observation platforms are accessible via 299 stairs in sections of 13 per flight running around the inside of the structure, or an elevator. The outlook cabin located fifty-three meters high offers a wonderful view of the whole Prague. There are a gift shop and a small cafeteria on the main level. On the lowest level is a small exhibition area.
