Praha - et levende museum


Goethe beskrev Praha som "the pretiest gem in the stone crown of the world".

Vi var fire venninner som la høstens storbyferie til Praha og vi kunne ikke vært mer enige. For en fantastisk, vakker by.

Praha har vært skånet for krig og ødeleggelser gjennom historien. Byen preges av barokkens arkitektur og utsmykning, men har også mange bygninger fra renessansen og gotikken. Sentrum er kompakt og som skapt for spaserturer gjennom trange smug og travle torg.

Prahas gamleby, Stare Mesto, er byens sentrum på alle måter. Her finner du de fleste restaurantene, butikkene og mange offentlige kontorer. I motsetning til mange andre storbyer så er gamlebyen også en levende bydel. Her bor og jobber det fortsatt mange mennesker.


Staromestské Námestí, Gamlebytorvet, er hjertet av Praha. Midt på plassen finner du Jan Hus monumentet og Tyn kirken. Her er rådhuset med den berømte astronomiske klokken. Hver hele time setter klokkespillet i gang. Fra torget stråler gatene ut gjennom bydelen. Vi leide en leilighet i en av de mange gatene i nærheten av gamlebytorget. Der hadde vi nesten for god plass, for leiligheten ble ikke benyttet til så mye annet enn soving. I tillegg fant vi en fast frokostplass med verdens beste hummus.

Den over 600 år gamle Karlsbroen er et hovedbindeledd mellom Staré Mesto og Malá Strana. Broen er 500 meter lang og er omkranset av flotte tårn og skulpturer. I sommerhalvåret kryr det av turister, kunstnere, gatemusikanter og souvernirselgere.



Nedenfor slottet, mellom bymuren og Vltava-elven finner du en av Prahas fineste bydeler. En tur gjennom Malá Strana er som å vandre rundt i et stort museum. Denne bydelen er preget av fantastiske barokk bygninger.

Ovenfor Malá Strana ligger Petrinåsen. Spaserer man fra Malá Strana og opp Petrinåsen får man en fantastisk utsikt over Karlsbroen og Staré Mesto. To av oss tok oss en joggetur opp her tidlig en morgen, mens det fortsatt var mulig å løpe over Karlsbroen.


Oppe på Hradcany-høyden ligger slottsområdet. Slottet ble påbegynt på 800-tallet og er i dag Prahas fremste turistattraksjon, i tillegg til å være presidentbolig. I slottsområdet ligger blant annet St. Vituskatedralen, Presidentpalasset, Det gamle kongelige palass, Nasjonalgalleriet og St. George-klosteret. I toppen av tårnet på St. Vituskatedralen er det panoramautsikt over Praha. Gå ikke glipp av den såkalte Gylne gate (Zlata ulicka), en pittoresk liten gatestubb med brosteiner og små fargerike hus fra 1500-tallet.



Nové Mesto er nabobydel til Stare Město og ble grunnlagt på 1300-tallet. Her er også mange flotte byggverk og Prahas mest kjente handlegate. Vi satte av noen timer til shopping ellers ble det meste av tiden brukt til sightseeing. Shoppe kan man gjøre over alt.

Gå ikke glipp av Laterna Magika som er en kombinasjon av musikk, film, ballett og pantomime. Dette er spesielt for Praha. Jeg likte forestillingen kjempegodt.

Når man er i Praha må man også få med seg en klassisk kirkekonsert og besøke en av de mange ølstuene. Begge deler er en viktig del av tsjekkisk kultur. Vi fikk med oss begge deler. Vi var så heldige å møte en bekjent av meg mens vi var ute og gikk i byen og han tok oss med på en lokal ølstue litt utenom turistområdet.

  36. I must express my appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from
    such a dilemma. Right after checking through the search engines and getting basics which were not productive, was thinking
    my entire life was done. Being alive without the answers to the difficulties you've solved by way of your main blog post is
    a critical case, as well as ones that would have in a wrong way damaged my entire career
    if I hadn't come across your web page. You know-how and kindness in
    handling the whole lot was helpful. I'm not sure what I would've done if
    I hadn't encountered such a solution like this.
    I am able to at this point look forward to
    my future. Thanks for your time very much for the impressive
    and results-oriented help. I won't think twice to refer your web
    page to anybody who should get counselling about this subject.
