Prague Castle
Every diva loves a castle! Prague castle is one of the most well known landmarks in the Czech capital. Perched high on a hill above the streets of Mala Strana, the castle is a great place to start a diva’s visit to Prague. Prague castle is surrounded by the small houses of the Golden Lane (my personal favorite, and if you’re feeling a little guilt, the Basilica of St. George. The best way to visit is to take a guided tour or an audio tour, and then explore the area after getting oriented. Prague castle offers spectacular views of the city below, and you can best enjoy them after climbing up 287 steps to the bell tower and yelling “Sanctuary! Sanctuary!.”

Charles Bridge
Charles Bridge is on the top of every Diva’s must-see list. It is also popular with Czech artists, musicians and souvenir vendors whose stands line both sides of the bridge year-round. A great time of day to come to the bridge is at sunset when one can enjoy a breathtaking view of the fully lit Prague Castle against the evening sky. The bridge is almost constantly filled with people. If you want to have it all to yourself, go there at night or very early in the morning. Be sure to touch the many statues as you make your way to the other side. They are sure to bring good luck and a safe return to Prague for all divas.

Streets of Old Town Square
No trip to Prague is complete without a peek at the Astronomical Clock. Wander the streets leading off the square, grab a café and pastry and enjoy the chimes as the religious figures dance every hour atop this amazing work or art. The clock was said to have been built by the protégé of an old clock maker, whom, at seeing his mentorship surpassed, gauged out the young clockmaker’s eyes so he would never make anything as beautiful again. Don’t let that story gauge out your day.
