Prague. Three days walk (day 2)


Charles IV put on his shoes made of straw and began his walk from Prague Castle to Vysehrad, the crown of the Bohemian Kingdom resting firmly on his head. Regardless of the theatrics, or maybe also because of them, Charles IV had an immensely successful reign. He founded Nove Mesto (New Town) and the Charles University, laid the foundations of the Sv. Vit (St. Vitus) Cathedral and the Charles Bridge and carried out many other civic improvements. This walk will follow Charles's and his successors' steps on the King's Road.
