Walking tour of Prague at Night

Slowly, as the gas lanterns light up, a warm glow settles over Prague as day turns to night.

Overlooking the Charles Bridge with Prague Castle and St Vitus Cathedral in the background.

Prague, at the heart of Europe – loaded with charm and history – is so beautiful as it glows in the evening.

Fred and Ginger – examples of modernist architecture mingling the old and new.

Know as the city of 1000 spires – stunning views of the cathedral at night.

St Vitus Cathedral

Walking Prague’s streets at night by the glow of the lanterns.

Fireworks over St Charles bridge.

Always busy, walking around town after dark was never a problem.   Prague has a very safe feel – it was a pleasure to stroll the old cobbled streets each evening.

    • Prague is just such a magical city – I can only imagine how enchanting it would be to walk around time on a summer’s evening! We were there over Christmas – even with the cooler temps, we couldn’t get enough and were found out walking every night.

    • Buying a tripod was the best thing, although I found at times that I could get the shot by leaning against a building. With the city all lit up, there was more than enough ambient light. I couldn’t agree more though – the night shots are so special.

  8. Praha is a magical place, and even after the number of visits reaching the double-digits, I’m not tired of the place. Great nighttime photos!

  9. Hi, Anita. I was just about to do something similar, a year after your post appeared. Fortunately, there’s so much good stuff that there really isn’t any fear for duplicating a shot, or even a photo at a given location! Nevertheless, your post provided additional inspiration, and for that, I’m grateful! 🙂 Praha is rather photogenic, day or night, isn’t she?
