Welcome to this site dedicated to the instructive and cognitive route
PRAGUE CITY LINE Royal Route.

The Royal Route and coronation of the kings of Bohemia Prague 1 - The Charles Bridge

The Royal Route is not a name of any Prague street and we would even not find it on the map. Yet it is frequently mentioned in traveller´s guides and belongs to the most often visisted places.  We all know it, almost everybody has been there during the walks through Prague but what actually do we know about it?

What kind of route is it? A traditional route where the festive coronation processions of the Bohemian sovereigns used to walk along before the actual act of coronation.

In this traveller´s guide we will introduce to you the route which became stabilized after centuries of smaller variations and which is the most familiar these days.

Prague 1 - The Charles Bridge and Prague Castle The Royal Coronation route starts in Náměstí Republiky (Republic Square), where once Royal Courtyard, the second residence of the kings of Bohemia, used to be, it continues through Celetná street towards Staroměstské náměstí (Old Town Square).

The route will take us over Karlův most (Charles Bridge) and further to Malá strana (Lesser Town). The route went on from Malostranské náměstí (Lesser Town Square) uphill along Nerudova ulice (Nerudova street) towards Pražský hrad (Prague Castle).

In this traveller´s guide we will do the sightseeing tour of this route for you and we will draw your attention to the most interesting places, historical events and landmarks of the route.

Prague Castle As a bonus of the first part of the traveller´s guide we offer the historical development of the Royal Route to you and especially the description of the coronation of the Bohemian kings. We believe that you will experience many new adventures on the Royal Route and that you will put yourself into the times when the royal processions were passing through Prague and people were celebrating the new king who they layed their hopes on.

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.

The Spanish Synagogue – the youngest yet the most beautiful

Pha1 - Spanelska synagoga a Zidovske muzeum008The youngest synagogue of the Prague´s Jewish Town Josefov was built at the crossroads of the streets Dušní and Vězeňská between 1867-68. Just like some other synagogues also this one was built in the Moorish style according to the project of Ignác Ullmann and Josef Niklas. The construction was performed in place of the former oldest synagogue called The Old School or „Templ“ which according to the extant historical sources existed already in the 12th century. It was called „school“ because the synagogues used to serve as educational institutes for the inhabitans of the Jewish community. » More »
