Is there still a time when it is possible to see the historical center of Prague without people? Sure, but it’s only possible early in the morning, and in some places only outside the main tourist season.
We went with the camera to the Old Town Square, Charles Bridge and other popular tourist destinations. We were there for the first time in March – it was out of season, and also on Sunday morning, shortly after dawn. For the second time, we photographed the same place at the beginning of June, in the hours when it is busiest there. The differences in what the city looks like in its natural form and how it is perceived by tourists are captured in a comparative photo gallery.
Which Old Town or Wenceslas Square could be experienced early in the morning without people, at Charles Bridge it has been very successful lately in the morning. Sunrise usually attracts many photographers with statistics and people who just need to experience the sunrise and its atmosphere in one of the most famous places in Prague.
According to fresh study by the international organization World Travel and Tourism Council, prepared in cooperation with JLL companies, the Czech capital is gaining ground among the world’s cities, which is experiencing tensions caused by the growing number of tourists and is in danger of suffering in connection with it. In addition to Prague, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Stockholm, Toronto and Vancouver also fell into this category.
