Things to do in Prague in June
The Charles Bridge is a must-see during your holiday in Prague. Built of stone and designed in a gothic style, this bridge connects the Old Town with the Lesser Town in Prague. It was commissioned by Charles IV in 1357 and built under the eye of architect Petr Parléř who was also behind the St Vitus Cathedral and the Prague Castle. Whilst the city views from the bridge are fantastic, at either end of the bridge is a tall tower which you can climb for even better views of the city. An interesting aspect of the bridge is its collection of baroque statues (most of which are copies today) that were placed along it in the 17th century. The most popular statue is the one of St John of Nepomuk – a Czech saint who was thrown into the river from the bridge.
For the chance to learn a unique skill, sign up for a workshop at Truhlar Marionety. Based in Vinohrady, this company offers puppet workshop courses for groups of up to 13 people in English. Courses last for 3-4 hours and are open to everyone aged six and over, making it a great family day out if the weather takes a turn for the worst. When you begin, you'll choose from 20 different types of puppets, or you can create your own totally unique one if you like. Since most of the parts are already pre-made, you don't need any specialist knowledge to do the workshop. When you're finished, you'll have your very own handmade puppet to take home with you. If you're not interested in making puppets, you can sign up for a specialist one-to-one wood carving workshop instead.
