Prague seems as well to have been designed to be a top romantic destination since it ticks all the boxes; it’s has a river, the Vlatava, crossed over by the picturesque pedestrian Charles Bridge, Karlův most: they altogether provide just and unbeatable 360-degree backdrop for a romantic atmosphere. Not to mention the narrow cobblestoned alleys throughout the city, the spires, the tram lines and the Prague Castle, more landmarks which makes this city just a unique romantic escape
