The Basilica of St Peter and St Paul features probably the most instagrammed doors in the entire country. This makes the neo-Gothic church, located within the Vyšehrad fortress in Prague, one of the most visited attractions.

The Dancing House or Tančící dům is one of the more recent Czech landmarks. It was completed in 1996 by Frank Gehry. The building is an example of deconstructionist architecture and is also known as the Fred and Ginger because of its reference to iconic dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

4. Charles Bridge
