Prague: A Walk Along Karlova Street,Prague

Karlova Street is a 350 meter narrow and winding pedestrianized street in Old Town, Prague. It is the fastest way to get to Old Town Square from Charles Bridge which links the top two Prague attractions located on opposite banks of Vltava River (namely Prague Castle and Old Town Square) hence it is the most convenient and popular street used by visitors who are on a walking tour from Prague Castle to Old Town Square or vice versa. 
I am blogging about Karlova Street because this is the first street in Old Town Prague that I walked on and a memorable one at that.
Karlova Street is located in the vicinity of Crusader's Square between Krizovnicka Street and Jilska Street. When I was there it was thronged with a huge crowd most of which was poured over from Charles Bridge, located just 50 meters away.
The entry into the street is sandwiched by two prominent landmarks namely St Salvador Church (on the left) and Colloredo Mansfeldsky Palace (on the right).
This happening street is lined with bars, restaurants, bakeries and cafes and is indeed a haven for food and dining in Prague.
Along the street visitors can find some authentic Czech food like the Grilled Ice Cream Cone which is super popular in this region.
Souvenir and gift shops are aplenty.

The street offers a little something for almost everyone as you can also find among other things cigars, crystals, cosmetics, a supermarket and even money changers.

A very prominent building called Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and St. Charles the Great is located somewhere in the middle of the street.

Karlova offers accommodation for visitors as well. There are hostels, hotels and apartment for rent lining the street. The location here is guaranteed ideal for Prague sightseeing, shopping and dining.  

Paved with cobble-stone all the way, Karlova Street offers so many interesting things to feast the eyes. The architecture of the buildings is splendid, the facades of shops and restaurants are unique and charming, the food, drool worthy and the ambiance, lively making my walk here quite an unforgettable experience.
