2) Swans of the Vltava River

On the west side of Charles Bridge, you’ll find a small park where you can see the Swans of the Vltava River. If the weather and season are perfect the more swans there are! The beautiful creatures will be the perfect backdrop to your Instagram pictures!

It is best to go when the area is not as busy with cars as that way you can get the full structure in your picture! Also when its late in the afternoon/nighttime, the lights will come on adding to the Dancing House’s beauty.
