The word Graben means “trench” in German, and dates back to an old Roman encampment in the Austrian capital. Back in those days, Vienna was enclosed by a city wall, with a trench alongside of it.

Somewhat, it serves as Vienna’s town hall, as well as the seat of government for the State of Vienna. The Wiener Rathaus isn’t a place where visitors can eat wieners, though a notable restaurant serving Vietnamese delicacies is located on the premises.
Spanish Riding School
It is a traditional riding school for Lipizzan horses that offers public performances in the Winter Riding School in the Hofburg. The Riding School calls these performances classical dressage, but most viewers would call it magic. Horses and riders both undergo special training that lasts for many years. The school has been training horses like this for more than four centuries. The 68 stallions – their ancestors came from Spain – have trained and performed at the Winter Riding School since about 1735.
Burggarten

One Austrian ruler, Kaiser Franz II used to work in the garden, which is now a place where people can enjoy outdoor lunches on pleasant days.

The Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter was established by St. Rupert in 690 AD and provided as the palace of the Archbishops until 1110.

It is bestrewn with street performers, tourist rides, and cafes and restaurants teeming with people. To soak in the vibe of the city, all you need to do is to get to the square, find a spot and let the energy envelope you.
Architecture:
There is no fee for admiring the brilliant and varied architecture of Prague. Known as ‘the city of a hundred spires’, it has baroque-style buildings and stunning Gothic churches that ooze old-world charm. Contrasting those are striking modern, Art Nouveau buildings such as the Zizkov Television Tower with the crawling-babies sculptures, and Dancing House (its two towers vaguely reminiscent of ballroom dancers) vying for attention.
Astronomical Clock:
The astronomical clock in the old town square is a mechanical genius and a must-see. Not only does it indicate the hours, it also marks the phases of the moon, the equinoxes, the seasons and the days. Watch the hourly spectacle as the needle moves to the accompaniment of animated allegorical figures that constitute this medieval wonder. Twelve wooden apostles emerge, nodding to the crowds gathered below; vanity admires herself in a hand mirror; a miser clutches a bag of gold; death rings a bell and the cockerel crows. The hour strikes.
Jewish Quarters (Josefov):
Delve into the Josefov or the Jewish Quarters of Prague, the best conserved complicated of historical Jewish statues in all of Europe. It has six synagogues, including the Spanish Synagogue and Old-New Synaogue, the Jewish Ceremonial Hall and the Old Jewish Cemetery. While the sites constituting the Jewish Museum are ticketed, it is still worth walking through the tiny district that was once home to nearly all of Prague's Jewish population. Saturday (Sabbath) is a good day to avoid the usual tourist crowds and take in the reflecting calm of the place.
Charles Bridge:
Spanning the waters of the Vtala, Charles Bridge, named after Charles IV, is the most iconic of Prague’s bridges. It is adorned with tall statues on either side, the most popular one being that of St John Nepomuk. Tradition has it that if you rub his feet, you will restoration to Prague. A pedestrian-only bridge, it has a life of its own with musicians happily playing to the large crowds, and hawkers peddling souvenirs and curios.
Prague Castle:
This 9th century castle in Prague is acclaimed to be the largest ancient castle in the world. The sprawling complex includes the gothic St Vitus Cathedral, Basilica of St George, a monastery, several palaces, gardens and defence towers. Most of the castle areas are open to tourists. You can spend a day walking around and taking in the architecture. Watch the change of guards at the palace gates every day at noon.
Wenceslas Square:
No trip to Prague is complete without ambling down the lively Wenceslas Square. A wide sloping avenue with a walkway in the middle, it is dominated by the statue of St Wenceslas on horseback and lined with souvenir shops, cafes and bookshops. Behind the statue is the majestic National Museum. Climb its ornate steps for a sweeping view.

A highlight of any visit is the Palatinus Baths, a huge spa complex that covers more than 17 acres and includes a bath with artificial waves, together with various swimming, medicinal, and children's pools capable of accommodating up to 20,000 bathers at a time.

Szent István Bazilika (St. Stephen's Basilica)
St. Stephen's Basilica was built over the course of 50 years in the 1800s, the largest church in Budapest. Originally the design of architect József Hild, it's construction was mostly overseen by the renowned Miklós Ybl, one of the leading architects of the time who also designed the Budapest Opera House. Its center dome is as tall as that of the Hungarian Parliament, at 96 meters high.
City Woodland Park (Városliget)
With its kids' rides and arcades; the massive open-air Széchenyi Medicinal Bath; the fairytale Vajdahunyad Castle; and the 100,000-seat People's Stadium. The park has had many additions over the years: the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Art; the Municipal Zoological and Botanical Garden; the excellent Transport Museum of Budapest; Tivoli Pleasure Park, laid out in the 19th century.
The Hungarian National Museum
A large classical building surrounding two courtyards, the superb Hungarian National Museum didn't move into its current home, though established in 1802, until 1847. In addition to its massive portico, a monument to the famous Hungarian poet János Arany impresses, as do its park-like gardens with their numerous busts of famous people.
The University Church
Its main front faces onto a thin side way, which barely does it justice. Built between 1725-42 (the two mighty towers were not completed until 1771), the principal façade incorporates a triangular tympanum with representations of St. Paul and St. Anthony, as well as the arms of the Pauline Order (a palm between two lions and a raven). The most beautiful Baroque church in Budapest is somewhat hidden, lying as it does in the south of Pest away from the main shopping streets.
Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum
At the time of the Cold War, the hospital was further secured against nuclear contamination. The Hospital in the Rock, this hospital and bunker now constitute a museum, where you can see exhibitions on lifesaving efforts here during the Siege of Budapest in World War II. In World War II, some were encouraged as an air raid housing and emergency hospital. Underneath Castle Hill, the rock is a maze of caves and passageways that have been used for various purposes since prehistoric times.
