Greetings! And as always, thank you for spending some of your moments with me. Moments are important, as once they are spent, they are gone. So I genuinely appreciate the moments you have chosen to spend here with me.
This is basically a part two of my “have to go somewhere” time where the first part was in Budapest (post on that earlier if you would care to check it out) I went with my sister, and from Budapest we ventured to Prague. Wow! I wasn’t expecting what we found!
The city is in a word WONDERFUL. Everything. Public transit, the food, the people, the architecture, the cobblestone side streets and the surrounding areas. The more Sis and I explored, the more we knew we just HAD to come back for a longer amount of time. I truly believe I could live here. I loved everything about it.
Every view was magnificent.
The St. Charles Bridge was like walking through history.
We made a point of getting to the main town square to see the infamous Astronomical Clock. Amazing.
Clay colored rooftops everywhere.
We took a side trip and I wasn’t quite ready for what we were about to experience. Picturesque church looking building with adorned grave sites in the garden. Walked down a wooden staircase to this:
Yes, everything made with human bones. The church was to be built on a graveyard and instead of building over it, the graves were gently dug up and the remains adorn the inside of this building? Seriously? I found out that this is world famous and after I got home I actually saw a piece on this very thing on National Geographic. Honestly? My visit was brief……….
The colors were fantastic. Everywhere.
I felt like I was in the middle of a painting. The skies were perfect, the wind was crisp, the views were never ending. It literally took my breath away.
Quaint cobblestone streets were hidden but easily discovered and it was the perfect afternoon just meandering down them. Quaint shops, fantastic doorways, friendly people.
“The City of a Thousand Steeples” is a perfect name for this fabulous city.
I found not one thing I did not literally love about Prague. It is an expensive city to explore. A nice hub for traveling to other major cities by train if you so desire. An adventure awaiting literally around every corner. Pilsner beer galore. I could go on for days.
Prague. If you haven’t been there, put it on your list. You will definitely not be disappointed. Next time I go, I definitely want to go for more than a few days. t feels like a perfect city to write in, so spending a month there and finishing my book is something I want to seriously consider.
Even though I simply could not do this fantastic city justice with. simple blog post, I hope you enjoyed my snapshot of Prague, Czech Republic.
Until next time……….be kind……….always,
