Prague – An impression on your Imagination

Rain rain go away come again some other Eastern European day.


But seriously, the weather was really beginning to cramp our style after it started in a Budapest, continued through Vienna, and moved in with us in Prague. And I know I shouldn’t be complaining with the heat and droughts going on back at home, but I just wish I could give you a little bit of this and take a little bit of that. Moving on… Welcome to Prague!


Prague is without a doubt the most beautiful city I have ever visited rain or shine. It is a smorgasbord of architectural styles and artistic details with the Vltava River running through it. Everything about the paving stones beneath your feet and the uncountable spires on the churches create a incomparable physical charm. The airpirations of the thousands of years worth of physical structures throughout the entire city are beyond satisfying the basic human’s eye. Prague it’s isn’t just a city, it’s a masterpiece.


People say Prague’s history is one written by fire and sword, as well as pen, paintbrush, chisel, axe, and trowel. With it’s location in the heart of Europe it is at the confluence of trade routes, political interests, and cultural influences. It is a city of diversity with the co-existence of Czechs, Germans, Jews, Italians, Russians, and Ukrainians. The city may not have a peaceful history, but it certainly had an eventful one. However, today the country has no enemies. The humble house of the president sits on top of the city on the way to the famous castle and believe it or not it needn’t have any security at all. Can you imagine?


I’m not always about site seeing as much as I am getting to experience what life would be like as a local, however in Prague just like Rome there are things you must see! So Tyler and I decided to jump in an antique Skoda and hit the highlights… We decided it was time for a break when it came to exploring in the rain. =) The famous monuments such as the Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge, and Prague Castle are the three in which you can’t skip out.



Charles Bridge connects Old Town with Lesser Town. Its construction started in the 14th century and it is one of Prague’s most beautiful structures. During the day, it is a bustling place of trade and entertainment, as musicians busk and artists sell their paintings and jewelry.


Prague Castle, the biggest ancient castle in the world, according to Guinness World Records, rises like a dream above the city offering beautiful views of the areas below. Also on site is the St. Vitus Cathedral with its lookout tower, the Castle Picture Gallery, several palaces and museums and the beautiful Royal Garden, among others.



Czech cuisine is typically based around pork or beef with starchy side dishes such as dumplings, potatoes, or fries, and GOULASH galore. Similar to that we had in Germany… Very rich! And the drink of choice for the locals is a good cold beer, another thing they have in common with the Germans. Pubs abound throughout the city, and are an important part of local culture. I think Tyler enjoyed this cuisine much more than I did, it was delicious, but not something you could eat everyday. However, we did find a delicious French Asian restaurant by the name of Nostress we both fell in love with, and it made for a nice break from the meat and starches.



Despite the weather and getting kicked out of our hostel a day early our trip to Prague was wonderful. I guess one of us (cough) or both (cough) found out the hard way that there are only 30 days in the month of June…. This is what happens when you’ve been gone for seven months. Time is flying by!! I can’t believe our eastern European tour has already come to an end and it’s time to board our flight to Russia!!! See ya there!


Ciao!
