Streets of Prague

Posted 19 January 2013

Before visiting Prague, I had a lot of romantic notions about how beautiful the city would be. We arrived at night, and driving past Prague Castle for the first time all lit up and towering over the canal is one of the most memorable moments of my trip. It was like stepping back in time; a real-life castle with an impossibly beautiful presence. No photos, but forever imprinted in my mind.

Prague really is a special place – with ornate buildings lined up along spacious streets, delicious pilsners, the charming Old Town, impressive views over the city, and traditional Czech-style cafes (a cross between a restaurant and a large dining hall) which are open all hours of the day. We planned our stay to coincide with Christmas, which really was a world away from the usual balmy weather and family traditions back home. Sadly no snow, but the extravagance of Christmas lights, markets, carols and mulled wine was more than enough.

Hey Giovanni, Thanks for your kind words! I pay for travels just like everyone else - for the better part of last year I worked full time plus took on freelance work to save for my trip. xx

I just discovered your blog a couple days ago and I absolutely love it. I lived in Italy for five months at the beginning of last year and I traveled to many of the same cities as you have recently. Your photos are great. They have an interesting tone that brings out some of the raw beauty in the cities. Prague is such a beautiful city. Unfortunately, I also wasn't able to get any photos of the castle, but it's certainly a memory I'll never forget. I was curious, if you don't mind me inquiring, how do you pay for your travels around Europe? Best, Giovanni
