Leaving Vienna was quite bittersweet. While we were sad to say goodbye to yet another city, Derek and I both were eager to arrive at our next destination: Prague. Neither one of us had ever been to this city so we had no idea what to even expect.
This city surprised us in so many ways. For starters, I never ever expected it to be so colorful. But what a glorious surprise it turned out to be. Candy-colors painted the majority of the buildings lining the streets, as well as the serene waterfront. Blues, greens, yellows, pinks, they were all there. And so many shades, too.
And the architecture. Just stunning. Breathtaking, really. Whether it was a palace, castle, cathedral, store or home, all of these buildings were decked out in detail. They all looked so immaculate. Around ever corner a new architectural gem was waiting to be discovered. To be such a compact city, we were amazed by the various architectural styles coexisting side by side. No matter where our eyes gazed, there was beauty everywhere. And so much history. As we meandered the maze of the cobblestone streets, we could feel the history seeping out of every alleyway. Once we crossed over the famous Charles Bridge and turned the corner to the Old Town Square, it was as if we had traveled centuries back in time.
While Prague wasn’t really our favorite city food wise, it was a really cool place to aimlessly wander. From the hilltop castle, to the lively Old Town, this city had a certain medieval fairy-tale vibe to it. Not to mention the beer. So many pubs with so many various types of brews. With all the walking, both our feet and our taste-buds were more than appreciative of all the many stops to these alehouses.
But enough of me yapping. Below are some of the photos we snapped along our visit.
Hope you enjoy!
