Roaming: Prague

A day in beautiful Praha!

I’ve always been desperate to visit the Czech Republic’s capital city. So much so that I was starting to worry my expectations would not be met. But low and behold, Prague was so beautiful, so fanciful and so breathtaking… it really did not disappoint! I spent several days wandering the winding streets of Old Town, hiking up to the hilltop Prague Castle and eating street food like never before! Here’s just a glimpse of what I loved…

  • Frank Gehry’s Dancing House – the singular ultra modern prototype
  • Strolling along the Vitava River – a city with a river running through it means there must be beautiful bridges to cross
  • The National Museum – and the start of historic Wenceslas Square
  • Church of Our Lady Before Tyn – a landmark in Old Town Square
  • Begging for hope in Jewish Town – one of my favourite areas in Prague
  • Me having my first klobasa sausage, a slice of bread and that oh so special sauce – i think it was mustard!
  • Doughy and delicious trdelnik – wrapped around a giant rolling pin and baked over open coals, coated with sugar! So good.
  • A view from Prague Castle overlooking the city of a thousand spires – and the best illuminated buildings in Europe.

A few Instagram shots from my recent trip to Europe. 5 countries in 9 days! What a whirlwind of airports, trains, architecture, music, language and food! Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Vienna and Munich.

Not bad for a last minute trip, don’t you think?

Praha Hlavní Nadrazní

It’s Prague‘s main train station and one of my favourite shots from my most recent trip. Lots more to come though… so stay tuned.

In the meantime, which do you prefer? Black & White? Colour?
