I found myself in Prague after a scenic, snowy coach ride from Munich. Once clear of the dreariness of German boarders, the landscape just ran away with itself, becoming more and more beautiful with each passing moment. Prague was certainly a nice change from the hectic, huge and massively populated regions I had previously come. It was like something of a fairy tale.
I have to admit that prior to actually arriving in the Czech Republic I had never even heard of the country, let alone what it had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised and undoubtably shocked. It’s truly one of the most incredible European countries.
We arrived in the afternoon, after a long and typically unlawful Czech experience at the servo station, and the city was truly stunning. I felt like I had stepped into a Disney movie. The architecture was intricate and aesthetically pleasing with each turn, and the entire city looked untouched.
One of the greatest things about Prague is the fact that it is one of those amazing cities that is easy to see on foot. We began at the Prague Castle, which was quite literally one of the most incredible places I have ever seen.
We spent some time at the John Lennon’s wall, reading as much of the writing as was decipherable. We wandered through Christmas markets and devoured traditional Trdelnik which is a kind of spit cake that is made from rolled dough, wrapped around a stick and grilled, and then topped with sugar, waltnut and Nutella. It’s safe to say this is my favourite desert and we went back the next day for round two… and three.
Charles Bridge is arguably the number one tourist attraction in Prague, and this is for a very good reason. The entire bridge feels like a scene from Beauty and The Beast. Huge gargoyles line it, and you could spend a long time making your way across. It is without a doubt somewhere I would like to go back and spend a day taking photographs of.
Prague’s bar and club scene is as appropriately raucous as its infamy suggests. The clubs spin their tunes from dusk till dawn, so whether you’re into serious clubbing or just a late drink and a quick dance, Prague is a good night out for one and all. I can’t remember much of my night out in Prague, only that buckets of Mojito were cheap and chips and we all practically had to carry one another home at around 4am.
Oh, and kebabs. We ate a shitload of kebabs.
My only regret is that I only had an iPhone with which to take photographs so the most beautiful times I had in Prague I was unable to capture.
