Photos of Prague: The Fairytale City of the East

In Czech Republic, Europe by Katelyn1 Comment

If you asked me to rank my favorite cities around the world, I’d probably give you a bewildered look. How darn you ask me my favorite cities or countries? That’s such a hard question to answer. It’s every travelers worst nightmare. However, I can tell you that Prague is one of my top favorite cities. I knew it was the second I emerged from the train station and made my way to my hostel as the sun began to set over the Charles Bridge. The architecture – Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and even a little Moorish Revival – it all pulled on my heart strings. Combine that with the tight cobblestone streets, street musicians playing for the gathering crowds, and friendly smiles of locals, I was in love.

Prague is commonly referred to as the fairytale city and as soon as you step out of the train station you’ll see why. At times I was half expecting to look over my shoulder and see Belle or Cinderella dancing and signing in the middle of the street instead of a bunch of American tourists snapping selfies on the Charles Bridge or the endless amounts of Asian newlyweds taking pictures in the Old Square.

If it wasn’t for my intense love for Belgium beer and chocolate, I probably would not have boarded my plane to Brussels. Prague is just too damn beautiful to not stay awhile. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words so here is my long-winded story of my short time in Prague.

A Few of My Favorite Photos of Prague

Don’t be surprised by the large of Asian couples taking wedding photos in the Old Town Center. They clearly will have the best wedding photos around! I think they are on to something here.

Prague is known as the “City of Thousand Spires.” How many can you count from this view on the Charles Bridge?
