I love Prague. Seriously. I fell in love with this city. Maybe it was the Art Nouveau styled architecture, or maybe it was that every person I interacted with was friendly, maybe it was the Cannabis infused Vodka, or the Hot Wine, maybe it was all those things. I just know I left with nothing but good feelings about this city, and I promised myself that I would return.
Prague is one of those cities that I’ve been wanting to visit from the first time I saw photos of its snow covered spires in the winter, and the gorgeous photos of its Christmas markets. I was there in October, too early for the Christmas markets, but not too early to enjoy this wonderful old city.
Our hotel, King’s Court, was located right in the city center. So we walked everywhere. Which means my feet were killing me!! Almost all of the streets in the city center are cobblestoned, and this wrecks havoc on your feet. It’s no joke, however, that didn’t stop me from enjoying Prague. At the end of the day, I went back to the hotel, soaked my body and feet in a nice hot tub while I sipped on some Hot Wine. 🙂
I fell in love with the Hot Wine. It goes by many names pending on the country, but basically it’s a wine that is spiced up, and heated up. After walking to the top (and the hill is huge, or maybe it’s just that I was slightly out of shape 😀 ) to Prague Castle, and then walking around the compound, my feet (yes, I’m moaning about my feet again) were killing me. As we left, there was a kiosk type stand near the Vineyard, and I grabbed a cup of Hot Wine to go. As I slowly sipped on the wine, it was amazing how I didn’t care that my feet were killing me.
We were only in Prague for 2.5 days, and we spent one day on a day trip to Kutná Hora to check out The Bone Church. When you have such a short time in a location, I recommend just hanging out, walking around, and getting lost while seeing what you see versus checking out too many interiors (i.e. museums, etc). So we spent a lot of time walking around and enjoying the sites.
This is what we saw:
I hope that you’ve enjoyed my photo tour of Prague. It’s a wonderful city, one that is not to be missed.
