Greg had not been to Prague, Czech Republic yet-so I took him for a long weekend. I do love this city! We did lots of walking, at least 18km a day- Greg wanted to kick my butt by the end of each day. We saw Prague Castle, did a bike tour through the city, did a show, saw music, went to great restaurants, and investigated neighborhoods. We love the great art structures around the city. The FREEDOM wall was one of my favorites. The Dancing Building is very cool! We saw typical Praue flats, which are pretty cute. We had dinner with one of my co-workers and his wife. It was a jammed pack 5 days. If you haven’t been to Prague it is a must!
Some interesting facts of this Bohemian city- Prague history is an epic story. Inhabitants of the city have witnessed a declaration of independence, Nazi control, brain washing communism & capitalist democracy. And that was just the 20th century! Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, Prague has become one of Europe’s (and the world’s) most popular tourist destinations. It is the sixth most-visited European city after London, Paris, Madrid, Rome and Berlin. Prague suffered considerably less damage during World War II than some other major cities in the region, allowing most of its historic architecture to stay true to form. It contains one of the world’s most pristine and varied collections of architecture, from Art Noveau to Baroque, Renaissance, Cubist, Gothic, Neo-Classical and ultra-modern. It was also Mozzart’s favorite city and it’s known that he had stayed with many citizens of Pargue when he was fired by the King in Austria.
