Prague is one of the most beautiful cities I have been to, and we’ve visited a LOT of international cities! We’ve been here for about 2 months, and I still feel like we haven’t seen all of its splendors.
Prague has some of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen. It can be difficult keeping focused on the walkway while going through the older neighborhoods. Buildings are often adorned with fantastic paintings and/or statues. Your neck gets a workout as you shift your attention between the sidewalk and the buildings surrounding you.
Naturally, the wonderful architecture extends to some of the more modern constructs as well.
In addition to the fanciful adornments on buildings, Prague has some beautiful sculptures as well as some rather random art installations.
Weekend Life on the Square
Czechs love being outdoors, and when the weather cooperates the square positively comes alive. We’ve had a week of springlike weather, and it was something to be celebrated for sure.
Parks with gorgeous views of Prague
As is typical of any European city, there are plenty of parks here. Some are small green areas in a square or neighborhood while others are huge and offer plenty of trails for bicycles, rollerblading, and so on. Vysherad and Letna are particularly well situated to provide absolutely stunning views of the city in beautiful surroundings. Letna is extremely popular during warmer weather.
You can also find some great views from outside the castle entrance on the hill.
Places of worship
Prague was an especially important spot in its earlier history. It has attracted many cultures over the centuries. While most large European cities have their share of churches and the like, the Paris of the East seems to have had an extra portion of beautiful and unique structures.
And not to be outdone by humans
Need I go on?
And its beauty is only part of why I love Prague so much.
