Usually when people ask me where I come from I say the Czech Republic and they would say Prague. Prague (Czech Praha) became very popular after the collapse of Communist government back in 1989 and a lot of tourist are visiting from all over the world. So for those who doesn’t know, Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic.
I looooove Prague. I went to High School plus lived there for six years. I knew that Prague is beautiful but I fully realized it when I started travel and was coparing her with other big cities. I miss her sooo much!
Prague is no like other city. I love Rome, London, Washington D.C., San Francisco, but non of these cities are as picturesque and magic as Prague is. You can let yourself get lost in her narrow historical streets, close your eyes and relax in many parks, or walk on Charles River Bridge long after midnight when there is just you and last street musician.
Prague isn’t big (1.2 million people) but that’s her beauty. She also wasn’t damaged by second world war, historical buildings are preserved well and most modern buildings are situated in harmony with the old ones .
Instead of me I’ll let my photos talk and I borrowed words of Czech writer whose description of Prague is so beautiful:
“Prague is such a goddess of love, able to give to everyone, without loosing the reputation of being beautiful, charming and honorable, faithful, as becomes an immortal goddess. You will find her in all her guises, the Romanesque and Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque, and Rococo, Classicist and Empire, Art Nouveau and contemporary. Here too she is the goddess of gardens and bridges and towers, of which there are so many that nobody has ever counted them exactly. She is a beauty for all seasons.”
