I managed to leave enough of my heart in Prague, Czech Republic, which would necessitate my going back someday to reclaim it. It was only my third time in Europe, so I had already been tempted and seduced by the wily and comely offerings of Paris and Rome.
Prague promised not only to court my senses to sublime ecstasy, but to ensure that I would fall hopelessly in love with it. So who was I to refuse?
Prague proved to be an enchanting city that takes pride in restoring and maintaining its historical churches, synagogues, castles, chateaus, and landmarks. I’ve often thought that the ‘new world’ could take a page or two from our older brethren when it came to honoring and revering history.
At the same time, Prague welcomes the changing faces of the ages. Somehow, modernity could never eclipse the old world architecture that makes the city one of the rarest jewels in the European Union.
Like most cosmopolitan cities, Prague is comprised of several neighborhoods. Each one has its own delectable flavor that offers the visitor its unique perspective of the city. One of the surprising things about Prague is that it is very pedestrian friendly.
We thought that we would spend a lot of time either on the subway or in a taxi, but you can easily get around the city center on foot. The more commercial areas, that is, the ones most frequented by tourists are:
Hi Renee……………Your post definitely makes me want to visit Prague. Great photos.
Thanks, Nancie! Please try to visit there….if even for one day!

Great photos! I hate winter but I really felt like visiting Prague at this time after seeing the photos. It’s such a beautiful city and I know why its captured your heart. Great beer too!
Isn’t it funny how some locales move you depending on the season? There was something mystical and magic about Prague during the winter. I may feel entirely different (but still in a good way) about the city had I visited during the summer. BTWt…..I hate winter too!
Great post and excellent photos. I have not been to Prague for 25 years and after reading your post, I think I need to get back there soon.
Go for it! You are long overdue, my friend!

It was like we walked through Prague…thanks!
You are so welcome, thank you for stopping by to enjoy them!
I just found your blog via Atlanta Bloggers meetup and so happy to see another Atlanta travel blogger. 🙂
You definitely make me want to go to Prague now. The pictures are so amazing!
I’m so excited to meet you! It’s lovely to have travel blog friends worldwide, but extra special when they are local. Yes, Prague is a definite must see….you should go!

The photo of Little Quarter Square in Mala Strana is one of the reasons I love continental Europe so much.
There is a bend in the street in Amsterdam that is also on the tram route and it has period architecture. These sights are so pleasant somehow that I just want to stare and stare.
We are so on the same page about that! It’s one of those visions that leave you standing in awe….you have to pinch yourself to believe that you are actually there witnessing it. I’m right there with you, brother!
Prague looks amazing! Simply love all the buildings! Prague is definitely on the top of my travel list!
On coming back to read you blog again I realised what high quality your photos are.
As a photographer, I have to ask – what camera do you use?
Gee, thanks David! We’ve used several cameras over the years….but for Prague….we used an Olympus D-510 Zoom Camedia 2.1 mp digital camera.
My boyfriend is Jewish, and I know it’s kind of corny but he wants to bring me to this Jewish quarter! We are going to Prague next month and I’m so excited. He told me that the whole place is so beautiful, but with these photos you posted, I have proven that it is definitely picturesque.
Great photos, I was once in Prague but only for a day. I would sure like to go there for alittle more time.

I was thinking of visiting Prague to see their collection of Mucha paintings, but i realise now that there is lots of other stuff worth checking out too! Great photos, really inspiring me to make the trip over there soon.

Prague is an amazing city and I spent way too little time when I originally went there. I’ve always hoped to go back some day. Thanks for sharing.
