Prague is a fairytale

Prague is a real-life fairytale city

Prague is known for its breathtaking architecture and historical landmarks. But it’s more than just a feast for the eyes. 

When you first set foot in Prague, it's impossible to not be struck by the beauty of its architecture. The city is home to some of the most incredible buildings in the world, including the famous Charles Bridge and the St. Vitus Cathedral. The city's Old Town, with its winding streets, colorful buildings and charming squares, will make you feel like you've stepped back in time.

Prague is also a city rich in cultural heritage. It's home to countless museums and art galleries, including the National Museum and the Mucha Museum. The city is also known for its theatre and music scene, with many world-class performances taking place throughout the year.

As well, the city is home to a number of Jewish heritage sites, including the Old Jewish Cemetery, which is the oldest of its kind in Europe, and the Jewish Museum in Prague, which tells the story of the city's Jewish community over the centuries.

You can't visit Prague without trying a trdelnik.

For foodies, Prague is a culinary paradise. Visitors can indulge in traditional Czech dishes such as goulash and dumplings, or sample some of the city's many international restaurants. Make sure to try a trdelnik, a delicious rolled dough that is wrapped around a stick, then grilled and topped with a sugar and walnut mix. The city also has a thriving craft beer scene, with many local breweries and pubs to explore.

Beyond all of these cultural and historical highlights, Prague is also a city that is easy to navigate. The city is extremely bike-friendly and its public transportation system, including buses, trams and metro trains, is an excellent way to get around. A multi-day pass, available at metro stations, vending machines or the Prague City Transport (DPP) app, allows for unlimited travel. In my opinion walking could be the best option, especially in the very walkable city centre. 

Prague left a lasting impression on me and if you're looking for your next destination, I can't recommend this city highly enough. My guess is, you'll feel the same way after visiting.
