“If European cities were a necklace, Prague would be a diamond among the pearls” – Anynymous. My dear readers, at times, it is the best to start a post with a quotation.
It was the summers of 2013, and we found ourselves hitting the autobahn to Prague.
Here is Prague through the lens of our iPhone camera.
From Romanesque to Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neo-Renaissance, Neo-Gothic, Art Nouveau, Cubist, Neo-Classical, and Ultra-Modern, Prague completes the full circle in its architectural offerings (source Wikipedia).
I have no words to describe the beauty of architectural richness of Prague. Yes, we did dare to capture but only a miniscule part of it through our camera.
Few visitors, standing in an extremely long queue on the Charles Bridge, informed us that rubbing our palms against this painting on the bridge would bring us good luck. So we too tried the same. Why avoid getting luckier? 😉
Even the Cafes look so exciting.
Apart from enjoying our evenings in the Hard Rock Cafe, we relished our meals in various Vegan restaurants in the city.
Last but not the least, what caught our attention were statues the cross-roads and the decorative horses.
Also, it was only in Prague, where we loved unwinding ourselves to a super-luxe-and-relaxing massage at the Beer Spa that was located bang opposite to our hotel.
(My husband was already glowing with just a thought of being immersed in beer tub, even though it was a couple of hours left for us to take the Beer bath).
It was quite an experience, which we loved so much that we bought many home-spa-beer-products from a shop called Manufaktura in Prague. (nice shop with a huge range of home-spa items)
I think there is no better way than to end this post also with a quotation,
“In Rome the statues, in Paris the paintings, and in Prague the buildings suggest that pleasure can be an education”- Caleb Crain, Necessary Errors.
I look forward to enjoying our next visit to Prague (this time in winters) again to get educated in detail about the various styles of architecture.
Thank your readers! I hope that you liked reading this post.
