Walking in Prague, Czech Republic

I’ve been hearing and reading so much impressions on Prague from different people, and all of them were saying that Prague was soooo good and interesting and everything. I happened to spend a weekend in Prague and I walked it throughout. Was I that impressed?…

First of all, I must say I was really excited to visit Prague, especially to spend a weekend there! I was expecting to see the architecture that I’ve been reading about so much, I wanted to walk the cobblestone paved streets, breath in some fresh European air and just meet people and eat good local food.

What it turned out to me? Well, the only thing I remember months after that weekend is CROWDS OF TOURISTS EVERYWHERE!!! This was insane. Wherever you turn your head, you can see nothing but people, people, people…

I’m not a person who loves spending time in such a stream of people, so walking in Prague’s most famous streets was’t much of a pleasure for me.

Although, when we just left the hotel, I did see some nice scenes.

And of course, being the first time in Prague, we went to the Charles Bridge (Karlův Most). I think, it was beautiful. “I think” because I am not sure. I could not enjoy it fully since all that my eyes could catch was people’s heads. But still, got a few shots there, too.

If you look around the bridge you could probably see much more natural beauty.

I definatelly loved the nature and the architecture of Prague.

After the Charles Bridge, we went on to see more “touristic” places.

The day was finished on The Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí). There we settled down at the El Toro Negro steak bar.

And yesss, the steaks were AMAZING!

We also tried some other treats along the way.

It is worth mentioning that El Toro Negro was located right in the front of the 15th-century Astronomical Clock. Each hour it springs to life as the 12 Apostles and other figures appear and parade in procession across the clock face. A lot of people gather to see this moment.

Thank you, Prague, for being nice and welcoming. I wish you weren’t that busy with tourists at that weekend, but I enjoyed you anyways.

P.S. would not come back, but I’m glad I’ve seen you. J
