If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I have been back in Australia for around 10 days. However, I still have things I want to post about my month in Europe. My time there was such a mixture of emotions for me, with many new experiences.
One of the most wonderful things I did was to travel. with my son by bus, for a 4 day visit to Prague, in the Czech Republic. Why Prague, you may be asking? The answer is because we wanted to visit a place that neither my son nor myself had been to before, so that we could discover it and make lasting memories, together. We, also, needed to find somewhere that was close enough to Berlin so that the travel was not too taxing for my recovering son but was quite different culturally and finally, was reasonably cheap to stay at. Prague, fitted the bill perfectly on paper and exceeded our expectations in reality!
The beauty of this city was totally mind blowing to me. It’s ancient buildings mostly made it through the war years with minimal bomb damage. Every corner we turned, opened up another gorgeous vista with colourful art deco buildings interspersed with dark gothic or baroque churches, towers and bridges. The fact that much of the city is built next to and around the Vlatava River definitely adds to the charm.
I intend showing you this beautifully, clean city by way of sharing some of the photos we took. Just try to keep in mind that I am not a photographer!!! Enjoy!
We had a wonderful day visiting Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the world and the very beautiful Gothic Cathedral, St Vitus which is located within the castle.
Wandering around New Town Prague took us to the more colourful and eclectic art deco buildings and away from the bohemian gothic ones.
Finally, my son took the following photo of me walking the streets of Prague! It accurately shows my awe, delight and bewilderment at the wonders I was seeing and I love it!
