PRAGUE: The City of a Hundred Spires

One of the European cities that I would like to visit again, Prague is a quaint and romantic place in the most unique way. It was a fun and beautiful place to be, one that would bring out the childish happiness in you in a way. With great architecture and pretty scenic surroundings, it's no wonder that this is a place that many have seen and loved!

I started my exploration of Prague from the Old Town Square. This area is already a must-see place in itself - during the day, you'll see the horse-drawn carriages and vintage cars roaming the streets. And in the evening, the place lights up with the towers of the Týn Church, a striking part of the scenery, making you feel as if you're in a fairytale. Around the square, you can find the Kinsky Palace and St. Nicholas Church, while at the center is where the Jan Hus Monument stands. The medieval astronomical clock is also here, so a trip here would definitely be worth your time! (See what I did there?)

From the Old Town Square, it'll be pretty easy to make your way to Charle's Bridge. A few minutes of walking, and you'll find yourself to making your way to one of the busiest areas in your itinerary. There are a lot of tourists here, and that's the reality. But that thought aside, the Charle's Bridge is in fact a great vantage point to see how scenic the city is. As you walk along the (crowded) bridge, you'll see a lot of statues by each side - all different, but just as detailed as the other.

Other places that are good to check out while walking around are the Powder Tower and Municipal House. By late afternoon or early evening, you can head to Wenceslas Square, and there you can enjoy some Old Prague Ham. For dessert, you can indulge in Trdelník, which is basically a rolled donut in a shape of a cone with some soft serve ice cream inside!
