Prague, Czech Republic (May 2018)

Prague generously took me back in time as structures dating over ten centuries back still stood erect and majestic. Exploring the city by foot was preferable, as every corner was adorned with intricate ornamentation, telling unfamiliar stories about kings, queens, artists, gypsies, all distant characters I’ve only come to know in books and movies. A couple of main points of interest: Old Town Square. Crowded … Continue reading Prague, Czech Republic (May 2018)
