48 Postcards from Prague
The day I arrived in Prague, it was sweltering hot – I’m talking temperatures nearing 90 degrees. Even my Airbnb host said this weather was really out of the ordinary. Nevertheless I grabbed my camera and headed out to discover for myself what everyone seemed to love about Prague!
I don’t think I’ve ever taken more photos in one day than I did during that first day in Prague! The city is a feast for the architecturally inclined. Nearly every building is adorned with intricate facades: think baroque-style life-size sculptures, romanesque columns and enormous iron balconies. One building might have 10 sculptures lining its roof, or sitting atop the main entrance door. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were thousands upon thousands of these in the entire city! What’s astonishing to think about is the fact that all of these were created purely by craftsmen and artisans, without the aid of computers or modern technology.
There were so many things I loved about Prague – the incredible views, the candy colored buildings, the incredible affordability (hello $19 grocery bill!), the local treats known as Trdelniks. So, here we have my favorite forty eight postcards from my trip, categorized into five sections : Old Town Square, Old Town neighborhood, the Charles Bridge, New Town neighborhood, and Malá Strana neighborhood.
