Prague: eye candy at its best
I ain’t gonna lie. In 2011, as I was getting ready for my European rhapsody, I had the highest expectations about Prague. Even though it is certainly not the first city you have in mind as a first-time Brazilian tourist in Europe, the capital of Czech Republic is not, by all means, a place you should skip in your travel plan. I’m talking bucket list here, you guys.
I have to say Prague delivered on its promise to leave a lasting impression. We haven’t hit it off that well from the very start, though. After a bus ride from Berlin, I was pretty tired, traveling as light as I could be which meant I’ve got a backpack and an extra suitcase. It was probably early afternoon and Prague has already wowed me (come on now, the place is breathtaking!). My partner and I were supposed to stay at this really good pricing boatel; we just had to find it on the Vltava River.
It took us a couple of hours, one unsuccessful phone call to the hotel (“it’s not a hotel, it’s a boatel”) and a lot of starvation to figure this out: we wouldn’t make it. It was already night time when we had our first proper meal in Prague: at a nightclub
After being fed, going for a walk was a life-changing experience itself there. It took us only a couple of hours to realize we’ve got ourselves an impressive destination. One look at the Prague Castle, this fantastic large and ancient complex, with all its lights on, and suddenly we’ve already been taken to this outlandish/dreamlike realm.
Prague is full of life, history, culture and natural beauty. The Dancing House, the city’s old town and its medieval astronomic clock, the St. Vitus Cathedral… And I’m just listing the main attractions. Sure you instagrammers don’t fool me. You’re going to thank me for the thousands and thousands of great pictures and even better, for the remarkable memories you’re getting per minute and not just per click. Bav se dobře!
