I spent last week in Krakow, Poland on business. On my return back to Zurich, I took a 2 day layover in Prague (Praha) Czech Republic. Everyone that I have ever talked to said the city's architecture is absolutely amazing.
I arrived into Prague on Friday evening. After getting settled in, I journeyed down to Old Town to see this Charles Bridge that everyone talks about.
The first tour was free (only tipped Justin). On this 3-hour walking tour we cover all the main sites and stories, including:
•Old Town Square•St. Nicolas’ Church • Powder Tower • Art Nouveau Municipal • HouseWenceslas Square • Estates Theatre (First Mozart Performance) • Astronomical Clock • Maiselova Street & Old Jewish Quarter • Karlov Most – Charles Bridge • Lennon Wall • WWII – Prague Uprising and much more
The second 3 hour tour was of the Prague Castle
• Prague Castle • St Vitus’ Cathedral • St Nicholas’ Church • Domeček Gestapo / StB Prison • Wallenstein Palace • Amazing panoramic views • St George’s Basilica • The Garden of Eden • ‘Mozart’s House’ • The Deer Moat • Novy Svět - New World Street • and much more!
I was especially amazed at this piece of art. Not very often do you see a man peeing through the back of a lion's head.
Prague and all its churches, bridges and castles were absolutely amazing. The thing that I think I found most amazing was the ability of woman to walk on cobblestone streets with 4-6 inch stiletto (I can't believed I just used that word in a sentence) heels. You think this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3fZeHYE8Ys is amazing. Trust me...it ain't got $hit on this.
I don't know if I have more respect for the woman who can walk in heels on this terrain....or for the companies that manufacture these shoes...NOW THAT'S SOME INCREDIBLE ENGINEERING.
If you are interested in seeing more pictures, feel free to check out the album. The only thing that could of made the visit to Prague better was if it was with Mandy. I miss you babe.
