Two years ago I was flying over the Atlantic Ocean. A solo trip to Europe for a film photography workshop with a stopover in Prague. It’s been fun to relive the 48 hours I spent in this picturesque city. Other than the memory of my luggage not making it there. Until the morning I was flying on to Athens. But I’ve been fortunate in my travels for that to be a rare occurrence. I was just glad they located my suitcase!
It was wonderful to arrive in Europe this time of year for an early start to spring. During my visit the weather was in the high 20’s and I soaked it up as I wandered the cobblestone streets. Randomly finding a park that was filled with gorgeous spring blossoms that smelled amazing! Similarly the narrowest street of Prague that has a traffic light at either end as it’s too narrow to meet someone.
For two full days I walked all over the city with my camera in hand. Feeling very safe and now I have hundreds of photos of beautiful, historic buildings! I quickly fell in love with this city. Rightfully nicknamed the City of a Hundred Spires. My favorite place was Charles Bridge and being along the Vltava River in that area. I stayed in a cute, little apartment on the street that goes to the Charles Bridge. A perfect location! Because then it seemed like most anywhere I wanted to go I walked across this magnificent bridge. Old Town Square and the Prague Castle were also amazing to spend time at. There’s so much to take in!!
I’m glad it worked out to have this stopover and get a little taste of this part of Europe. If it’s not on your bucket list I highly recommend even a short visit here if you can! Hopefully someday I can go back (with my husband!) to explore more of Czech Republic!!
