Prague was my favorite city of this trip, I don’t know why, I can’t explain it. Even I was surprised since it was the last city and usually by the end of a trip one is tired of traveling and a little crankier. I had no expectations and so everything that we encountered, ate, and saw was just digested with excitement from me. We were no longer close enough to the Danube to encounter the river cruise people but the city was still bisected by the Vltava River and didn’t feel landlocked. Similar to Budapest, one side of the river was hillier than the other and each side of the river had its own distinct vibe (to me). - Sidenote: I find this is especially true in Paris.
What I noticed, and liked, about Prague is that it has a little bit of everything that I like and want in a city. Architecture from many periods, some nice green spaces, a challenging hill trail (Petrin) with fantastic views, a river (I'm a water sign), modern amenities, good public transportation, friendly people, great beer, and I could go on but you get the point. I felt right at home in Prague.
More to come tomorrow, this whole week is dedicated to Prague.
