It's time for the Prague blog! This city took my heart from the moment we stepped off the bus from Berlin (which we made only by sprinting to the bus station from the metro wearing our giant backpacks. A dog may have tried to chase me at one point. I don't want to talk about it). The whole city is small enough to walk, there's a beautiful river running through it (although I guess that goes for most European cities), and the architecture is unbelievable. You'll find all types of construction, from rococo to Slavic to cubist, and the combination is stunning. 

Prague also hosts the oldest medieval castle, fried cheese as a traditional dish (that alone sold me on the place), a John Lennon wall where protesters of the communist regime wrote Beatles lyrics, a lovely astrological clock, a bar called The Beer Museum with endless types of Czech beers, and any number of surprising, offbeat, charming statues, monuments, and other structures. 

Far too many pictures follow, if you'd like to take a look!
