The Prague Spring

I can finally deliver a more interesting post! I'm just back from a trip to Prague with some friends from uni and it was absolutely fantastic. I'm going again in August for a week with school friends and i had such a good trip this time that i'm really very excited about going back in the summer. I spent Sunday-Wednesday in Prague, saw most of the sites and enjoyed the Pilsner Beer.

The city is beautiful, so much to see and the buildings are so unique. The Jewish Quarter is filled with history and the synagogues are amazing, and the Old Town, though becoming progressively tourist led is still fantastic. The Charles Bridge is great to walk across and it brings you to Prague castle which is maybe a little overrated but has brilliant views of the city. Prague is nowhere near as cheap as people make it out to be, compounded by the fact that the GBP's collapse has meant that a pound is only worth 30 Czech Koruna while 6 months ago it was worth 40!

Here's some of my photos

Prague is so beautiful! I can't wait to go back this summer! Glad you had fun there. And, yeah, I got there while it was 38 to £1.
