Prague: A Fairy-Tale City

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Studying abroad has many elements of adventure to it. First, there is the actual departure from your home continent. Then, there is the opportunity to venture even further, the opportunity to explore outside of your newly settled foreign land. This past weekend, curiosity and exploration led me to Prague.

 If when you think of Europe you imagine castles, old bridges, historic medieval archways and buildings from centuries gone by, then that is Prague in a nutshell. It really is that fairy-tale place you imagine when dreaming of old European cities. 

I swear to you, magic was in the air. Not the Disney-type where forest creatures break out in song and dance. No, Prague is magical in its own way. The city seems to be torn right from a picture book where fairy dust constantly rains and (somehow) beer is given to you for free at dinner but you have to pay for water. 

And did I mention they have Starbucks...?! 

Enjoy the highlights of my weekend in this enchanting city!

Prague Castle

A cylindrical pastry sold hot with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar. They are made by wrapping dough around a wooden stick and roasting it over an open flame until it is fully cooked. These are to die for!

And of course...the many stops at Starbucks :)

I find one of the most painful things, as a photographer is feeling like you didn’t document what your eyes saw properly, and not having enough time to capture all that you want to. Prague is one of those cities where its' beauty can simply not entirely be captured on camera. I do however, hope you feel a glimpse of what I did through looking at these images!
