Travelling opens your heart and mind like nothing. It is one of those investments that will stay with you for a lifetime. The joy of looking at a city for the first time and the way it takes your breath away is something that one must experience. Prague is one of those cities that you will always carry in your heart, a memory that you will always look back upon. A city engulfed in history and architecture that is mesmerizing. It is amazing how a city grows through years becoming a cosmos that attracts thousands of people every year from across the globe to come to experience the melange of culture that it has to offer. Me and Mr. H took a trip to Prague and came back with tons of memory, bohemia crystal, and photos to boot. I love photographs and Mr. H is more of look and enjoy kind of person and between the two of us we balance (sometimes Mr. H unwillingly) our travels. I have taught him the importance of capturing memories of the camera and he has taught me the importance of sometimes just standing still and enjoying a moment.
This bridge though does not most popularly appear on the things to do in Prague, but for me and Mr. H, this bridge just made us stop and stare. With the beautiful gothic baroque architecture and the stunning view of Vltava River, this place just beckons people.
This historic bridge crosses the Vltava River and its construction started in the year 1327 and finally finished at the beginning of the 15th century. At one point in history, this used to be the only way to cross the river between Prague Castle and Old town. There are 30 statues and statuaries in barque style these are replaced ones, the original had to be placed to protect the bridge. This bridge has a breath-taking view of the castle. All though you can imagine the popularity of this building attracts hoards of people and getting the perfect shot may be difficult but do visit this bridge to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city and to take in the beauty of the place.
The building in the Jan Palach Square in its neo-renaissance since its opening in 1885 it has been a center of art and music. It hosts the famous Prague Spring International Music Festival. This magnificent forms a stunning background, with its magnanimity and intricate design this building is surely an instagrammers true delight.
The Astronomical Clock
This clock with its colors is absolutely gorgeous. It is a medieval astronomical tower and was first installed in 1410 making this the third-oldest astronomical tower and the oldest clock that is still operating. I could not take my eyes off the marvel and as you can imagine no one else. Full of tourist it was completely choc-a-blocked but we strategically managed the shot.
John Lennon Wall
This wall stands here since the 1980s filled with John Lennon inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from the Beatle’s songs. This wall has a strong history of fighting for everything that is right in this world continues to remain a symbol of love and peace. The wall has undergone years of change and the original painting now lost between layers of paint. This colorful wall forms a stunning background and a beautiful piece of art.
It is castle complex in Prague and was built in 9th century. As per the Guinness world book of records, this castle is the largest ancient castle in the world. This castle complex is absolutely gorgeous with its baroque style architecture.
This city absolutely took our breath away, we fell in love with it so much that we plan to a trip back soon, just to revel in its glory. I hope you enjoyed my photographs from Prague and if you ever visit Prague and take photographs here send them to me and I will put up your creations (obviously under your name) in my gallery.
