A Puppet Paradise in Prague

Prague, Czech Republic Prague, Czech Republic Prague, Czech Republic is another destination I had heard about, but never expected to visit in 2014. My European adventure through eastern Europe landed me in Prague, one of the most beautiful (and one of my favorite) cities I visited on my trip. It wasn’t just the abundance of gothic style buildings, castles, Czech beer, or Czech puppets and marionettes that made me fall in love with Prague. It’s more than that. The vibrant colours, the swans floating below Charles Bridge, the smiles of passing locals and visitors, and the laid back culture of the city are enough reasons to love Prague.

Prague, Czech Republic Prague is known as a shoppers paradise with a mecca of locations selling fares from high end clothing, cultural hand-made products, puppets, bohemian crystal, to black and white photos. If shopping isn’t you thing, then the abundance of restaurants, cafes, and eateries sell a wide variety of Czech delicacies from fried cheese and chips to dumplings. If food isn’t your passion either, then you might enjoy sipping your way around Prague on a warm afternoon in the sun. The Czechs are world famous beer brewers–the home of Pilsener and Budvar. If you are more interested in history then you can learn about the many Bohemian kings at St. Vitus Cethedral, visit the Jewish ghetto, or look around the museum of communism. Last but not least, you’ll never forget Prague if have the opportunity to watch one their famous original and unique Marionette puppet  productions. Prague, Czech Republic

  1. Prague is such a beautiful city! I went a few years ago now and just loved all the crystal and glass work 🙂

      • Well, next month we’re planning a weekend gettaway to Buzios, a beach city in Rio state, and on december we’re going to New York to spend Christmas time with my sister and her family who lives there. It will be the first time my mom will visit New York, so we’re making big plans for this trip. : )

      • That’s exciting! New York at Christmas time is fabulous, especially if you are spending it with loved ones. I am sure your mom will have an amazing time (especially with you planning the trip).

  2. Prague is one of the most beautiful places on the continent. I used to live there before moving to Berlin, and it was glorious. It still is. Especially Charles Bridge, looking from the castle down, and in the old Jewish Area. Did you manage to see any of the Black Light Theatre productions. Very entertaining!
