Prague | Travel Diaries

I have to admit, when I decided to take a trip in the summer of 2012 to Prague in the Czech Republic I was totally blown away by its beauty. It was such a pleasant surprise. Prague is a culturally rich city that has a very distinctive eastern Europe vibe mixed in with the west. The blended architecture that varies from beautiful Baroque mansions to soviet era buildings captured my attention the entire trip. If you are ever in Europe, this city is a must stop for me. I can't wait o go back some day.

Enjoying a Pilsner. Did you know The Czech Republic drinks more beer than Germany and all other European countries?

Prague is my favorite city thus far in Europe. The locals were friendly, the food was excellent, the beer was cheap, and just walking around you do enough site seeing just by admiring the architecture and streets. 

When in Prague be sure to check out their hostels to stay in. Most were very affordable, safe, clean and are a great way to connect with fellow travelers your age. MY first hostel experience was in Prague and the sense of community and reliability on your host got me hooked. 

I've got tons of footage from Prague HERE on my youtube channel 

Cheers to travel!
