Prague | Photo Diary Part I

Prague, Czech Republic is the most beautiful city the world. Ok, so I may be biased because it’s the city I was born in, partially raised in and where I continuously visit the majority of my family. So of course I am going to brag about what an incredible city it is. I got to go back at the beginning of summer when we flew to Europe for our European adventure to Amsterdam (dutch cuisine post), London (part I and Part II), and Prague. Last on our itinerary was Prague because we were there for my cousin’s wedding and wanted to conclude our trip visiting my family.

Although I usually stay with family when I visit it was great to be able to stay in a hotel in the center of Prague. We booked a room at Hotel Meran which had the most ideal location and our room had a balcony looking out at Wenceslas Square. Every evening we enjoyed watching the sunset, sipping on wine with the euro cup games on in the background. It was a perfect way to spend the evenings after days of traveling through Europe. Since I hadn’t been back in a few years I wanted to explore the main parts of the city and show R around my city. This post is only from one day of exploring the cobblestoned streets of Prague. I ended up taking hundreds of photos that it took a while to go through and choose my favorite. It’s always fun to see your city as a tourist  =o) Here is part II =o)
