Prague

Some cities are just magical. After a recent discussion on our podcast about the spectacular City of Prague, I thought I should probably share some insight from my last trip there.

It’s been many year’s since I was last in Prague, so I admit to having to do a little extra investigating to update my picks, and now it just makes me want to return! As the capital city of the Czech Republic, Prague is bisected by the Vltava River, nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires”, known for its Old Town Square, Gothic churches, medieval Astronomical Clock, and pedestrian Charles Bridge. It feels like walking through a Fairytale land in some places, with reminders of history everywhere you go. It’s little wonder this City has become such a major tourist destination over the past decade.
