My Prague Blog

Oh my my, it sure is going to be difficult to top our time in Prague. What an incredible city. Prague is inexpensive, clean, serves fantastic food and is one of the few European cities to remain unscathed following the first and second World Wars. We were very fortunate to have stayed in an awesome apartment in a great location, right next to the St. Charles Bridge. It also had 25 foot gold-decorated ceilings, tons of floor space and a very classical feel-- all for $100/night! Only in Prague.

Crow really embraced the cultured vibe our flat was giving off as he can be seen here reading up on the fundamentals of Czechoslovakian Oral Surgery from our apartment's study.

During our first day we took a tour of Prague Castle, which is currently the largest castle in the world! It was an incredible site. Construction on the castle took over 600 years as it began in 1333 and was finally completed in 1989.

The Herculean Gates guard the entrance to Prague Castle and face Germany, the country's most prominent historical adversary.

Once inside, the castle boasts a breathtaking view since it is perched on a hill overlooking Old Town Prague.

The Castle forms a perimeter around St. Vitus Cathedral which stands tall above the surrounding fortress.

We also stopped at the Peklo Monestary Brewery next to the castle. The entire brewery was located inside of a hill which gave it a very ancient feel. And of course, the beer was delicious.

One of our favorite stops was Hemingway's cocktail lounge which served all kinds of crazy concoctions, including this Old Fashioned--- served out of an actual Hemingway novel!

One of our last stops in Prague was the John Lennon Wall, which is a 100 meter wall covered in graffiti. The graffiti quotes included many lyrics sang by the Beatles and other "words of wisdom."
