The Bohemian Prague

Romantic. Mysterious. Bohemian. Three words I will use to describe the capital city of Czech Republic. There is something about the city of Prague that gives you the feeling you are walking straight out a 1920s movie, especially with the barely-touched centuries old architectures of the city. Without sounding like a Lonely Planet guide book,  I wanted to share my day trip in this incredible city. I started my day strolling around the Mala Strana district. As I made my way up to the Prague Castle complex, I passed many shops selling souvenirs like absinthe, gems, etc. The Prague Castle is positioned in the high region of the city where it offers amazing 360 degree view of the city from top. I could not even be bothered with the ridiculously cold and windy weather that day because the view. Wow. I have never seen such beautiful city. It was exactly like the background for Disney's medieval movies. Again, wow. Then, I thought to myself, what could be better than this? The answer directly came in the form of a bowl of warm beef goulash and Czech's traditional food, roasted rabbit and stuffed duck breast in wine sauce with assorted pancakes, bread, red white cabbages and my favorite steamed potato dumpling! It was delicious and perfect for the weather. After a glass of Pilsner Urquell beer (the Czech's beer), I continued my journey walking along the iconic Charles Bridge which connects the Mala Strana and Old Town. The Old Town is home to some of the points of interests in Prague like the astronomical clock and some high end boutiques. In the evening, I went for the boat trip cruising down the river accompanied with a cup of tea and warm slice of chocolate cake. As the city's lights are on, I saw my parents cuddled, how I wish I had someone with me. Prague, I'm in love.
