Highlights of Europe: Prague

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite places I visited in Europe this summer: Prague, Czech Republic. We stopped there on our way from France to Poland, and it was an excellent way to break up the long bus ride. We arrived in Prague pretty late at night, but still got up bright and early in the morning to make the most of our time there. We explored the city for about 4-5 hours ~ but many of us wished we could be there for 4 or 5 days! Nonetheless, we still got a good taste of Prague in the time that we did have.

The buildings in Prague are beautiful with their unique architecture, their different pastel colors, and their distinctly Eastern European look. When I was there, the city's cobblestone streets and sidewalks were slippery from the on-and-off rain, but it only added to the charm and delight of our visit. There were lots of cute shops with unique (often handmade and hand-painted) items, and lots of restaurants and coffee shops as well. Prague is also home to the Infant of Prague, and we were able to visit the church that houses Him and even attend Sunday Mass there.

I fell so in love with this city so fast and I will definitely be going back someday (and for a longer visit)! And now I'll let my photos do the rest of the talking...
