Praha, CZ

I'm off to Prague, CZ (Praha) with the lovely Lee and Laura. This city is unarguably one of my favorite cities in the world. (I went on a school trip prior.) Filled with an amazing history, kind people, and incredible sites I am glowing with excitement to return.

The safety instructions on Sky Europe were slightly disturbing.
In case of an emergency, please place baby in floatable coffin.

They had to ask the flight attended how it worked, of course.

If you appreciate beer, head to Prague. You won't find anything like this in the states.

Holiday season in Prague.
The Old Town Square
During the holiday season, Prague's Old Town Square is booming with traditions of all sorts.

Christmas ham for 100 Kč/gm (about $.06/gm) anyone?
Check out the stud in the background.

Astronomical Clock
aka Prague Orloj
This clock is very cool.
The Astronomical Dial represents the positions of the sun and moon.
Hourly, "The Walk of the Apostles" performs.
As well as a calendar dial with medallions representing the months.

My boyfriends.

The friend I made at our hostel.

You might want to wear a helmet when riding down the escalator to the metro. I have never seen on this steep!

The Charles Bridge
The main connection between the old town and the rest of the city.
Hopping to the other side, you'll find the beautiful Prague castle as well as many other great discoveries.

Walk down from the Prague Castle.

I'll let you use your imagination.
