Postcards from Prague


Prague is one of the most picturesque place I’ve ever been. It’s like being transported into a Disney movie with their beautiful, fairy-tale buildings.

I thought Prague Castle was the thing sticking up on the hill – nope that’s St Vitus Cathedral and it is probably the most worthwhile thing to see when you are up there. We got the Prague Castle (Circuit A) but it was all pretty boring except for the Cathedral. The palace itself were just empty old room and nothing too flash about them.

St Vitus Cathedral was one of the most beautiful cathedrals I had visited on my trip. Huge with Gothic architecture and gargoyles decorated everywhere.

Oh and I forgot to mention – segways. Seways everywhere!

Prague is a tourist city – I never saw one local during my few days here. The Old Town had only souvenir, alcohol and jewelry shops where we couldn’t even find a supermarket. Basically once you’ve been to one shop, you’ve been to them all …

The food here are tourist traps where the price was alright (compared to Switzerland and London) for average food. Just as a warning that when they say Czech dumplings, it’s not a dumpling but bread. We Asians need to show them what real dumplings are!

What you want to try is the trdelnik which is an awesome Hungarian dessert. Dough is wrapped around a stick and cooked in an open fire and then sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon and almond mix. Biting into the sweet crispy caramelised outer layer into a doughy center with sugar crystals dusting your lips.

Prague is so pretty but it was a shock to be in a city that’s filled with only tourists. Maybe I need to run away from the city center to find the locals next time.
