Trdelnik, Vltava, Karluv Most…Praha!

This cryptic title is just a couple of words in Czech that I picked up from our trip in Prague, which was my Christmas present from Thomas. Trdelnik is the name of a local specialty that they made abundantly on the Christmas market and that we loved. The Vltava is the name of the river and the Karluv most is the famous Charles bridge that goes over it. Praha is Prague in Czech…and it is one of the most beautiful cities I have visited….take a look for yourself:

View on the beautiful Castle, from the Charles bridge
View on the Vltava and bridges up from the Letna park
Tribute to Vaclav Havel, former Czech president on Wenceslas avenue
Magic Christmas market on the Old Town Square
Jewish cemetery in Josefov area
John Lennon Wall in Kampa area

Prague is really a city I recommend and I could not have hoped for a better Christmas break. The city is fantastic to walk in. You see decorated facades, beautiful houses, churches, one of the biggest castle complex in Europe, charming bridges, a lovely Christmas market, an impressive Astronomic clock, nice parks…And luckily it was not that cold when were there, so we could stay out quite a lot. The cultural life is very rich in general: on top of the Castle and the Jewish area, we also visited the museum Mucha (a famous painter), the museum Kafka (Czech writer) and went to a classical music concert in the amazing Municipal House.

Happy 2012 everybody!
