Prague isn’t just a city, but an entity of some kind. – Sezin Koehler
I always liked to believe that the popularity of a city depends on the amount of colour there can be found, and Prague definitely seconds that. Not only didn’t I find any darkish buildings, I also found the atmosphere so friendly, making it very understandable why people from all over the globe come to experience the city of 100 spires. That’s it. Prague isn’t something to just see, one must experience it to understand the beauty.
Listed 6th in Lonely Planet’s top cities to visit in 2016, Prague had been on my list for a long time already. The ultimate opportunity finally came when I had three days off and my parents where driving around the city with their campervan, making it irresistible to book some cheap flight tickets. And God, was it worth it.
Eventually I just spent approximately 60 hours in the Czech Republic, but I loved every second of it. Prague in August means hot summer nights (I had 30 degrees Celsius every day!) and the whole city flourishing in greens and all shades of orange. I must admit the amount of tourists was crazy, with especially tons of Koreans wandering through the narrow streets. I don’t blame them though, a city like Prague is definitely worth a 12 hour flight.
