This Christmas was a weird year for our household. Christmas was very low key o real Christmas tree, no lights on the house and no presents around the small artificial tree, How can these things happen? Well, the hubster was unable to come home for the holiday this year. So, if the Christmas spirit won’t come to me I will go to it. I really wanted to find a place that really had all the Christmas I could soak in.
Our original plans fell through so I was desperate to find a spot for our rendezvous. I was at a loss, Pairs, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Moscow? Nope, no and no. SO, where to go? We chose Prague. We have never been there, didn’t speak the language didn’t really know much about it, so why not? It’s know as the Art Nouveau capital of Europe and did not disappoint. Most of the buildings are painted lovely shades of yellow, blues, greens and pink. Exteriors are adorned with fancy trim and some even have statues.
It was everything I had hoped for cold, snowy and Christmasy. The city was old world Europe. With cobblestone streets twists and turns and all the streets all seemed to bring you back to Old Town Square. Prague is very walkable city and we boy did walked it, everyday. The view from our hotel was right in the heart of the old square across from the famous Astronomical Clock and main hub for the annual Christmas market. Looking forward to going back, oh Yes!
