Whenever I revisit my photos from my Contiki trip to Prague, I sit back and think damn, I’m an excellent photographer. Not so. It’s easy to be a fantastic photographer in one of the prettiest cities I’ve ever seen.
(As a side note, I recently picked up the Canon t4i, so expect more photos and videos soon.)
Here are some of my faves!
On Canada Day, we rented paddle boats and floated down the Vltava river. It was the most fun ever.
On the Charles Bridge, touching the statue of St. John of Nepomuk and making three wishes apparently makes them come true. I’m still waiting on my gold chariot flanked by muscly Romans in loincloths, though.
One of my faves. No idea what that weird balloon is. But I love it.
This area is known as Little Venice…for obvious reasons.
Our walk back through the Castle District. I love that a Castle District exists.
Prague remained remarkably preserved after World War II. Many of these old red-roofed homes and buildings have made it through some pretty crazy stuff. This is one of the rare rooftop restaurants. I’m not allowed to tell you where it is.
St. Vitus Cathedral in all its dark glory.
The changing of the guard in Prague. I had the hots for the dude on the left. I feel like he’s staring into my soul.
The Lennon Wall. Used to tick off the communists because the Czech people would air their issues on the wall, but as soon as it was painted over by authorities, the following day Beatles song lyrics and imagery would be back in full force.
In No Man’s Land, a rather spooky amusement park area on the Czech border. During communism, the Czech people would come here for a summer retreat as they couldn’t go elsewhere.
