[Prague, Czech Republic] In Prague: A Monastery, An Ancient Castle, and Some Music on the Islands

Across the River Vltava, another part of Prague was waiting to be discovered. The tram to Pohorelec transported us to a new world altogether, a part of the city that was even lovelier than the one we had already explored. A Gorgeous Day. Prague, Czech Republic.   Strahov Monastery and Mala Strana: A visit to the ancient Strahov Monastery and its surroundings were a great start to our day.

[Prague, Czech Republic] In Prague: An Evening Along the Vltava

After a busy day exploring the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter in Prague, we spent the evening by the riverside. Bridge across the River Vltava. Prague, Czech Republic.   An Evening by the River: Our stroll along the banks of the Vltava had something for everyone. Junior was engaged in tram-spotting; “cute” red trams passed by every now and then, leaving him squealing with excitement. B was drawn to the architecture of the various buildings in the area; he clicked pictures of quirky buildings like the Dancing House.

[Prague, Czech Republic] In Prague: The Bustling Old Town and the Tranquil Jewish Quarter

A birthday celebration in Prague was a dream come true! I was on cloud nine, perhaps even ten. Of course, the idea instantly got a BIG stamp of approval (from me :)). B, Junior, and I set off on a long weekend trip to the capital of the Czech Republic, eager to ring in my birthday in style. The Pretty Old Town Square. Prague, Czech Republic. Although the Charles Bridge and the immense Prague Castle complex are its most well-known attractions, Prague is also home to other gems like the historical Jewish Quarter, the tranquil surroundings of the Strahov Monastery, and the picturesque neighborhood of Malá Strana or Lesser Town.
