Prague is like a living fairytale. Lovers all over the world are in a hurry to Paris, but dreamers, poets, eternal children, will be always be attracted by Prague! And with every passed second they fall more and more in love with this beautiful city.
Prague has fairy tales for all tastes. Do you want to plunge into the eerie magic of the Leo Perutz and Franz Kafka novels? Go to the Jewish quarter, where, behind a stone wall, live the wisdom of synagogues, and legends, legends, legends ... About the Emperor Rudolph, the banker Maizel and Esther, his beautiful his wife. About the wise Rabbi Loewe and the book “Sifirot”. It seems that every stone there is philosophical.
Or do you like castles, palaces, churches and cathedrals better? Rise your head and there it is: The Royal palace Hradcany with its majestic Gothic Saint Vitus cathedral on a high hill surrounded by ramparts. Renaissance palaces, baroque curls of the Virgin Mary church, the silence of Strahov monastery, steep streets running from castle hill, tiny houses attached to the fortress wall. Every house is unique and for each you have a desire to settle down to grow roses in tiny gardens. Ladders, frescoes, coats of arms, quiet alleys, iron lamps, the gold of leaves underfoot. Or are you inspired the most when watching the slow moving waters of a river? Go to the Karlov bridge, guarded by time-darkened stone saints. It's said they can fulfill wishes, and each has its own specialization. Sun spots are playing on the quiet surface of the Vltava river, a flock of swans gracefully accepts food, the watermill wheel is slowly rotating. Ah! You're more of a gourmet person! Fine! Cafes and restaurants – you can find lots and lots of them in Prague. Sizzling meat with herbs, dumplings, and crispy fried potatoes exude their dizzying aroma! Want to drink it with beer? There's plenty of beer, light or dark, golden, foamy, fresh and incredibly tasty.
It seems that everywhere you go in Prague you open a curtain to some perfect fairytale scene. Prague's beauty and flair will forever remain in your memory.
