Prague - the gothic beauty
It is fair to say that Prague is one of the most evocative cities in the world, right up there with Paris, Rome and Venice in the romantic stakes.
The image it conjures up is one of Gothic castles, Renaissance houses, gold plated bridges, music in the background as enchanted visitors look one way then another with breathless awe.
Yes, it’s that sort of city. And by virtue of its beauty it does bring with it a few problems, not least of which signs of commercialism geared to the ever increasing number of tourists. Still. With this in mind it is one of Europe’s places to see before you die.
Enjoy the Gothic beauty, the great beer, the fiery people which after some 30 years of Democracy have found so many outlets to unleash their creativity and lust for life.
