A Few Quick Notes on Prague

Admittedly I knew very little about Prague before traveling there a few weeks ago; Central European styling, new EU membership and 1,000 years of history at every street corner.  That was the extent of my knowledge.

So for those of you reminiscing about a trip, those of you considering Prague as a future destination, or, if like me, you're just curious about everywhere, here are a few notes for you.   I've included links to the wikipedia pages which will provide a far better background than I ever could.

Places you HAVE to see
Charles Bridge.  It can't get much more touristy than the bridge but it's amazing to walk across something 500 years old.

VyŇ°ehrad - Hidden gem

The Hunger wall - this yielded some of our best pictures

Prague Castle - It can be confusing where the castle/palatial outcrops end and the City begins because the Castle is the largest in the world.  You'll know you're there when you have to purchase tickets to go any farther. 

I wish I had the opportunity to sit down with everyone who reads this post to reflect on the city.  It far exceeded my expectations.  The people were friendly, the food good, it's a place I'm looking forward to visiting again.

There is graffiti EVERYWHERE!  While a bit concerning when you first see it, the graffiti is not pervasive and has yielded another awesome place to go, Lennon Wall.

It's Europe, and they have great public transportation but Prague has crazy traffic.  Utilize the metro and the trams!

As for the half-marathon, it could not have gone much better.  The route, for the most part was beautiful, the weather perfect and I came in under two hours.

The more exciting post will come after I'm able to weed through the 700 or so pictures we took and get the best up in a gallery.
