Photo Essay: Golden Prague in Black and White

It was supposed to be a quick little trip to find out what Europe offers before my winter trip to Northern and Central Europe in early December 2012. I have been to Prague twice when I was a kid, each time for a summer holiday. I had positive memories, but what I experiences this winter- charmed me, took my breath away and made me feel so special.

Prague has turned out to be more beautiful than I though and remembered it.  What attracted me the most is that at every step I found little pieces of historical European cities I have travelled to – the streets of Barcelonaviews from the bridge like Paris, narrow streets and pastel from Lisbon and delicious food from Poland. All in one place!

The capital of Czech Republic is extremely diverse, locally very modern, mixed in style, where you can hear the languages of tourists from all over the world. Green delights, architecture and the magnitude theaters, galleries and exhibitions.

It was 24th of November, I took my camera with me, walked down the streets of Prague and couldn’t take my eyes off the scenery I could see. Here are some photos of Golden Prague I took.
