The more I travel, the more I realize the extent of what we (as Europeans) are taking for granted. While this conversation can be an entire socio-economic essay, this time I’ll rather stick to one aspect. Historical heritage. Especially the architecture of our cities.

 

 

These photos were taken in early autumn 2017. (Wow, it took me more than a year to post…) It really feels like a few weeks ago. We took a stroll at Mala Strana down to Kampa – my favourite parts of Prague. Make sure you visit and immense yourself in the atmosphere. I’d recommend travelling off-season (hard to think of off-season months in Prague because the number of tourists is growing steadily. Maybe April and October.

Visit IF Cafe at Werichova vila – they have a great selection of cakes, snacks and the best ice-cream!

Proclaimed as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, I indeed can’t agree more. While living in Prague for several months in the last year, one can get a better picture and experience what this city has to offer.

I definitely felt safe and inspired by all of the architecture, Vltava, culture and museums. On the other hand, the important factor when deciding to move over there or not is your stage of life. Do you want to speed up your career, build something, have a calm, comfortable life? The ‘hustle’ in Prague is (almost) non-existent – which is not a bad thing. Thus I can imagine myself moving back in 20 years. πŸ™‚

 

Ohhh I already miss these views!

 

 

I experience synesthesia when perceiving or talking about cities. For example, Lisbon is yellow. London is dark violet/plum. Bratislava is grey. San Francisco is brown. And Prague is definitely gold.
