Prague is a Fairytale

Prague is a Fairytale

Built up by so many of my friends and fellow travel bloggers, Prague was another city that I had high expectations for. I was worried that it would end up disappointing me, as Amsterdam did the week before, but from the moment I stepped foot in the Old Town, I felt like I was constantly walking around with my mouth wide open.

Prague. Is. Gorgeous.

Like, jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

Now I know that people say that all the time, but seriously, I’ve never been anywhere before that made me feel as though I was on the set for Disney’s next big movie. It’s hard to put Prague into words, and after thinking about it long and hard, the only way I can properly describe it is to say it makes you feel as though you’re in a fairytale.

Don’t believe me? Have a look for yourself…

Here’s a look at my favorite fairytale moments from Prague:

Enjoying the views from Old Town Square’s Town Hall.

The romantic orange rooftops span as far as the eye can see.

Prague-fairytale-6

Wandering around the Old Town Square is just as picturesque from the ground as it is from above.

Prague-fairytale-5

Each and every building  is covered in intricate details– you really need to stop and examine them up close or you may miss something.

Prague-fairytale-9

Is there any animal more fairytale-like than swans? I don’t think so!

Prague-fairytale-8

Swans will actually gather along the banks of the Vltava River where families love to feed them.

Prague-fairytale-4

Romantic love lock-covered bridges spanned across small canals.

Prague-fairytale-7

Prague’s oldest market, Havelské Tržiště dates back to 1232, and looks straight out of a children’s book.

Prague-fairytale-10

Seeing marionettes everywhere, which have a long history here, had me thinking of Pinocchio.

 Doesn’t it just look like Rapunzel should be up in those windows?

    I absolutely loved Prague too when I went but it was such a long time ago and I think it would be great to go back and re-live the magic – the European place that most made me feel like I was on a Disney set was Slovenia – also a stunning place!
