The architecture looks like castles, the food is delicious, the night life is ridiculously fun and there are so many beautiful sites to see! The entire weekend I felt as if I was in a fairy tale or a really good dream never wanting to wake up!
The five of us definitely made the most of our (way too short) weekend in Prague. As John Lennon once said, "Time you enjoy wasting was not wasted." Here's a look at how we spent our weekend in Prague:
Charles Bridge: We visited the Charles Bridge multiple times because it connected our hostel to the Old Town Square. Commissioned by King Charles IV in 1357, Prague's most stunning bridge spans 16 arches and is lined with 30 Baroque statues of religious figures. We walked across it several times including the first night we arrived and early in the morning (6:30 a.m. to be exact) in order to watch the sunrise from the bridge.
I can't wait to return because I know there is so much I still have yet to explore! I fell in love with Prague over the weekend and wouldn't mind someday in my life calling it home. The Czech Republic is my favorite country I have visited so far while studying abroad and I am thankful I was able to travel there with some of my best friends from the program. Cora, Clare, Kesley, Kody and I will return someday; we're already planning our Reunion Trip!
