You know, I have traveled a lot, but I know for a fact that you've traveled much more than me. I also know that you have some taste... so when you say that you like Prague, I'm still baffled. I could totally do without it, and the rest of the country as well. I just don't get it. I am so bewildered by that city's fame as a destination that I'm tempted to go back yet again just to see if I'm missing something. To me it's like the other Venice.
true - but I've been going there since before it was so crowded, and like italy, I always go off season.
you have to admit it is a beutiful city - full of cool buildings and art, even in very unexpected places. I am also a big fan of 1920's archetecture, and there is a lot of it standing in prague. one of my favorite places in the world is a corner in the city with a medieval building, a renasanince building, and 3 buildings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries on the same corner. I love that shit.
also, for a weekend, I can eat czech food - the beer, the bread dumplings, the gulash. wouldn't want to live there, but a few days work.
