PRAGUE | 1

I spent my birthday this December in Prague, and now I'm in love with the city — such beautiful architecture and fascinating history!

 There was a big Christmas Market covering the main city square in Prague, plus several other smaller ones. Of course we had to visit them all.

 Prague is one of the only major European cities that was virtually untouched during the war, so all the old streets and buildings are still there.

 We stopped by the river to watch these swans — they just wandered up to people with no fear.

 At the Christmas Market! We tried Trdelnik (sort of like a stretched-out cinnamon roll) from a stand like the one you can see here. It was awesome.

 Inside the St. Vitus gothic cathedral. It was cool to see such good examples of such different architectural styles all in one city.
