We left for Prague on 10 Oct via Ceske Budejovic, which ended up being an unscheduled stop. It was pretty lucky since it s quite a nice town, with a huge town square with lots of little shops.
Arrived in Prague in the mid afternoon. After planning to come here for so long, it was kind of disappointing - apart from the English tourists here for their stag trips/weekend, the city had traded vibancy for prosperity. While I totally understand that - they got to eat! But as a tourist, I found Prague unsatisfying. Granted, there s the castle, many bridges, churches and its like any other European cities. Wheres the soul?
The hightlight, (yes, there s a highlight) is seeing Mucha s works. For those who dont know, he created Art Nouveau design and graphics. Amazing artist, esp considering his output.
May be because they dont smile...! Not sure its communism or their Germanic background!
