Time to learn Czech
Allen and I are super excited...we are going to Prague on our honeymoon! Prague is the place I have dreamed about going to for years and it will happen in March! For those of you who don't know much about Prague, here a small description I found online:
"This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes, has been mirrored in the surface of the swan-filled Vltava River for more than ten centuries. Almost undamaged by WWII, Prague's compact medieval centre remains a wonderful mixture of cobbled lanes, walled courtyards, cathedrals and countless church spires all in the shadow of her majestic 9th century castle that looks eastward as the sun sets behind her. Prague is also a modern and vibrant city full of energy, music, cultural art, fine dining and special events catering to the independent traveller's thirst for adventure. It is regarded by many as one of Europe's most charming and beautiful cities."
We are going for a week and have already bought a stack of guide books to make plans about what we want to see.
Some interesting sites include:
Prague Castle (the largest castle in the world) - It includes St. George's Basilica and it one of about 2000 castles in the area.
Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock
Prague National Gallery
The Lennon Wall
The Charles Bridge
:) Can't Wait!
