Prague

Prague.

Recently, we ventured off to explore Eastern Europe and the spellbinding city of Prague. Prague is the capital and the largest city of the Czech Republic. With its cobble streets, beautiful architecture, and old-world charm intertwined with cool restaurants, bustling shopping districts and nightlife, Prague is a truly enchanting destination. We delved into the rich history by visiting the Baroque churches, Old Town Square, as well as the Jewish Quarter where we visited the Old Jewish Cemetery, the largest in Europe. In the heart of Prague, you will find the Old Town Square, home to the Old Town Astronomical Clock, the world-famous technical miracle from the 15th century.
