Prague photo essay

In recent years, Prague has become a tourist hot spot and it’s easy to understand why. Walking through the old city streets, it’s common to feel like you’ve stepped into a time machine, and the the astronomical clock and the castle (the main tourist attractions) are without a doubt beautiful. However, it was the way that Prague wears its history on its sleeve that made me fall in love with the city; in addition to the museums, there’s a multitude of monuments remembering everything from the wars to the Jewish persecution.

A lot of the buildings resemble Viennese architecture, so many films that are supposed to be set in Vienna are actually filmed in Prague.

The Astronomical Clock is one of Prague’s biggest tourist attractions.

Most of Prague's architecture was untouched by WWII, so the city still has a very classical look.
