Prague

I spent 3 days in Prague after coming from Berlin and I thought it was a pretty cool city. It’s kind of fairytale-like in the way the buildings are and the city is laid out. My hostel was kind of far from the center square, but it wasn’t too bad.Here’s a few of my favorite pictures.

On the free walking tour I took, this was one of the statues that our tour guide showed us. It was pretty funny because these guys actually rotated back and forth at the hips.

Next was the John Lennon Wall. I don’t remember why they called it this but it was cool anyway.

My friend Alena that I had met in London at Palmer’s Lodge met me in Prague the 2nd day I was there. She is Czech and it made it a lot easier getting around and ordering with someone who actually speaks the language. We did a pub crawl that night through Prague. The first bar on the crawl was at a bagel shop/bar and we walked in and they had a beer pong table set up. I was so excited!! We played that then a 10-on-10 game of flipcup, then headed to the rest of the bars and clubs. It was a fun night!

    Hey Nick, how are ya? Hope you well.
    Anyways, the John Lennon Wall was a symbol in the 80’s of kinda a silent protest against communists and sort of celebration of the west. There used to be a picture of John Lennon’s face on it when i was little and lyrics from Beatles songs. I think they cleaned the wall up in the late 80’s but it only took a couple of days and people wrote and draw all over it again. I’ve seen the wall about 10 times and every time it looked completely different.
    Well, good luck on your next travels. Take care. Alena x
