“A View From The Top”. Prague, Czech Republic

When my sister and I go on road trips I am always the one planning it. I take care of the transportation, hotel and information about the place we travel to. I am a tour guide and lead the way, she follows. My sister always tells me that every time she checks afterwards what is worth seeing at certain place, we ended up seeing it all and because of that, she lets me boss her around and drag her everywhere I want.

This year everything has changed. For the first time I was the one visiting her. She was the one planning every detail of our road trip. I had to follow. I followed gladly.
First part of her plan was Polish Mountains, Tatra (which you can see in previous posts). Second part was…Prague.

My sis visited Prague a few times before and was very excited to someday take me there. She could not wait to see my reaction to the gorgeous views of Prague. Someday finally came and we were on our way.

Like a good host she did ask me if there is anything I would like to see. I did have one place in mind. As a huge movie fan I wanted to see the view of the bridges, like I have seen in many movies that were shot in this beautiful city. Everything else, I trusted her judgment. She was not sure where the spot with the view of the bridges was, but she was determined to find it and take me there.

My sister turned out to be great and very knowledgeable guide. She came very prepared and knew a lot about the city and it`s history. If she didn`t know something, she would whip out a guide book she brought along and simply read from it. I was very impressed and happily went wherever she told me to go. She allowed me to take time with photos and patiently waited, while I went on a photo rampage.

The city made a huge impression on me. I felt like I am in a different, magical,Β  fairy world with castles and gorgeous small streets.Β  The views were breathtaking. It really did feel like you are back in time hundreds of years. The atmosphere of the whole city: old architecture, art, new times – combined beautifully. No weird buildings destroying the spirit of the city with it`s strange, too modern look. Everything: old and new, fits perfectly together, as one. I fell in love just like my sister did.

Now I know why she came back there as many times as she did.
And we did find the view I wanted. The trip was a total success, Thanks to great planning on my sister`s part.
