Prague is a very affordable destination, I think I spent half of my planned budget and that was with eating out for most of my meals. I visited in late September which normally should be a great time but it just so happened that they were experiencing an unusually cold fall. Prague is a mystical city with endless possibilities. This popular travel destination is filled with cobbled streets, churches, architecture, great food and entertainment. I was totally drawn to the gothic beauty that surrounded me and the foggy days made it even more magical. My first day there I wandered around for hours in awe of the old world beauty.

The Astronomical clock is a huge attraction in Prague. People gather around for 20 - 30 minutes waiting for the little sculptures to come and dance around on the hour. The four sculptures represent vanity, greed, death and pleasure, the biggest concerns back in 1410. Instead of rewarding the artist who made this beautiful piece of art they gouged his eyes out so that he would never be able to recreate the clock for anyone else, ouch. Its amazing not only that this clock is still around but the fact that it still functions perfectly.
There is plenty to see in this great city and I promise you will not regret the visit. Have you been to Prague? What was your favourite part?
