There’s things to love in Prague

There isn’t much I run across in my travels that I haven’t seen before in some way shape or form. But Prague managed to surprise me. I may have had some preconceived notions about what to expect from this country, but it taught me a new trick or two. For one, despite all the interesting architecture I’ve seen, Prague still had plenty that wowed me. Like the gothic sandstone St Titus Cathedral:

The simplicity and perfection of fresh mint or ginger tea, made by pouring boiling water over the fresh herbs and served with honey. Delicious!

Flower Balls for sale at the outdoor floral vendors.

Yes! Flower Balls!

Continually changing graffitti on The John Lennon Wall:

Square Water:

Beautiful old doors on every street:

and of course, Czech Glass!

but best of all…

yarn bombing in Prague

Yarn Bombing!

We’re everywhere, Crafty Friends. ;-)

    Hi J!

    You would think out of all the awesome pictures, I would love something OTHER THAN the square water bottle. But I collect weird water bottles each year, and use them until I feel their life has expired. I love that one! I also love the picture of the chec glass. So beautiful! I hope you are having a wonderful time on your trip!!

      Had a great trip, Susan and now am so glad to be back in the U.S. for the foreseeable future. As you could probably tell, I thought that square water bottle was unique and cool too. LOL! So much fun stuff to discover in this wonderful world we are so lucky to inhabit!

    My son studied for a semester in Prague, and fell in love with it!!! When he went to work in Germany for 6 months, he went back as often as he could!!! Beautiful architecture and people!!

      I’m glad to know that others were as captivated with this country as I was! How wonderful that he was able to spend so much time there. Bet he has some great photos and memories.

    Czech yarn bombs! How cool! My favorite spot was a little garden down the street from the Lennon wall, and the strangest was St. Wenceslas on top of an upside-down dead horse. I love the flower balls you saw. Your photos are great.

      Thanks Kate! Prague was a fun place to explore. I just didn’t get enough time there. St Wenceslas on an upside down horse? There must be a very interesting story about that…

        And I wanted to tell you that I really appreciate the “are you a spam robot” checker that you’re using (the math one). I don’t like the ones that are images of letters. I fail those far too often.

          Oh I love it!!! I’m really sorry I missed that. I agree with you on the letter spam checker…it annoys me to no end. Sometimes I fail several times in a row until I give up commenting in total frustration. :-)

    I love this post and all the pictures. I was luvky to visit my my Parents in a little town outside of Prague where they lived for two years. I was there last October and it was GORGEOUS! My mother has made a collection of the pictures she took of the doors in the Czech Republic during the two years she lived there. She has hundreds. I wish I could go back every year!
