Prague (or Praha or Prag) was on the bucket list for a long time. To tell the truth, a japanese manga, called Monster (by Urasawa Naoki), made Prague became one of our wanted destination. After a few years of longing, at last we had the opportunity to visit this gorgeous city last Christmas.

What makes Prague so special is its long history. It has been through many eras, wars, and revolutions. The little damage from World War II allowed most of its historic buildings and architecture stay in its true form. It's really a good place to learn the history of architecture, since you can find different kind of buildings from different era, such as Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Art Nouveau, and so on.

The whole city is actually quite big, but the main attractions located near each other, and makes it easier to explore. Its rich cultures also makes the city feels so lively and there're also a lot of interesting details to be found.

Despite of massive tourism (which makes this city quite expensive), Prague became our favorite city. Visiting Prague during Christmas also allowed us to experience their Christmas Market. And the best part is it stayed open during the Christmas! (in Germany, Christmas Market only open until Dec 24th)

It might be a little bit late, but Merry Christmas anyway...
