Prague part 1 (for tourists)

pr2I can’t really write anything for tourists. Usually tourists travel in big organized groups or with a detailed book guide of the place they are visiting.

Tourists have already their source of information and they rather prefer to go for the certain than for the uncertain.

This post will be only a small photo gallery dedicated to one of the most beautiful european city: Prague, capital of the Czech Republic.

In my next posts I will provide my usual tips for a budget experience in Prague (and Czech Rep) and some off the beaten track suggestion.

Meanwhile I hope you can enjoy my ‘touristic’ Prague 🙂

Bran: the (NOT) Dracula’s castle

Long story about Dracula and which one is the real castle and who really was this person.

Ljubljana

2013-03-23 11.29.56Ljubljana is one of the smallest capital cities in Europe.

It has no world-famous attractions, however is a charming city full of artists, museums, and galleries. Ljubljana is also an university city, fulfill by students of the state’s largest university that give a remarkable youthful character to the city. As soon as the weather gives a chance the city erupts with spring flowers planted on its streets and crossroads and people enjoying their time in the many open bar, terraces and every place nearby the bank’s river (Ljubljanica) giving an amazing, lively and pleasant atmosphere. Baroque buildings and the city castle are nice spots to admire, as well as the many bridges crossed by the river, the most famous of which is Tromostovje (Triple Bridge).

City market where to buy fresh vegetables, fruits, bio products such meat, eggs, honey, spirit…A pleasent time can be spent there, many caffè and bars are beside the market square. Mobile stands offer food like fried fishes, sausages and handmade pizza. My best time in Ljubljana was spent in this square.
