"Prague, finally!" Prague by shivan

Prague Travel Guide: 11,888 reviews and 24,834 photos

I stumbled here, finally!
Three years after having married a genuine "praguese" girl, and being insulted by many friends here in Rome, I took my car and reached her in Prague after a long journey.
Everybody told me that Prague was so beautiful, that was a terrible mistake not to go there, especially with a skilled guide like the one I have.
I has been incredible to experience the enthusiasm many all the people who went there were expressing me while talking about this place. I have never seen it, except when people (including me, this time) talks about Iralend, the enchanted land of my dreams.

And so, on December 20th, I took my small var (actually my wife's) and departed for my longest car travel ever.
I love to travel by car. There is so much to see while driving. Highways are pleasant routes to follow, and your eyes and mind can wander around while driving in a quite pleasant way.
I crossed Italy from south to north, then I entered a white, snowy southern Austria, then the large valleys in southern Germany (Bavaria) and finally reached the Czech border.
There the troubles begun, but I'll give more details in the appropriate chapters.
Enjoy my Prague pages!

    The money changing tip reminded me of one of the favorite scams--selling Bulgarian lev as Czech crowns. You'd think the fact that Bulgarian uses Cyrillic while Czech uses a Latin-based script would be a bit of a clue, wouldn't you?

    Prague looks so beautiful in your pictures... it's one of those cities I dream of visiting one day. BTW, that's a great picture of you and your wife, the one titled, "Finally Me." Happy Birthday.
