Prague has been great to me so far. It has so many amazing monuments and sites to see. It has a good old square and it's a place where tourists can be bewildered with amazement. Quite unfortunately, I haven't yet fallen into the charm that Prague offers. I've seen a few sites and I understand why it's a great plce to visit, but I haven't felt the enchantment of the city. I've been waiting for it and I'm trying to want to love the place, but as a tourist on a backpacker route, it's not yet happening. I think that if I were to live in Prague, I'd love it. It has everything I would want. I think that if I were to come to Prague for a vacation as a sole destination, I'd love it because there's so much to explore. But being at the end of my trip or close to it and having seen so many other captivating cities, it's hard to see what more Prague is offering. I've seen similar sites in so many other places and it's hard to beat some of the earlier memories that I've had. This is why I think I haven't fallen for Prague like I should have. That and the fact that the city has been overrun by tourists now that it's high season. I even planned it out for Prague to be last so that all the other places don't fall in comparison. I think the high season has really affected my opinion. I'm going to see more of the bigger sites today and I hope that things change.
