We took a Friday morning flight out of Belgium and arrived an hour and a half later in Prague, Czech Republic. Easily the farthest east I've travelled in Europe, Prague has a style and atmosphere unlike any other european city I've travelled to. The closest culture to Czech (that I've seen) is German, and the influences are everywhere.
As everyone says, Prague is beautiful. We were lucky enough to be there on a cloudless saturday with relatively warm temperatures which made for an excellent day of touring which we took full advantage of
My favorite part of the tour was the area up above the castle on the hillside where there were abbeys and churches as well as spectacular views of the city below. The feeling in Prague was generally more lively and energetic than in other cities I've been too in europe and it made for a great experience. Unfortunately our time in the city was very limited and we only spent from friday afternoon to sunday morning there. However, it's safe to say that Prague has officially taken over the number one spot in competition for Jackson's favorite european city. How long it will last there remains to be seen..
