Snow, incredible architecture and cheap beer overwhelm a first-time traveller outside Thailand
Touted as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Prague has long been a staple tourist destination for adventure-seekers and aesthetic junkies alike. Boasting no less than 12 Unesco World Heritage Sites within its city walls, comprising extravagant castles and churches, the Czech capital would be an outright paradise for any history buff.
I was hesitant to hop on the bandwagon and blindly worship the glorious city before actually witnessing it myself. The only thing that seemed to surprise my uncultured, simpleton mind at the time was the cheap beer they allegedly offered, compared to the sky-high prices in other European countries.
Upon returning from my short, two-night stay in the City of a Hundred Spires, however, I was forced to eat my own preconceived notions. I had been spellbound by all the culturally significant sites Prague had to offer, and in my brief stay, I only wish it had been stretched out a little longer.
