This was my first visit to Prague and I was so pleasantly surprised. I had good expectations for the city but it blew me away - it wasn't like the other European cities I had been to which is what I thought. The beautiful, Eastern European buildings were painted in warm hues and towered over the streets. The atmosphere of the city reminded me of Venice with it's busy yet chilled vibe.

We were lucky that we had such incredible weather despite snow being predicted for our weekend. On our first day we woke up super early to see the sunrise over Charles Bridge which I strongly recommend after seeing how hectic it is just a couple of hours later.

With Prague being quite a small city, it is interesting to just walk down quaint streets and see where you might end up. We spent our time discovering local treasures, eating great food, admiring the architecture and wandering around the Easter markets.
