What more perfect place for a bohemian girl than the historic, and beautiful European city of Prague? The largest city in the Czech Republic was also formally known as the capital of Bohemia. A bohemian is classified as a native of Bohemia or
“a gypsy or wanderer. A person, artist, musician or writer, who lives free from convention.”
In many ways I feel like I can fit that description; being an artist in such a beautiful city with such a rich heritage is overwhelming . The city of Prague has existed for over 1,100 years; it has seen the roman conquering and been named the capitol of the Holy Roman Empire, it has witnessed the rise and the fall of the Habsburg Monarchy rule and that of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Prague was a major city in the protestant reformation, it felt the bitterness of the Thirty-Year’s War and unlike many other European nations, escaped untouched from the destruction of World War Two.
Today we were able to tour major land marks such as the Prague Castel, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and Prague Astronomical Clock which remain intact and breathtaking even after all the years that they have stood. During the tour of these places we were able to witness the apostles coming out of the Astronomical Clock in Old town square and we were even able to climb to the top of the tower to get panoramic city views of old town.
