Capital of Czech Republic and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, city of Prague offers multiple fun opportunities. I had a privilege and opportunity to spend some time in this amazingly looking city and to experience all sides of its opportunities. Including shopping and pricing, of course.
Charles Bridge over river of Vltava is one of the most important monuments in the city. Standing on it and watching beautiful scenery in front of my eyes, I realized that this city provides me almost everything I’m searching in the city in which I can see myself living in some future ahead. Art crafts, painters, musicians, love in the air completes a feeling of full satisfaction.
