Široká, Staré Město, 110 00 Praha-Praha 1, Czechia
We took a tour that included this old Jewish cemetery. I wondered how the headstones could be so close together, and now I know. They had limited space, so they buried people in layers & put all the headstones for the layers together on top.

Vězeňská 1, 110 00 Praha 1-Staré Město, Czechia
A few steps from Prague's beautiful Spanish Synagogue, in the middle of Dusni Street where the city's most famous writer used to live, a headless, handless and footless giant supports a much smaller Kafka riding on his shoulders. The artist says...

Happened to be on a rooftop bar at the right time in Prague. Guess where the bar is from this vantage point?

Ovocný trh 19, 110 00 Praha-Staré Město, Czechia
Prague’s Grand Café Orient is the only cubist-designed space of its kind in the world. It occupies the first floor of the House of the Black Madonna, designed in 1911 by modernist architect Josef Gočár. Renovated in 2005, the...

Staroměstské nám., 110 00 Praha 1-Staré Město, Czechia
You can't miss it. In my book it's a major symbol of Prague with all the jutted mini-towers. Makes one think of every castle any child has seen in their storybooks.

Staroměstské nám. 1/4, 110 00 Praha-Staré Město, Czechia
Old Town Square, founded in the 12th century, is the center of Prague. In the middle of it all, the Old Town Hall (which also houses the famous Astronomical Clock), built in 1338, still provides the best  360-degree views of the city. For a...

Found this walking in Prague hanging from the roof.

Havelská 13, Staré Město, 110 00 Praha 1, Czechia
Prague's permanent market of goods and gifts. I just love those outdoor European markets.

Zucchini flower stuffed with scallops, zucchini, trumpet mushrooms and sage ~ one dish from a memorable seven course lunch. Don't miss it!

Husova 10/232, 110 00 Praha 1-Staré Město, Czechia
Spend a little time outside capital city Prague, and you will quickly discover the Czechs' love of beer. The vast countryside is covered with hop-growing contraptions and monstrous signs advertising the national brews. After touring the country...

Husova 228/17 Staré Město Praha 1 Praha 1, 110 00 Praha 1, Czechia
If you want to practice Czech, drink delicious beer, and avoid other tourists, U Zlatého Tygra ("The Golden Tiger") is your kind of pub. The late Václav Havel took former U.S. President Bill Clinton here to give him a taste of authentic Czech...

Betlémské nám. 255/4, 110 00 Praha 1-Staré Město, Czechia
If you are looking for a quiet place to relax away from the thick crowds of central Prague, try Bethlehem Square. A 5-minute walk from Old Town Square, it is a quiet, calm refuge hidden away from the tourists. Named after Bethlehem Chapel...

Karlův most Praha 1, 110 00 Praha 1, Czechia
My friend suggested Prague as a potential for a three city visit in Europe this summer. It turned out to be an excellent suggestion and the highlight of the trip. It's a city that offers a photobug like my husband and I, numerous beautiful sights...

Národní 22, Nové Město, 110 00 Praha 1, Czechia
Situated on the second story of a building overlooking a busy street in Prague, Cafe Louvre is a quiet respite. Full of clinking glasses, high backed chairs, and lofty ceilings, the atmosphere is light and elegant. I was delighted to see pancakes...

Jiráskovo nám. 1981/6, 120 00 Praha 2-Nové Město, Czechia
We'd heard about this building while researching Prague, but had forgotten about it until we went one tram stop too far on the way to Wenceslas Square. Commonly called the "dancing building" or "Fred and Ginger" in homage to Astaire and Rogers,...

Rašínovo nábř. 1981/80, 120 00 Praha-Nové Město, Czechia
Celeste is a must-see and must-dine location in Prague. Beautifully situated on the top floor of Frank Gehry's sensational "Dancing House," the glass windowed restaurant overlooks the Vltava River and the Royal Castle. Second course at lunch:...

Cihelná 635/2b, 118 00 Malá Strana, Czechia
Located right in front of the Franz Kafka museum in the Lesser Town (Mala Strana) area of Prague, is one of the funniest fountains I’ve ever seen. Two bronze sculptures in the form of two men pee into a Czech Republic-shaped enclosure. Created by...

Velkopřevorské náměstí, 100 00 Praha 1, Czechia
Somewhat off the beaten path at Grand Priory Square, The John Lennon Wall is street art worth going out of your way for. The Wall is owned by the Knights of Malta and has been covered in John Lennon and Beatles-inspired graffiti since the 1980s....

This is a must. After exploring Prague Castle relax at this hillside restaurant and enjoy its unique menu and exceptional view.

Malostranské nám., 118 00 Praha 1-Malá Strana, Czechia
Lesser Town Square was originally the spot for the poor and "non-royalty", but now it's a tourist and shopping mecca with the Charles Bridge connecting it to the rest of classic Prague. We did not venture into the church, but I thought it was...

Jiřská 4, 119 00 Hl.m. Praha-Praha 1, Czechia
I just thought it was quite decorative and made for a wonderful shot. Sometimes you have to skip on the usual shots and just grab those little things you come across.

Táboritská 696/18, 130 00 Praha 3-Žižkov, Czechia
open since 2011 this former laundry now sits solidly in place as a locals cafe and bar. Its the kind of place I wish were around when I lived in the city (good coffee, light meals, not stuffy) but it proves that there is always something new and...

Slezská 62, 120 00 Praha 2, Czechia
Bearded men with tattoos running up their arms, women drinking beers, and children running around with pups were outside Moment Café on a warm spring evening. Moment, located in Prague’s residential Vinohrady neighborhood, offers a unique variety...

U Lužického semináře 91/10, 118 00 Praha-Malá Strana, Czechia
In what I consider one of those 'vacation' moments, I stumbled into Shakespeare & Sons bookstore, not far from the Lennon Wall or the peeing statues outside the Kafka Museum. I made my way downstairs to the philosophy and social sciences sections...
