Christmas in

We're all familiar with Prague, the architectural gem of Europe, with its pastel-painted baroque facades, its adorned and crowded bridges, and the incredible views from its gothic towers

A city that has always been my favorite, since I'm a lover of baroque architecture

We ran up and down the towers all around the city for views like this one - from the Powder Gate

We explored the wonderful streets of this fairytale town, feeling like we had stepped back in time, in an era of kings and ghosts lurking in dark corners and haunted towers β™–

a typical Prague view: charming red roofs and smoke coming out of the chimneys to meet with the fog over the Vltava river

The amazing Baroque church of St. Nicolas in Lesser Town

Streets in Lesser Town, on the way to the Castle. Don't miss the panoramic view from the castle courtyard!

Kampa island in Lesser Town: picturesque cobble stone streets and, as usual, gorgeous colored facades

The Clementinum and its Observation Tower offer beautiful views of the city. You can only enter with a guided tour

Prague is extremely cold during the winter, so pack accordingly (I was wearing 3 pairs of socks, but then again, I'm Greek..) The best thing to do in Prague, is to see the city from a bird's eye point of view. I loved climbing up the narrow, medieval staircases, feeling like a knight 𐂃
