Prague is one of my favorite European cities. Walking down the streets of Old Town, you really feel like you’re walking back in time – the medieval influences are literally everywhere and the history is so evident. Not only that, but its absolutely beautiful. Like, eye porn everywhere you turn. I know most European cities are older than the entire United States, but Prague was the city where I most felt the whole “Holy crap, these streets, these buildings, EVERYTHING I’m seeing here is older than my entire country.” It was such a cool and surreal feeling to think about how far back the city has existed.
I read yesterday here that the John Lennon Wall in Prague recently got painted over in white, and the only writing left on it is “Wall Is Over!” in reference to Lennon and Ono’s peace message “War Is Over!”
