The spires of Prague and a day trip to Karlstejn Castle

Since Eastern Europe opened up, Prague catapulted to be one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations.  And for good reason – some of the architecture transplants you 600 years into past Bohemia with its fantastic Old Town, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and generally meeting its name as the “City of a Hundred Spires”.  But with such fame of course comes the hordes of fellow tourists which can take some of the wonder and energy out of the experience


Definitely worth the trip as it is a stunning old European City, but just be prepared for it maybe not to hit that magical note you were hoping for
