I'm headed to the "City of 100 Spires" and I couldn't be more excited. I'll be exploring the fascinating history of Prague and surrounding towns, courtesy of Czech Tourism. The focus will be the castles and chateaux that make the city so striking but I'll also visit the UNESCO Heritage Site of Telc and its historic Jewish quarter, the catacombs of Jihlava and of course, the famous Charles Bridge. I've even pulled out my dusty copy of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, to finally start reading it in Milan Kundera's home country and inspiration. So look out for posts on Prague literary inspirations as well as the landscape and history.
