This is where the fairies come to dance, in this magical fairytale city.

All of Prague is like a fairyland and when you are here you are sure the fairies are too.

Who else were these rooftops built for?

We of course can enjoy them, but only the fairies can dance up there!

Feeling a bit nostalgic for Prague and I thought you might enjoy some images too!

Okay….. so this isn’t exactly a roof, it’s a ceiling, but I included it because in Prague the things under the roof are just as beautiful as the things on the roof!
Cheers to you from incomparable Prague~

  1. Your pictures are amazing. I have been in Prague many years ago over 30 … and it was a dirty place even though we totally enjoyed it. It had many grey places and I don’t remember many colours. I think I need to go again now!

    • Yes I do think so! It is not dirty and it is full of color and charm and magic. Interesting, we have two good friends and we were out to dinner with them after we had returned from Prague. They had been. I asked the wife how she liked it. She said “I didn’t like it.”
      She couldn’t articulate why as clearly as you did.
      I asked her husband how he liked it. He said, “I thought it was the most beautiful, charming city I had ever seen.”
      People do sometimes just like different things, which if this pronounced in a marriage could be difficult I imagine.
      But viva la difference~
      Maybe Prague is just not your cup of tea~

      • I actually think it has changed a lot as my sister also went and loved it. When I went so long ago it was still in the “East” and customs were extremely scary too. It felt like almost you are doing something wrong with the heavy police everywhere. I will one day go again and see the difference.

    • Oh how wonderful for you! I have two suggestions, the first you will do anywhay most likely and that is just walk around and explore the old city on both sides of the river. As you wonder you will find churches, art galleries, mosaics, medieval buildings, statuary, hidden gems everywhere! Secondly, even if you are no an opera fan, go to the opera! The interior of the opera house is just to die for. I have many posts on Prague from my last trip there under travel May 2013, and you can see what I mean about the opera house in my photos. You will enjoy the experience because you will feel as is you have been transported back in time and the whole evening will be magical! Enjoy Prague!! You will!!

  3. Fabulous captures! Prague would have to be one of my favorite cities – and although I can’t remember the colorfulness reflected in your photos, I do remember the amazing architecture and the total uniqueness of the city. It really was like stepping back into a fairy-tale!

  4. Hi Cindy and thanx for this amazing post dedicated to one of the most wonderful European cities… I don’t find THE appropriate adjective(s) to describe Prague where I’ve been twice… I simply miss this unique city, situated at historical crossroads…

    • No, or in the modern world of architecture. The artistry and intricate devotional mastery devoted to these old medieval buildings are unsurpassed in the modern era. They blow me away~
