Easy Walking Tour Around Prague (Plus Czech Foodies)

Apart from being declared as a city of love, Prague probably is one of the best destination for any medieval architecture junkie, with its well preserved Gothic and Romanesque monuments. Here are some of my best snap shots while walking around Prague’s old district. prague
