Czech Republic

Trapped in a fairytale.

The Czech Republic is filled with picturesque orange-roofed towns scattered all about. Be whisked away into the storybook world of Prague by getting lost in the city’s winding alleys and immaculate architecture. For a quainter experience, head to Cesky Krumlov to spend a day exploring castles, hiking in forests or white water rafting down the country’s main river.

Classic and Chic at Perla Hotel, Prague

Classic and Chic at Perla Hotel, Prague

After accidentally walking into The Mark Luxury Hotel Prague, I knew that our actual hotel, Perla Hotel, would have big shoes to fill. Walking into the hotel I was immediately relieved as I loved the decor. Although the words scribbled across the large glass panels read, “Perla”, between that, the bold red and yellow colors and the design of the wooden benches, ... Read More »

On the Mark with The Mark Luxury Hotel Prague

On the Mark with The Mark Luxury Hotel Prague

After a long bus ride from Munich, I was so excited to finally reach Prague. A little too excited maybe. We were going to be splitting our time between two hotels and in all my excitement, we tried to check in at the wrong hotel first. Set in a former baroque palace, The Mark Luxury Hotel Prague, previously a Kempinski property, lives ... Read More »

Foto Friday: Sedlec Ossuary in Kutná Hora

Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels. This week’s photo is of the Sedlec Ossuary in Kutná Hora. In honor of the holiday today, I thought it would be appropriate to post another photo from the Sedlec Ossuary. If you missed my last post, just know that this is not your ordinary ossuary.

A Town Called Český Krumlov

A Town Called Český Krumlov

Making our way from Prague to Vienna, we wanted to break up the journey so we decided to spend one night in Český Krumlov. All week we had heard people mention this small town, and it seemed like no one had actually been there themselves, but had heard it was a great place to visit. We didn’t really know what to ...

Kutná Hora and the Eerie Church of Bones

With Halloween quickly approaching this weekend, I thought it was the perfect time to talk about my visit to Kutná Hora! Ever since I had seen photos of the Sedlec Ossuary, I knew it needed to be on my Europe itinerary. This little Gothic-styled church may not seem all that special from the outside, but step inside, and you’ll quickly realize why ... Read More »

Discovering Prague

Discovering Prague

If you’ve been to Prague before, then you’ll totally understand that I spent my whole first day there with my mouth agape. It was my first time there after all. I spent the entire day roaming the streets, getting lost down alleys, and just meandering without a purpose. Of course I stumbled along some of Prague’s famous sites on the way, ... Read More »

Foto Friday: Prague Castle at Night

Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels. This week’s photo is of the Prague Castle at night. Set high up on a hill, Prague Castle overlooks the city. Dating back to the 13th century, this castle complex is the largest in the world at roughly seven football fields in length. The complex includes royal residences where the ... Read More »

Prague is a Fairytale

Prague is a Fairytale

Built up by so many of my friends and fellow travel bloggers, Prague was another city that I had high expectations for. I was worried that it would end up disappointing me, as Amsterdam did the week before, but from the moment I stepped foot in the Old Town, I felt like I was constantly walking around with my mouth wide ...
