An Architectural Jewel Box: Prague

I am certain if the façade of my building was as beautiful as these, I might have to pitch a tent outside so I could enjoy all its beauty.

 These architectural wonders are found in Prague, a destination that has been on my travel "to-do" list for the last five years and I just haven't been able to get to.  Friends went this past February and can't stop talking about it.  Seems to be what happens when you visit this capital city of the Czech Republic.  It is widely considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, only minimally damaged during World War II so much of it's historical splendor remains.   It is home to Prague castle, the largest ancient castle in the world.....and pork, dumplings and sauerkraut!!  One of my favorite meals growing up with some Czech blood coursing through my veins.
