The History Society visits Prague;
So I've just come back from a week in Prague with my University's History Society. I had such an amazing time; the city was beautiful, the weather was perfect and the food delicious. We visited the local museums, including the Museum of Communism, and I tried the local delicacy; Beef goulash and dumplings, so tasty! The Old Town was so pretty, the Easter Market was out, everywhere was beautifully decorated with painted eggs, easter trees and pretty coloured ribbons. The architecture of the city was amazing, especially with the gothic church dominating the skyline and overlooking the market square. We spent a day looking around the city's Castle, Palace and Cathedral, situated on a hill overlooking the city with the most amazing view. The Cathedral was so decorative, as you can see in one of the pictures below. To be honest, I'd never really considered visiting Prague before this trip, but I'd definitely recommend it to anyone; the city is beautiful, with all of it's mismatch of different coloured and sized buildings in endless rows. Plus, how could anyone resist the delicious sweet 'staroceske trdlo'; a sweet pastry covered in cinnamon sugar.
I couldn't do a blog post without thanking the two people that organised the entire trip, Sheri of Justblogitallinstead and the Society President Grant. I had such an amazing trip, so thank you so much for organising everything, picking a beautiful city, and finding the best hostel! Thank you to everyone who came on the trip too, it was the best bunch of people, and you all made the holiday the best it could possibly be!
On another note, Happy Easter everyone!! I'm now home from University and enjoying being back in my home and spending time with my family. Today we're decorating the house with easter eggs and bunny rabbits, and sourcing twigs to make our easter tree. Hope you all have a lovely long weekend!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
