What do you love about living in Prague?
I get to live in the city which all the world wants to see. Prague has everything: nice architecture of many styles, many gardens for relaxing, galleries, cafes, and great views. Also, only half an hour by local transportation, the picturesque Czech countryside awaits.
What is something people don’t know about Prague?
The city is rich with history and interesting facts! When you walk across the Charles Bridge, stop in the middle and look around on both sides. You’ll be rewarded with a strange sight. On one side the silhouette of the Old and New Town, lined with a stone embankment and gorgeous buildings which are raised above the domes and spires of dozens of churches. On the other side is Mala Strana, pinched between the green slopes of Petrin and Summer, slowly rising from the natural shore to Hradčany. This unique view links the architecture across the city including the dramatic silhouette of the Prague Castle. It’s as if you were looking at two completely different cities, linked by the stone arches of the Charles Bridge–which isn’t far from the truth. Prague had been two separate cities until 1784!

Any final advice for Americans considering a trip to Prague?
My recommendation is the stay for two weeks. You will feel more relaxed and comfortable and get to see most of Prague, a city filled with monuments and sights that many tourists miss. Honestly, you could spend an entire year exploring the city, but two weeks seems like a good start!
