This week I had the pleasure to visit Prague, capital of the old bohemian region, now Czech Republic.

That Prague is a wonderful city is nothing new. But I take the risk to say that it was the most beautiful city I have ever been.

It is not a coincidence that several romancers had chosen this magnificent place to live, also it is clear why Amadeus Mozart chose Prague – the city of the true bohemian – to write some of his famous operas.

With a lot of very old underground buildings, this city has a very peculiar culture to tell us. All washed down with a lot absinthe and beers, I mean, good and cheap beers.

This trip will generate 5 posts on this blog. Certainly, I visited all the historical landmarks in Prague but what really fascinated me was the long and very rich conversations I had with the Czechs on the local pubs.
