Graffiti in Prague

The other day I had made this comment on Facebook:
I gotta be honest...I love Prague, but I don't get why everyone was telling me that it's so beautiful. I find it to be pretty dirty and not that attractive. I love it and am having a GREAT time, but it's not much of a looker.
Then later that day I was going through my pictures (the ones that I posted yesterday), and I felt bad about saying it wasn’t pretty, like I was gossiping about a close friend or something. I fell in love with Prague through the lens of my camera.

Here is some of the graffiti of which I was speaking:

This is also taken from my hotel window.

This is in a really touristy area near the Old Town Square.

This is on the walk from Wenceslas Square to my hotel.

This is also on the walk from Wenceslas Square to my hotel.

...again, on the way to my hotel.

This is on the same street as my hotel.

This is right next door to my hotel.  Don't get my wrong, though, the hotel is very nice.
But I’m even falling in love with the grime now!  Yeah, I think it could use a good scrub down, but I’ve accepted it.  I love Prague, warts and all. 

I can’t wait to show you the Jewish Quarter and Karlstejn Castle!  Stay tuned!

  2. There is so much to take in. The only time I've been out of the country was when I went to Honduras this past Novemeber. I was almost overwhelmed with all the sights sounds and smells of a different country...it was amazing....I journalled also so I can remember as much as possible...be safe and I love ya'll.

  3. The buildings and architecture are so pretty. It's really a shame that there is so much graffiti covering everything. Glad you're having a good time. I'm loving all the pics! Stay safe and have fun!

  5. I have always thought that if, in every city, there was a place where people could express themselves in the form of spray paint...like a giant concrete canvas maybe they would leave the buildings alone...probably not, but it's a nice thought :)
    I am loving the pictures....warts and all ;)
