Prague is a city that you could keep walking and never stop discovering a hidden square or beautiful over look. Old Town Square is a central meeting point filled with restaurants, bars, a shops. It is also home to the Astronomical Clock which draws huge crowds to the square every hour on the hour. The weekend I was there just so happened to also be an Easter Festival so the square was colorfully decorated. Vendors set up carts and stands selling hand made crafts and tasty treats. A popular one is a pastry dough that is wrapped around a hot cylinder and "baked" over hot coals. They season is with vanilla, sugars, and cinnamon, A close walk from Old Town Square is the Charles Bridge that is also lined with vendors and beautiful views of the river. Cross the bridge and ask some locals about the John Lennon Wall - off the beaten path locals have been paying their respects to the singer by posting lyrics and pictures on this wall. Leave your mark, it's encouraged! From across the bridge you are able to walk through the town to the Prague Castle. Entrance to the grounds is free, pay a small fee and take a walk down Artists Row, or catch the changing of the guards. The views from the top are amazing and you can see entire city!
