Czech Republic - It’s All about Beauty and Love
I have always been a Movie buff. Half of my life decisions quite depend upon which movie inspired me at that point in time. Let me give you an example. In 2011 I was in the mood of adding a new country to my bucket list. With this pending decision on the back of my mind, I took two tickets for a late night show of the Bollywood movie “Rockstar”. Given my track record, the story of a movie is something that usually engages my mind and keeps it active, but this particular movie was different. Surprisingly I was concentrating more on the shooting locations.
And Bingo!!! I hit the right location for my bucket list and that was Prague. It was not before 2015 that I was able to cut off this wish off my wish list. With the right amount of money and a heart filled with love and curiosity saved in my mind for more than 3 years, I finally headed towards world’s one of the most Beautiful Countries that I could have ever visited with my personal list of things to do in Prague.
Let me tell you something about the Czech Republic. It is not exactly as popular as France, Spain, Italy and other European countries, but its picturesque nature and stunning architecture and an astounding number of castles will make you want to be the Prince charming to the right girl, it will make you want to fall in love and romance your special someone like you have never done before. It has a great transportation system and some delicious delicacies for your ever so craving belly.
