Discovery of Prague: a city rich in history and culture, perfect for traveling dogs

The next stop is therefore Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. After 8 hours of driving and several stops to stretch our legs and take out our dog, we have arrived in Prague. This city was simply beautiful. With its streets paved with stones, its colorful buildings, its buildings decorated with Gothic and Baroque elements, Prague offers a perfect mix between tradition and modernity.


We began our visit by walking in Letna Park, located on a hill overlooking the city. It was the ideal place to relax after our trip and enjoy the breathtaking view of Prague. My dog was delighted to run in the grass and feel the fresh air of nature.


Then, we went to see the Municipal House, a magnificent Art Nouveau building located on Place de la République. Inside, I was able to admire the magnificent frescoes and decorations, as well as the concert hall, which is one of the most beautiful in the city.


We continued our visit by going to Wenceslas Square, one of the most famous in Prague. This large square is lined with historic buildings, shops and restaurants. It is also the place where many cultural events and events take place.


We also visited the city's Jewish quarter, Josefov, where I was able to see several historic synagogues, as well as the Jewish cemetery, which is one of the oldest in Europe. Then, we took a fun break by visiting the sex machine museum, a unique museum that presents unusual machines and sex objects. Although it was a somewhat controversial attraction, I found it an interesting experience and different from anything I had seen before.


The Old Town district is a real jewel of Prague. We were amazed by the Prague astronomical clock, one of the most famous in the world. This medieval clock presents animated sculptures and astronomical dials, as well as characters that ring the hours. The surrounding streets are filled with restaurants, craft shops and traditional cafes.


Prague Castle was also a must on our visit. Located on a hill, it offers panoramic views of Prague and houses many monuments, museums and gardens. The castle is also the seat of the Czech president. We attended the changing of the guard in front of the main door of the castle, then explored the many rooms and galleries of the castle. St. Vitus Cathedral, located inside the castle, was one of the highlights of our visit. This magnificent Gothic cathedral is one of the most beautiful religious buildings I have ever seen.


The Mala Strana district, located at the foot of the castle, is a historic and picturesque area, with its colorful houses, baroque churches and small quiet squares. Nerudova Street is a famous street in this neighborhood, with its Renaissance houses and traditional restaurants.


Finally, before leaving for our next destination, we made a last stop at Terezin, a former concentration camp used by the Nazis during the Second World War. It was a moving and dark visit, but important not to forget the tragic history of Europe.


In short, Prague is an incredibly beautiful city and rich in history and culture. I loved walking through its picturesque streets, discovering its historical monuments and learning about its tumultuous past. My dog and I had unforgettable moments. Our trip to Prague was a memorable experience that left us with an imperishable memory. If you are looking for a destination for your next vacation, Prague is a city that I highly recommend you to visit. It offers a unique mix of historical charm and modernity, as well as a cultural richness that will not fail to amaze you. In addition, with your pet, you will find a welcoming city in Prague where your four-legged friend will be welcome. As we had to join friends in Stockholm in 1 week, I had the crazy idea of going there by car, and taking a few days getaway to Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.
