This past weekend, I was the only person from my program to stay in Prague. Tons of people ventured off to Vienna, Rome, and London, but I decided to save some money and stay in the beautiful city I have called home for the past three weeks. While, I wasn’t able to go to clubs at night or go dancing, I managed to have a great time exploring the city and uncovering different areas. All in all, my weekend consisted of eating and walking, but that is never anything to complain about.
On Thursday night I decided to go see The Dancing House in person. It is a beautiful deconstructivist building along the Vltava River. It was built after communism fell in the Czech Republic, acting as a sign of freedom and expression. I had researched the building prior to coming to Prague and was so happy to be able to admire it in person for the first time.
I was very excited to visit the Dali and Warhol museum in Old Town Square on Friday. The museum was relatively empty and the quiet atmosphere made for a much more enjoyable experience. I wandered from floor to floor, taking in the quirky artwork for about two hours. There was so much to see and I was happy to be able to take it all in alone.
