New years eve in Prague
My second new year's eve in Prague was almost like a replay of the one in 2007/2008. During New Year's eve celebrations, a real 'war' of fireworks take place in the centre, by the National Museum. A real spectacle of colour and light.
Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of twentieth century Europe. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, making the city one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, receiving more than 4.1 million international visitors annually, as of 2009. Prague firmly holds its position as 'Capital of Eastern Europe' and it a direct concurrence to Paris in tourism. Prague's infrastructure is quite good. The central railway station is clean with no bird shit and offers direct easy connection to airport.
2011 starts with hope of a world with no nuclear war and economic crisis. This year I feel that my traveller's spirit is back and I'm already thinking about few travel destinations like Ukraine, Latvia and Estonia. Discovering Europe with no boundaries! :)
I made few photos in Prague, to see the album click here.
