Ask anyone what the most romantic city in the world is and they will probably answer with Paris.
After visiting Paris 2 times now I still don’t understand why this is the case. I recognise that by the time I stepped foot in the city I had it in my head that it was overrated and that I would not like it. I was indifferent the first visit, but on the second I started to get drawn in. I still however don’t see why it is meant to be so romantic.
Prague on the other hand instantly had a sense of romance about it – and it wasn’t just the hundreds of couples making out everywhere. Maybe it was the architecture, or the cobbled streets or the small intimate restaurants dotted around the city. Yes I know, these elements aren’t unique to Prague but the feeling of romance was palpable.
On our last full day we perused Prague Castle. There we witnessed no fewer than 5 brides and their grooms taking pictures in the gorgeous surroundings. I would have never thought of Prague as this romantic city but after visiting I can see it being a great destination for a wedding or honeymoon.
Ultimately any city is romantic if you are with the right company. Even London with all its grittiness has some really beautiful and romantic spots. You may still think Paris is tops, but go to Prague and then revisit that idea.
