Prague : The Crown Jewel of Central Europe

The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague is also the cultural, social and economic hub of the entirety of Central Europe.

Following our stay in Krakow we thought it only natural to head west and visit the city I had been most anticipating since I began planning this trip. Not knowing a lot about Prague nor the Czech Republic we dived in head first and booked a weeklong stay in the heart of the capital.

Wieliczka Salt Mine : The Man-Made Labyrinth on the Outskirts of Krakow

After a few days in the Official Capital, we made our way to the Royal Capital Krakow.

Continuing our journey south through Central Europe we thought it only natural to visit the cultural centre of Poland. But it wasn't just Krakow that motivated us to linger in Poland a few days longer. One of our family friends (and hosts in Krakow) told us of one of Poland's greatest cultural treasures that not so many outsiders are familiar of, the Wieliczka Salt Mine and the extravagant St Kinga's Chapel roughly 330 feet underground.
