Praga, Repubblica Ceca 🇨🇿 . L'Orologio astronomico di Praga (in ceco Staroměstský Orloj, "orologio della Città Vecchia"), è un monumento scientifico del periodo medioevale, situato nella capitale della Repubblica Ceca. L'orologio è montato sul lato sud del municipio della Città Vecchia, nella Piazza della Città Vecchia ed è una delle più importanti attrazioni turistiche della città. Il meccanismo è composto da tre elementi principali: il quadrante astronomico, sul quale, oltre all'ora, sono rappresentate le posizioni in cielo del Sole e della Luna, insieme ad altre informazioni astronomiche; il "Corteo degli Apostoli", un meccanismo che, allo scoccare di ogni ora, mette in movimento delle figure rappresentanti i 12 Apostoli; e un quadrante inferiore composto da 12 medaglioni raffiguranti i mesi dell'anno. #praga #praga🇨🇿 #repubblicaceca #praha #praha🇨🇿 #praha❤️ #czechrepublic #travel #viaggiare #viaggio #europe #orologi #globetrotter #turismo

#spolupráce | Asi víte, že mám v oblibě “fullface” líčení, tedy že se ráda maluju výrazně. Častokrát jsem tedy měla problém všechno odlíčit bez toho, abych spotřebovala hromadu odličovacích tampónků. Asi před rokem jsem dostala tuhle černou micelárku od @nivea_czsk, která funguje skvěle (viz odlíčená půlka obličeje na fotce) a od té doby jsem ji nevyměnila (mám už asi třetí balení 😁). Úplně nejlepší na ní totiž je, že mi oči i obličej odlíčí jen jedním tampónkem 🙌🏼🖤. #niveaczsk

Charles Bridge and Prague Castle as viewed from The Old Town Bridge Tower. Charles Bridge construction was started in 1357 under King Charles IV. Legen has it the the first stone lain be Charles IV himself at precisely 5:31 am on July 9, 1357, which is a palindrome (1357, 9, 7, 5:31). Completion of the bridge occurred in 1402, taking some 45 years. The bridge also has some 30 statues and statuaries, and 3 protective bridge towers -two on the Lesser Quarter side and the Old Town Bridge Tower. Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world at 70,000 square meters (750,000 square feet). The castle construction started in 870, and completion was in 1929, taking some 1059 years.

It doesn’t have to be perfect
this you and me.
It can be messy and raw
and bruised and ugly
and rough around the edges.
It can be a struggle for my mind
and hard on my heart
and go against every inch of my gut.
It doesn’t have to sparkle or shine
or be smooth and silky
like it does for everyone else.
I promise we really, truly don’t have to be them. - but it has to be you,
in all of this
it has to be just you.

We all choose what to feel. We all choose which parts of reality to keep in our minds and hearts and which to let go. We choose what to remember.
And that’s the Prague I want to remember. Vltava River flowing peacefully. Tall majestic buildings savoring the last sunlight of a day. Crispy air and soft wind caressing the rebellious locks of hair. All that in my most favorite time of the day: sunset. This is also the last picture of Prague that I am to share in my feed.
Since my gram is closest to the travel blog (imo at least), here are main Prague TRAVEL TIPS:
🔹Bring comfortable shoes and a jacket. Be ready for lots of walking and freezing nights. 🔹Bring some cash. Cards aren’t accepted in a great deal of places and the commission in local ATMs is pretty high.
🔹If you want to visit St. Vitus Cathedral (a.k.a. the most fam Prague sightseeing), keep in mind that without ticket you may enter it but may not wander. I recommend buying a route-B ticket as 1. It is the cheapest one 2. The equally awesome and less known Basilica of St. George is included.
🔹Strongly recommend joining a free walking sightseeing tour at the first day in Prague. This way, you will get to know the city. And if you like the tour, you are very welcome to tip your guide.
🔹I also recommend spending the first evening in Wikipedia, reading about Prague. This way, you will know more about the city and will have an idea what you want to see or to do. 🔹My fav places: Memorial to the Victims of Communism, Kafka’s Head, Spanish Synagogue, Basilica of st. George, Charles Bridge.
Maybe I will meet you again someday.

I do not need a falling star to make a wish. A passing by plane will do just fine.
All that throwing coins into fountains, waiting for the clock to strike midnight and other seemingly magical things, in my opinion, aren’t an important part of making a wish. Forming it clearly inside one’s mind is helpful, but not really important, either.
What really matters is letting go.
All my wishes that went real only did so when I forgot all about them. I grew them inside my heart, formed them with my mind and then set them free into the world, letting them wander on their own. Only then did something come out of it. And it was always unexpected, like a thunderbolt straight out of clear sky in a peaceful sunny day. By the time my wishes became a pieces of reality instead of figments of imagination, I forgot them completely.
The world of paradoxes, huh?
I think that’s witty, you know. In a sense that if you want to get something, be ready to give something first. Give without any expectations or even hope. Without mastering a complicated plan or calculating every step. Just give on the spur of the moment. Let it go and let things wander on their own.
Let the world surprise you.⚡️

I love words.
I live surrounded by them, I nourish them in the depths of my heart, let my mind soak in them. I love spelling the sounds, being each and every time amazed by them creating words and even sentences. I love weaving them into fabrics of a text, which looks like an ornament from a distance.
Not surprisingly, I have my favorite words. Do you?
In Russian, I’m irrevocably in love with the word коловратность (it spells: colovratnost’) which means the ever-changing, unstable and yet innerly the same and repeating nature of things. The most ridiculous word in Russian that I know is зевота (spells zevota). For some reasons I can’t stop giggling every time I hear it. It stands for yawning as a noun describing the action, which is quite hilarious itself as well.
I love Japanese words-moods for they are exceptionally poetic. I love Komorebi (sunlight filtering through the tree leaves), Mono-no-aware (bittersweetness of fading beauty), and, most of all, Yuugen (the oneness of all things).
However, my most favorite word is, I think, Xibipíío, from a language of a little tribe living in the Amazon forests. It translates: to cease to exist or to appear, to be born or disappear, to cross the limits of perception. In their culture, everything what is not detected by any senses at the exact moment doesn’t exist anymore. I love this notion as often I find myself believing that things, once I left them, stay the same until I approach them again (quite foolish of me, I know). In fact, they keep changing, dying with every second and being reborn over and over again.
Xibipíío, in this case, to me is about accepting the ever-changing nature of things as well as our place in this world (which isn’t central), not trying to capture things or people inside one’s mind, or to stop the time. In short, accepting the world for what it is.

I am not a forgiving person.
Not even close.
Partly this is because I don’t believe in all those “I’m sorry” as they are merely the waste of breath. They never fix things. It is like covering the elephant in the room with some fabric, drinking tea around it and chatting about the weather while pretending to be oblivious of elephant’s existence.
Partly this is because I believe that every human being has their own right and wrongs. If I’m offended by the situation, it’s my problem and mine alone. The world doesn’t revolve around me and nobody is obliged to take my feelings into consideration while acting. What is more, each and every action could be seen as offending depending on the circumstances. However, the world doesn’t revolve around other people, as well.
Contradictions and all sorts of arguments are inevitable in the world populated with different people. I’m a huge fan of arguing as I believe that it helps in finding the truth and increasing the general knowledge, but there are situations and words that leave me offended. Which I deeply disagree with.
When such things happen (and they inevitably do), I take mental notes. I prefer to learn from the experience so I remember things. The person who broke the promise once will break it again, so there is no use relying on them. The person who lied will have no problem doing it again, too. Because humans, once grown up, hardly change. Forgiving in this case, forgetting things which left one offended merely encourages to make the same mistake over and over again.
So I don’t forgive.
Instead, I remember and adjust my behavior and expectations.
