Until my mom picked Prague as the destination for our family trip, I hadn’t really pondered visiting the historic and picturesque city. I’d learned more about other European cities on TV and movies, and other than being a beautiful Bohemian city that drew countless artists to it, I didn’t know much about it. Since it
