If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen the pictures of Prague that I have posted while I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I can only imagine the challenges of setting a book in such a well-known city, and attempting to describe the city in a way that does it justice. Because, quite frankly, Prague is amazing. I was there for one short weekend, and though it was not long enough to explore the city the way it deserves, it was long enough to leave a permanent imprint on my mind. Reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone has been an adventure in journeying back to Prague, and let me assure you that Laini Taylor has done an amazing job at capturing the beauty of Prague.
I have over 200 pictures from my weekend in Prague, but rather than assault you with photos, I have chosen a few that have been accurately described in Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
The castle on the hill (upper right corner) with Charles Bridge
The Jewish Cemetery, which was so aptly described that I damn near squealed in delight (which just seems wrong given the subject matter)
The absinthe you find (and drink)
The vendors/artists that line Charles Bridge (and the statues as well)
More Charles Bridge
The Cathedral near the castle on the hill.
What are your thoughts/reactions? Have you been to Prague? Have you read Daughter of Smoke and Bone?
