Signal's Must-See Festival of Lights

Just when I thought Prague couldn't get more magical... *BAM* the Signal Festival of Lights happened. This festival is well-known throughout Europe, as its home is in Prague. Before coming here, I wasn't aware of this insanely cool festival, and I'm so lucky I was in town for it. All throughout the city, there are stations set up, some for free, where lights project on buildings or are set up in their own unique way. The lights tell a story, the story of how we as humans react when aliens come down to earth. Although it was difficult to follow, I somehow got the gist of it, thanks to the Signal app.
 White inflatable "aliens" were scattered through the city, here's an example of one.

You can either roam around Prague hunting down these unique exhibits, or you can download the Signal app in the app store on your mobile device. My roommate got the app, and let me tell you, I don't know what we would've done without it. We probably would've seen only one or two exhibits, but with this app we were able to see almost all of them.

My favorite exhibit had to be the 3D story. Although it cost 50 korunas, it was well-worth it. We put on our 3D glasses and were told 8 consecutive stories, which all seemed to coincide with one another and human organisms. Not going to lie, it was a little spooky. Coming from a girl who had sensory integration as a child, I would have not made it one second through that exhibit.

I couldn't tell you how, but my camera was able to capture astonishing pictures during the festival. Lucky for you, I'll share them. They obviously don't even stand close to what the real experience was like, but it helps you get the idea. Whenever you're in Prague, make sure to check out the Signal Festival of Lights, you won't want to miss this.
