What can I say about Prague when my breath has been taken awaaaaay. The second I landed into Prague, I was in absolute awe over the city. It’s filled with such a spectacular array of details, small town life, with a hometown feel. I was initially obsessed with how all the homes looked like little cottages with their red roofs and how all the buildings tower over you.
One of my best friends moved there a year ago and I’ve been dying to visit her since. Being able to stay in her apartment and get a true local feel of living in the city for 3 days was one of the highlights of my trip! Here are a few things we did:
Day 1: Have dinner at Marina Ristorante. The service was a bit slow but I’d say it’s because it was summer and full of tourists. Regardless, it was 100% worth it because of how amazing the view was from there!
Later that night, we went to an awesome dive bar called Vzorkovna, which was this quirky little place where you go down into a basement and can hear live music, play on swings, or chat with other visitors in bunk beds. I even heard that on some nights, they have a giant dog walking around that you can pet and play with! The place itself was made up of recycled materials which made it even more unique and one of a kind! Also free entry and you just load up this tag at the door which allows you to use to pay for your drinks! Makes lines inside much more efficient and you get your money back if you don’t end up spending all your credit.
Day 2: This was our official full day of seeing the entire city. It’s a relatively small city so everything is walkable but you can also take the tram (purchase tickets at train station) and it’s a nice way to view the sights. We headed to Prague castle and roamed around the area. The views were unbelievable!
Here is the inside of the St. Vitus Cathedral and I was blown away and moved to tears by how gorgeous the stained windows were.
On the way back, we stopped by the John Lennon wall and called it a day.
Day 3: We walked along the river where they had a farmers market going on and visited the Dripstone Wall where you can see countless faces of humans and animals hidden.
Also went to old town square to watch the clock turn to the hour and make its puppet show come alive
And paddle boated in the river during sunset; an unforgettable moment as we could see the Prague castle in the distance.
After paddle boating, we walked along the Charles Bridge where we had trdelnik for the second time that day and I can’t even descriiiiiibe how obsessed I was with that dessert! Everyone needs to get one when visiting Prague. It’s basically a rolled up pastry coated in cinnamon and sugar and filled with the toppings of your choice! I had the whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and strawberries the first time around but the second time I had the apple with whipped cream which was equally as good! Ugh, currently drooling just thinking about it.
Where to stay: Honestly couldn’t tell you because I had a friend but the cost of living in this city is pretty low so I don’t feel like accommodations would be difficult to find.
How to get around: Walk, tram/trains! The city is very walkable and you could honestly do without public trans if you really wanted to. But the city only has 4 main lines that run through so the underground is very easy to use. Trams are great for seeing views/sites!
