First off apologises for my absence recently, my health hasn't been overly wonderful and I have left this blog by the waste-side but I am back and here to stay! .
If you are thinking of going to Prague here's all the info you need to know. Out of all the places I visited on my Interrail trip Prague is by far my favourite for a number of reasons. Without further a do, here is all we got up to in this wonderful city!
We arrived from Berlin late in the evening and headed straight for Old Town Square where all the action takes place. I highly recommend you see Prague at night as the buildings are all lit up and there is a church that genuinely looks like something out of a Disney Movie.
One of the top things to see in Prague is the Astronomical Clock which does a 'show' every hour with trumpets being played. It only lasts less than 5 minutes but you have to see it for yourself. A great place for dinner is the UPrince Hotel that allows outside dining and when the weather is fine it is a must!
During the day you can take a lift to the top of the Town Hall Tower where you will see views of the entire city. I recommend doing this when the Clock show is on as the queues are minimal with everyone standing around the clock and very few in the tower! Also go to the Church in the picture above. You have to go through the arch between two restaurants to find the entrance but the inside is spectacular.
One of the highlights of the city is the breathtaking views from Prague Castle. It is a tough climb with over 300 steps but when you reach the top and turn around you will be amazed. You can also visit the Castle and Cathedral on the hill and if you time it right see the changing of the guard. Out of all the things I have done on this trip; walking up all those steps and taking in the views from the top was one of my favourites to date!
After climbing down the steps (Which is much easier and more enjoyable) head for the John Lennon Wall. It is a hidden gem just off Charles Bridge with artwork and beatles songs being sung. Sit down and just take it all in.
Speaking of Charles Bridge take the time to walk it at day and at night. During the day it is full of stalls of artwork and handcrafted gifts and at night musicians take the stage providing a completely different atmosphere.
TAKE A SEGWAY!!
It is by far the most fun thing you will do! There are plenty of companies offering segway tours around the city and I recommend you do one. Don't be afraid to negotiate with them to get a better price but trust me, it will be worth the money.
We told our guide we just wanted to ride around the city as we had everything seen so he bought us to a park and we got to see parts of the city we didn't even know existed! It is also so much fun going around like a pro on a Segway!
Prague has a lot to offer for both young and old. It is the perfect location for a few days away. One of my favourite European cities! I'm actually heading back to the Christmas Markets I love the place so much!
I hope you found this blog helpful and let me know if you are thinking of visiting Prague soon!
Until next time,
