DSC_0218DSC_0214Prague… In my eyes, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. I have been here a few times and recently returned.

Sights

Normally two to three days should be enough to see everything you have to, which is the Old Town (Stare Mesto) and New Town (Novo Mesto), the Charles Bridge, the Old Town Square, the Town Hall, St. Vitus Cathedral, Kostel Panny Marie Pred Tynem with its beautiful gothic architecture, the National Museum and the world famous Astronomical Clock.DSC_0205DSC_0215DSC_0219DSC_0270

Everything is more or less within walking distance so make sure you stay comfy and don’t wear heels. You definitely shouldn’t miss the Prague Castle, from which you have a wonderful view overlooking the Bohemian city. You can see another panoramic view of the city from Petrin Tower ( the little Eiffel ) located in Petrin Hill. You can get there by the funicular and then take the elevator or climb up on top of the tower. The view is spectacular and worth a visit.Picture 500 Picture 508Picture 519DSC_0350DSC_0342Picture 323 DSC_0357DSC_0331Picture 493

Hotels

Very nice hotels you might consider for your stay are the Pod Vezi, Hilton Prague Old Town, the Archibald at the Charles Bridge, or the highly recommended Aria Hotel.

Food

I’ve always enjoyed the cuisine as well, and great restaurants to try local food are the Terase u Zlate Studne, the Bellevue or the Mlynec Restaurant. The U Prince, located right at the main square, is adorable with a wonderful view over the Old Town from their rooftop terrace. Important Czech dishes you should try are dumplings, duck or beef stew. As a starter, try soup in bread – very delicious. Lovely coffees can be found all around the main squares or by strolling around the beautiful narrow streets of the city. Here you’ll also find other treats, like a sponge cake called Bublanina, and fruit dumplings. A definite must-do is to have a chilled pint of one of the world-famous Czech beers.

Tip: They don’t use euros so make sure you get korunas from an ATM and try to avoid money-exchange kiosks as they have very high commissions. Best to pay with a debit or credit card whenever you can.

I wish you a wonderful time in Prague.Picture 378 Picture 386 Picture 392
