Part 4: Prague, Czech Republic

Steeped in rich history and overflowing with charm, we took a 6-hour train ride from Hamburg to this stunning eastern European city in the Czech Republic and it stole my heart right away. Prague or Praha, is a city full of culture, beautiful architecture and houses covered in deep orange brick roof tops, and plenty of cobblestone streets (pack some runners because you really don’t want to be like me and have sore feet after walking 8-hrs in heels).

Things to Note While in Prague:

Since we took the train to get into Prague, our hotel was only a 10 min walk away. But if you are further from the city centre you can use public transport as it’s quite extensive and fairly cheap.

One perk about travelling to Czech Republic is that the exchange rate of the dollar to the local currency of the Czech Koruna is in our favour (by a lot), so the price of eating out was affordable.

Prague is filled with stunning architecture.
What to Do/See in Prague:
  • Charles Bridge (sunrise for no crowds and sunset since it’s beautiful)
  • Old Town Square & Astronomical Clock

Reading at the Charles Bridge.

We also did another walking tour & boat ride where we saw:

  • Castle District & Prague Castle
  • St Vitus Cathedral
  • Top of Old Town Hall for views
  • Josefov (Jewish Quarter & Museum)
  • Wenceslas Square (shopping)
  • Strahov Library (one of the oldest libraries so of course I saw this one)

Prague is a city that captures your heart and attention with its monumental architecture, history and character. It’s a city you can keep coming back to and discover more and more along the way. The maze of cobblestone lanes and tall steeples is perfect for those that like to amble around, getting a feel for the city. Prague offers something for every kind of traveler and tourist and I definitely wished to come back soon!

Have you been to Prague? If you have, what was your favourite part of the city? What are some things you recommend seeing, do have any favourite places to eat or shop?

    I love the Czech Republic, so much! I visited around three years ago during winter, which was one of the best experiences ever. What i like most about it is the balance between the never ending greenery and the heritage that lies in every corner of the city, e.g. Old Town. It truly is a magical place as you have described in that post so perfectly😍
