Right after we (my younger sister an I) returned from Budapest last year, we decided to plan a similar trip for this summer: To Prague! At first we wanted to do another day trip, but my father conviced us to stay for two days: He said that there is so much to see, one day (not even a whole!) wouldn’t be nearly enough. Well, two days aren’t much either, Prague is full of places we haven’t yet seen.
There where some things on our list we definitely wanted to visit: The Astronomical Clock (absolutely beautiful, my favourite), the Lennon Wall (it took us quite some time to find it), the Hradčany (Prague Castle), the Café Imperial. We did all that and then some more… We just wanted to explore the city, to wander around. We actually did not visit the Golden Lane, because you have to pay extra entry for it and we weren’t so desperate to see it in real life. Also, the Hradčany was super crowded so we decided to postpone it – maybe next time.
Prague is truly beautiful, the architecture is very diverse. There are little winding alleys (very medieval), lots of parks, art nouveau buildings, and of course the Vltava with its bridges and little islands. You can even rent pedalos or just take a tour on one of the many sightseeing boat. Another recomendation: Try trdelník. It’s so good! Very sweet, with a slight caramel flavour. We had a normal one and then on the next day one filled with ice cream and berries – the pastry acts as a cone. Whe did not need a lunch that day!
I think I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves now… I imagine it must be beautiful in winter as well, when there aren’t so many people on the streets and everything is much more quiet – and you can really take your time to admire everything. My favourite thing (besides the astrolabe) where definitely the roofs of the towers, with the little turrets and golden balls on top. Just how imagined it… Prague certainly looks like it has stepped out of a fairytale sometimes.
