Prague has long been a favourite amongst backpackers all across the globe. But admittedly, I was not completely sold on the hype associated with this Bohemian city.
It is most definitely beautiful and picture perfect from all angles. But I felt it was lacking in sights to see that were unique from one another, or activities to do.
Nonetheless, I enjoyed my short 3 day visit to the Czech capital.
Here are six things I would recommend on visiting in Prague.
Prague Castle & St Vitus Cathedral
By far the standout feature for me of the town, Prague Castle towers over the city atop a hill in magnificent stupor. Climbing the steep hill is absolutely worth it. My favourite was the lookout point at Zahrada Na Valech and the St Vitus Cathedral within the complex.
Quintessentially European, Old Town is charming and picturesque, colourful buildings, old towers, a massive square, an astronomical clock and some horse driven carriages. Every picture here will look like it’s out of a fairytale.
Prague’s answer to the Eiffel Tour, Charles Bridge is the city’s main icon. The bridge has a very gothic feel. It is decorated by a sequential series of 30 statues and statuaries.
Letna Park Biergarten
Hit up Letna park for a great view over the town and a couple of cool Pilsner’s with friends to savour it.
Local Food & Beer
Prague is renowned for it’s beer, which is often cheaper than water itself. Check out Letna or Krema near Old Town for some authentic local, think goulash and bread dumplings. Or head to one of the many market stalls to satiate your sweet tooth with some traditional Trdlenik.
Visit a rooftop terrace at Sunset
For something a little exier, try the rooftop at Hotel U prince which is great at sunset for a couple of drinks and some dinner overlooking the old square.
