For the whole of July, I am interrailing with a friend around parts of Central Europe. This is a series of blog posts about the places we are visiting and the amazing things we are sure to see!
Prague, was without a doubt my favourite city. Perhaps because we had a little more time there but it was such a chilled out time and a really cool city.
Like a few other places, the first morning was reserved for a Free Walking Tour. I’ve begun to really appreciate these tours as not only do you see the main sights, but you also hear interesting stories which normal tours tend to leave out. On the tour we saw places like the famous astronomical clock – which is said to “perform” every hour on the hour, but it is the biggest anti-climax! However, once you realise how old it is, you can understand why it is not so spectacular – even though the clock itself is beautiful. We walked around the Jewish Quarter and then to the Charles Bridge. The Old Town Square was by far my favourite spot, it’s so beautiful and perfect for some good old people watching.
After all the walking around, we treated ourselves to the most incredible icecream in a donut cone! The most calorie-rich thing I’ve probably ever eaten, but it was so worth it! And then we sat and chilled for a bit on one of the islands in the middle of the river.
Our second day was spent mainly exploring the other side of the river, where the Palace is. As well as the palace, we also saw the John Lennon Wall and some beautiful gardens.
Our third and final day in Prague was mainly filled with wandering around some more as well as visiting the farmers market by the river and ended with a hilarious night on one of the famous pub crawls. They are the best places for meeting people and generally having a great time!
As I mentioned at the start, Prague was definitely my favourite city of the trip. The mix of things you’re able to do and the beautiful buildings and sights all around most certainly provide endless entertainment. I will definitely be returning!
Bye for now x
