If you follow our Instagram, YouTube or Facebook; you know we were in Prague this January!
We drove from Brno, Czech Republic; which I about 200 kilometer (125 miles) and 2 hours. This road (D1/E65) is the worst road we took so far! It has two lanes, yes, but right one is full of bumps. We were shaking constantly, like we were off roading. Our advice is drive in left lane. Oh, let’s not forget we paid Czech vignette 17 EUR (for 10 days) and road was terrible!
ACCOMMODATION in Prague
Because we booked last minute, we stayed outside city center, everything we liked was booked. Hotel we stayed in was not something we want to advertise, therefore we won’t. However, we can tell you about our neighborhood. We stayed in Prague 4, close to metro station Pražskeho povstani. Metro ride to main city attractions is approx. 10-15 minute.
ATTRACTIONS in Prague
First day we started with Prague Castle. You have metro (line A) & tram (22) which can take you directly at the Castle entrance. We waited approx. 30 minute to get inside Castle, just to realize that was no entrance, but security check. Best parts of Castle are free! You can walk around Castle, see exchanging of guards, go inside St. Vitus Cathedral and see the gardens for free. We climbed up St. Vitus Tower, from where you have breathtaking view of Prague city and Charles Bridge. Only thing that we wanted to see, but ticket was required, was Golden Lane. The tickets lines were so long, which meant more waiting, so we decided to skip it. If you have time to wait in line for tickets (or you were smart to buy online), you can also see inside Royal Palace and St. Georges Basilica.
Close by you can find Strahov Monastery where monks make their own beer (worth of trying if you are beer lover). From Monastery we followed Hunger Wall all the way up to Petrin tower and gardens. You can take funicular downhill, but we decided to walk down to the city trough Petrin hill gardens.
On our way to Metro station we passed Charles bridge and it was crazy busy with tourists and different vendors. You can see in our YouTube video how Maya is barely navigating GoPro stick.
Second day, we started our adventure in Prague Old Town, visiting all must see places by many bloggers: Old Town Square, Hall and Astronom ical clock, State Opera, Old Jewish Cemetery, Spanish Synagogue, statue of Franz Kafka, National Theater, Dancing House. Yes, after this big walk we sat down for lunch!
As Croatians, we had to go to “U Fleku” restaurant. It is famous, for us, because soccer club Hajduk was founded there in 1911. They have only few items on menu, but all local food very well prepared.
After well-deserved lunch we continued our walk on other side of Vltava River. We climbed up to Letna gardens, from where you can see entire city and have coffee in bar on top.
We took afternoon stroll on Vltava River, where people feed swans. This is unique experience you cannot miss and great Instagram location!
Close by you can find Franz Kafka museum, John Lennon wall and beautiful Kampa Island.
