Why You Need To Visit Prague

I will be the first to hold my hands up and say I was excited to go to Prague but didn’t expect to fall in love with a city like I did Barcelona.

I have to admit… I did fall in love!

If you want to see more travel posts I have linked my Barcelona Lookbook and my Top 5 Tips for Barcelona.

I mean look at this photo?! The buildings in Prague are the most beautiful, detailed and historic I have seen in ages and every street was completely picturesque.

If you love travelling but find it quite a financial ordeal, Prague is also perfect.

Even down some of the most touristy areas, we grabbed large pizzas and a drink for around £7 each which is such good value – as well as it being amazing food too!

Also, beer in Prague is renowned for being cheap (about the same as a Diet Coke to be exact!) so if you do like a casual drink or two, it won’t break the bank.

The sites in Prague are just stunning and I found that so many things they had to offer were totally original and unique compared to other tourist cities. We went to the John Lennon Wall (photo below) which is a graffiti wall with so much culture and emotion behind it. I’ve never seen anything quite like it!

On a side note, if you love toy shops or have children, there is a crazy big Hamleys that has a slide and an ornate carousel inside!

On the last day Adam and I visited The Apple Museum as I knew beforehand that it was forecast to thunderstorm. It was quite pricey for such a small museum but it was an attraction completely different to anything we had done before. I have also included a photo of some of the Apple laptops they had displayed because it looked so cool. Steve Jobs was a phenomenal person and it was nice to learn more about his business ventures.

The transport in Prague is also super easy to navigate and understand – considering the language differences.

We used the metro to get around when the journey was long or the weather was terrible and it was great. You pay 48 CZK each for 30 minutes of travel, so around £1.70 which I think is pretty good. They only have 3 lines and everything is signposted so switching lines or knowing where your stop is, isn’t a nightmare at all and so easy!

As I mentioned earlier, the history in Prague is so rich. You can do tours and visit museums that focus on the rule of Communism or WW2 or you can marvel at the famous astronomical clock which was installed in 1410 and is one of the most amazing masterpieces of its time. So if you love history, it’s one for you!

    Beautiful photos! It reminds me of my trip to Prague about a year ago (end of July 2016). Such a stunning city. It sounds like you took the time to explore the city and culture between sightseeing and museums which is really nice. I would definitely go back if I had the chance 🙂

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:04 pm

      Did you love it too then, I totally would go back as well! I think the city has so many different types of things to explore, it’s great! Thank you so much! xxx

    I just visited Prague 3 weeks ago and it’s the most beautiful city !

      • August 16, 2017 / 3:11 am

        I was visiting London for a few weeks and we decided to spend a day in Prague 😊

  5. August 14, 2017 / 9:27 pm

    I have never visited Prague (or anywhere in Europe, why’s it so far??), but these pictures are all so gorgeous! I love all the architecture 😀

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:11 pm

      Every street had such gorgeous buildings like this! I loved it! European cities are my absolute favourite to visit at the moment xx

    I just need to get over to that side of the pond period. I don’t care where I go. Defiantly any where in europe and defiantly greece.

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:12 pm

      Greece is top of my list! So much blue and white in places like Mykonos and Santorini that I’m hooked on going!! xx

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:12 pm

      Thank you lovely! I hope you do too, it’s the best! xxx

  7. August 14, 2017 / 9:54 pm

    Ah this looks amazing! I would love to go!

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:13 pm

      Thank you, it totally was! Hope you get there some day, I 100% recommend it! xx

  8. August 14, 2017 / 10:14 pm

    Love these photos, looks amazing! x

  9. August 14, 2017 / 11:03 pm

    Prague is high on my list! My bf has already been so it’s taking a backseat to other places that neither of us have been to yet. Your photos are so enticing though.

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:14 pm

      My boyfriend and I are doing that at the moment too – exploring totally new places together and then potentially revisiting others. Adam has never been to Rome and I went quite a few years ago and fell in love so no doubt we will get round to going again some time!! So glad you liked them, I can’t do the city justice! xxx

  10. August 15, 2017 / 12:17 am

    Your photos make me nostalgic. Prague is such a fairy tale! I visited it at the end of last year and it was glorious. x

  11. August 15, 2017 / 12:41 am

    Def one on my bucket list! So beautiful 🙂

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:15 pm

      Honestly is! Hope you get there some day soon! xx

  12. August 15, 2017 / 4:08 am

    Prague looks beautiful in your photos!

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:15 pm

      I hope I could do it just a little bit of justice of how beautiful it looks! xx

  13. August 15, 2017 / 4:24 am

    I’ve always doubted about visiting Prague but after this post, I’m definitely going to book a ticket sometime! The pictures are amazing

      Thank you so much for stopping by! I’m so glad you liked the photos, it is honestly such a fantastic place that I don’t feel like I can do it justice! I didn’t realise how much I would fall in love with it – totally amazing really! xx

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:17 pm

      It is incredible! That was a recommendation from a friend who went not that long before me and it was definitely worth it – perfect photo opportunity!! xx

  14. August 15, 2017 / 9:22 am

    I haven’t visited it yet, but I would love to so much! xx Gorgeous pictures as well x

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:17 pm

      Hope you get there some day soon, it’s incredible! Thank you so much darling xx

    I have been there once and I had tha same feeling than you. The old-world streets and buildings are so magnificent as if you were walking in the settings of a historic film. On the other hand the city is pretty clear and renovated, as far as the tourist attractions as concerned. Howvwer, Barcelona was love at first site, which was similar to my first visit to Paris. Prague is after them on my list.

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:19 pm

      Barcelona, for me too, will always remain at the top. It has absolutely everything and I am constantly in awe of the place. I could quite happily go every year!! That’s exactly why I loved Prague though. That mix of old and new really drew me in, I really enjoyed it! xx

  16. August 15, 2017 / 11:19 am

    I have never visited Prague but it looks such a beautiful place, I hope I get to go there one day 😍 xx

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:19 pm

      I hope you do too, it’s totally worth it! xx

  17. August 15, 2017 / 12:01 pm

    I really want to visit Prague now!! Your pictures are so amazing!! Great great post! xx

  18. August 15, 2017 / 12:17 pm

    Love these photos!! I want to travel everywhere!

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:19 pm

      I feel like that whenever I see travel posts! If only my bank account agreed… haha!! xx

      • August 15, 2017 / 11:37 pm

        I know that’s the problem haha

    • August 15, 2017 / 11:20 pm

      Oh really haha, I’m glad he loves it too! Did you? Omg thank you so much darling I’ll check it out xxx

      • August 15, 2017 / 11:23 pm

        I’ve never had the opportunity to go just always here the stories from my brother, but it’s on my list of places to go for sure! Xo

  19. August 15, 2017 / 9:52 pm

    Yup! Prague might be/have been lesser known, but it is simply wonderful! 😉

  20. August 15, 2017 / 10:37 pm

    I’m visiting Prague for the first time in December, thanks so much for those tips! Great to know that if we start running low on cash, pizza and beer can pull us through! hehe 🙂

    Loved this post! Reminded me of my own trip to Prague. I was exactly the same, didn’t expect to love it as much as Barcelona but I certainly did! Such a beautiful city.

    • August 17, 2017 / 9:18 pm

      How strange that we came to the same conclusion! Beautiful place, for sure! xx

  29. August 18, 2017 / 10:19 pm

    Don’t do it, you’ll be addicted to it 😂😂😍

  30. September 6, 2017 / 5:25 pm

    What a coincidental title – just what I was thinking! Glad I found this before I went.

  31. September 27, 2017 / 9:16 am

    Prague looks amazing! Absolutely love your pictures Ella. There are so many cities I want to visit, Prague is on my list now xx
