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!
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!
