So this trip happened earlier this year, but I honestly couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. I traveled to what I like to call my second home this summer. That is to Prague, it truly is a beautiful place to explore. In case you might not know I am half Czech, my father is from there and half my family lives there. So yes believe it or not I am half European and I do speak the language thanks to my lovely grandmother.
Soooo enough about me and on to what a perfect day in this bohemian city looks like…
From the moment you step in this enchanting city you are mesmerized by the rich architecture, the cobblestone streets and the wonderful smell of baked goods. As you tour you will see a perfect combination of renaissance architecture that starts in Old Town Square and a mix of new modern buildings. There’s so much to see and do it all depends on what you enjoy doing.
Things to do in Prague
Charles Bridge: This is a must when in Prague, a lot of films are also shot on this historical bridge. It dates back to the fourteenth century and crosses over the Vltava River. This famous bridge offers a great view of the old city and has a great atmosphere. In the summer millions of people cross this bridge, enjoying the artisans, musicians, and local souvenirs.
Old Town Square and Astronomical Clock: This clock dates back to 1410. It is the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest clock still operating. Besides its rich historical value, it is absolutely beautiful. If you pay a small fee you can actually go all the way to the top and get a tour of the underground. A definite must!!!
Prague Castle: This medieval castle towers above the city adding a dramatic and yet so beautiful landmark. If you make your way to the castle you can explore the outside gardens or take a tour of the inside. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest castle complex in the world.
Dancing House or Fred and Ginger: This is a very unusual looking building, it stands out against the Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings. It resembles two dancing partners. It has a lovely coffee shop on the top floor if you purchase a drink you can go onto the balcony which offers beautiful panoramic views of the city.
