WALKING INTO A STORYBOOK // HELLO PRAGUE

March 21, 2019 Prague, Czechia













Ah, Prague! I was so glad I had time to squeeze in Prague during my Vienna trip, because I wasn't able to go two years ago. Just as everyone said it would be, it truly is a whimsical place that looks like you just stepped into a storybook. I was a bit unsure if I would be able to enjoy the city since the forecast was rainy for the days I was there, but luckily even though it was gloomy I was able to explore the city. Prague is such a magical city and even though I was only there for a short stay, I would definitely go back in a heartbeat. One thing I did underestimate though was how windy and chilly it was. Below are some of my recommendations on what to do! Prague has a special place in my heart, such a beautiful place with colorful buildings and rich culture.

Places to visit
Old Town Square // The heart of Prague that has beautiful, Gothic buildings and the main attraction. A fairy tale square that takes you back in time.
Astronomical Clock // The clock is one of the main attractions in Prague and people flock to see the twelve apostle figurines peeping out when the clock strikes every hour. It is the oldest astronomical clock that's still operating.
Old Town Hall Tower // Come here for a view of Old Town Square! You can capture beautiful, panoramic shots of the square and enjoy a stunning view of the magical city.
Charles Bridge // Historic bridge that crosses the Vltava River in Prague, a short walk that leads from Old Town to the newer areas which is less touristy.  Cross it to get to the John Lennon Wall. The Charles Bridge is a huge tourist spot, but definitely worth a visit. I came here during the day and also at night. There's also a tower you can climb up at the beginning of the bridge for a view of the city.
John Lennon Wall // Famous wall that was once dedicated to Lennon, but the wall is constantly changing with messages of hope, peace, and love. You can also write your own message, just remember to bring a sharpie.
Prague Castle // I underestimated this landmark and almost overlooked coming here, but it's a stunning building with a rich history. Definitely stop by here if you have time as there's a lot of ground to cover.
Palladium // A huge department store that has a grocery store on the bottom floor called Albert

Other suggestions: Dancing House, Jubilee Synagogue

Eats
Sisters // A cute open sandwich shop that costs about $1.50 each. Variety of delicious sandwiches and about a five minute walk from Old Town Square.
La Bottega Linka // A popular spot that's trendy and has delicious dishes to choose from.
My Raw Cafe // I was very excited to find this vegan cafe so close by to Old Town Square! It's also a couple of steps away from Sisters. I would recommend coming here if you're looking for yummy vegan dishes, their coffee cheesecake is amazing.
Onesip Coffee // A small, three seater coffee shop that's right by Old Town Square. Perfect spot to sit down and grab a cup of coffee.

Other food suggestions: Cafe Savoy, John Lennon Pub, Nostress, Home Kitchen, Misto, Mr. HotDog, Cafe Jen, and Zmrzlinar for ice cream
Bakery & Coffee suggestions: Cukrarna Mysak, Ema Espresso Bar, and Muj Salek Kavy
