Winter in Prague


Prague was the fourth destination I visited on my Europe trip and honestly: it was one of my favourites. We spent three days there and it was the perfect amount of time. After previously traveling the three Scandinavian countries Prague was a breath of fresh air because it was SO CHEAP in comparison. We lived like Queens and it was amazing.

On the first day we arrived into the city at 12pm so we spent the remainder of the day exploring the streets around us. On the 2nd day we participated in a walking tour (would totally recommend) and it was excellent hearing about the history of Prague. That night we went to a Czech restaurant and tried out some of their traditional meals ~ so hearty, so carby, so delicious. The final day consisted on a LOT of walking. We walked from Old Town (where we were staying) up to the Castle, and then to New Town, and then back to Old Town again. Our feet were so sore but it was completely worth it.

In a city so old and full of history I think it's important to walk around and take it all in. Sadly, Prague is littered with a ton of "segway tours" which I think are ridiculous. Sure - going on a Segway would be less exhausting - but the Segways detract away from the beautiful city :(.

We stayed at the InterContinental hotel and I couldn't recommend it enough. It was very central and in a safe/nice area of the city with the Old Town being only a five minute walk away. Funny story ~ one day my mum and I went to the spa and as we were about to enter the sauna this nude lady came up to us and rudely said "No, no can't enter the sauna with your togs on..the toxins in them aren't good". Erm..i'm a pretty liberal gal..but her just standing in front of us completely nude (and ungroomed I should add..) put me off completely so mum and I hibernated back to our room. So yeah, if you go to this hotel and want to use the spa facilities be prepared to strip down haha, I was not prepared to strip down in front of strangers.

Overall I really, really liked Prague. It was such a beautiful city and I was so fascinated by all its history. It's really cheap so it's a great getaway if you're on a budget. Will definitely be going back there in the future :).

Have any of you visited Prague too? If so, what did you think?
