Prague, Czech Republic is one of the best cities you can visit in Central Europe. Filled with artisans and tourists in the Charles Bridge, it was one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to. Out of the many countries and cities I have visited, Prague was the city that both my mom and I continuously mentioned of going back. Sadly, I lost most of my pictures that I took with my camera from this trip, but I was able to get back photos I took with my phone.
If you’ve been with me since beginning of 2016, you would know that I had a post (with all the pictures) of Prague on my other blog, but stupid me decided to delete it when I moved to self hosting. Anyway, here a few things you should do when you visit Prague, Czech Republic
1. walk on Charles bridge
Believe it or not, this picture was taken right outside of the place we were staying at. On the right-ish center, you could see the beautiful Prague Castle, and the little bridge at the bottom is Charles Bridge. The bridge is filled with talented artists and musicians, you’ll spend a good hour just strolling across the bridge itself.
2. walk up to the Prague castle
The walk up to the Prague Castle itself is quite long. However, you won’t get bored along the way because so many interesting people help you stay entertained. I met a very tall man dressed as Pierrot who tried to talk to us. Oh, let’s not forget the beautiful view you have if you just glance over the wall next to you.
3. tour the Prague castle
The Prague Castle is the largest castle in Europe, and it has over seven hundred rooms. Not only is it huge, but it has so much history into it that you’ll be sucked into strolling around the different rooms that are available. The picture below is of St. Vitus Cathedral that is next to the buildings with all the rooms.
4. go inside the st. Vitus cathedral
The stained glass in this cathedral is so beautiful, and you’ll have a blast while walking around the enormous building. Though it’s always packed with tourists, the feeling when you go in is incredible. When people say that the cathedral is breathtaking, they’re not joking.
5. take a picture on the Lennon Wall
This is probably the most photographed place in Prague. It’s a huge wall of graffiti, and was inspired by John Lennon. The wall is filled with song lyrics, peace signs, and so many more symbols of freedom. Also, I found my name on it!

6. walk around Mala Strana
Mala Strana is a little district within the city of Prague, and is right below Charles Bridge. There are many shops around, and you can even find entertainment (like the man below making gigantic bubbles).
7. visit Wenceslas Square
When visiting Prague, most people tend to populate towards the older, antique, and historical buildings. Wenceslas Square, the “modern town”, is filled with what you can find in a normal city – cars, buildings, shops, etc.
8. take a look at the Prague Astronomical Clock
Another populated tourist hotspot in Old Town – the Prague Astronomical Clock. Be aware – hundreds of people come to look at this clock so you may or may not be long away from the clock when it is time.
Little tip: There’s a cafe right behind the clock (I only went to one so I don’t know if there are more). Go there before everyone crowds around so you can sit down and relax while everyone’s trying to squeeze in.
9. go to the Fred & Ginger’s Dancing House
I think it was our last day in Prague when I was desperate to go somewhere new. I was googling around when I saw this interesting and quirky building; we went directly to the building. The dancing building was near the Vltava River, and we walked around the little town for a bit.
10. walk around beautiful streets of prague
My brother was slightly disappointed because the Dancing House wasn’t that “great”, so we turned around and started walking around the streets. I came across this beautiful sight of the Vltava River to the left, beautiful buildings to the right, and the perfect amount of light that made this street look so special. Though I don’t have more pictures, walking around the streets (especially at night) was something I could never forget.
