While I was travelling from Berlin to Munich, I realised I needed to crash
somewhere along the way, because the journey of 7 hours was too much to
take. So I spontaneously decided to stop in Prague and continue to Munich
I stayed in the Old Prague Hostel, and for €15/night in a 12 bed mixed dorm,
you would struggle to get better. Central and clean. Job done. Prague has a
population of 1.2million, making it the most populated city in Czech Republic,
and I was there for the Easter holidays so there were large crowds, but that
meant plenty of food markets and beer stalls, so I could not complain.
For such a small city, there is so much to see, a beautiful scenic city layered with history and fine architecture. According to the Guinness World Recoreds, Prague has the largest castle in the world. All the sights seem to be a nice walking distance, so take your time and do not worry about the public transport.
Prague is also a beer fanatics paradise, producing some of the finest brews available in the world and it is pretty darn cheap. For example; drinking Long Island Ice Teas (5 measurements of spirits!) in the Dubliner Irish pub
for €3 , you will not break your piggy bank to get a night out here.
A piece of trivia to know is; Czech Republic is changing its name to Czechia in the following few months, criticism over the countries long name has put pressure on officials to change the countries name to something more simplistic.
Here are my favourite things to see and do:
Sightseeing:Charles Bridge – Old Town Square – St. Vitus Cathedral – Prague Castle – Golden Lane – Dancing House – Lennon Wall
Nightlife: Hemingway Bar – Anonymous Bar – Absintherie – Stredoveka Krcma – The Dubliner
