15 Things You Must Do In Prague

15 Things you must do in Prague

Prague is amazing!  All the buildings are gorgeous and everything is surprisingly cheap!  It was wonderful!

Admittedly, my friend and I took a while to realise we were actually in the square.  It’s not so much a square, as the end of a big road.

In the garden next to the Museum Kampa are three giant (creepy) baby statues, that look like someone has pushed their faces in with a boot.  My friend and I were not expecting to see them, but they highly amused us!

Kafka Museum13. Kafka Museum

This museum about Kafka’s life was interesting but I think I would have been more interested if it wasn’t so packed!  I couldn’t get moved, it was so busy.  Make sure to check out another David Cerny statue outside – this is the famous one of two men peeing into a pond shaped like the Czech Republic.

I don’t think I’ll ever forget what my friend said to me as we stood in front of the Tower – I’m not going to repeat it here, as it wasn’t very nice.  It made me laugh, though!  This tower isn’t as big as I thought it would be, but it still gives incredible views from the top!

Basillica 111. St George’s Basilica

This was a nice building to wander around – it wasn’t that big, though, and everyone was continuously moving, so it was impossible to stop and get a proper look at things!

Sigmund Freud Statue10. ‘Hanging Out’

Another David Cerny statue!  My friend and I stumbled upon the statue of Sigmund Freud ‘hanging out’ on the top of a building.  It’s so unusual – I loved it!

Jewish Quarter 19. Jewish Quarter

The style of buildings here is lovely.  I would have loved to have seen the old Jewish cemetery, but the queue was huge and we were only there for a few days, so we went and explored elsewhere.  It gives me an (unneeded) excuse to go back, though!

Vladislav Hall 3

8. Old Royal Palace

Compared to other palaces that I’ve been in, this one was a bit plain but I loved that.  It gave it a sort of uniqueness.  Make sure to check out Vladislav Hall – the ceiling is incredible!

Hemingway Bar 27. Hemingway Bar

The best cocktail bar that I have ever been in.  We were seated just like we would be at a restaurant (in the non-smoking area upstairs) and we were lucky enough to be seated at the bar.  There’s something mesmerising about watching someone expertly make a cocktail.

Old Town Square 36. Old Town Square

Probably the most famous square in Prague.  It was beautiful – and so busy!

DSC_03665. Astronomical Clock Tower

This was beautiful – and it’s the oldest astronomical clock tower in the world that’s still in use!

Charles Bridge 44. Charles Bridge

A trip to Prague is not complete without crossing over the Charles Bridge.  The oldest bridge in Prague and definitely (in my opinion) the most beautiful.

Golden Lane 23. Golden Lane

Situated in the Castle Complex, this little shopping street was so cute!  It’s where I started my cool (read: sad) tiny plate collection!

St Vitus Cathedral 42. St Vitus Cathedral

This is very impressive.  It’s one of those cathedrals that dominates over all of the other buildings surrounding it and I love dark, Gothicy architecture.

View over Prague 51. Petrin Hill

Definitely spend at least half a day here.  It’s huge and my friend and I wandered for ages.  I’m so glad we caught the funicular to the top, as going downhill was so steep!  The locals are probably used to it – we got overtaken by a woman with a pram, as we were going so slowly, trying not to trip over our feet!

DSC_0341Honourable Mention: Trdelnik

Eat a trdelnik!  I’ve still no idea how to pronounce this (even though I think I asked every time I bought one).  It’s basically a pastry that has been grilled over hot coals and sprinkled in sugar and it is delicious.
