Our time in Prague was different to the rest of our time in Europe. We settled down, and spent almost three weeks in this beautiful city. Catching up on work, sleep and exploring. It didn’t seem fitting to write a budget related post as we have done for our previous destinations (Bulgaria, Budapest, Bucharest)
So, instead I decided to put together this post. Best described as Postcards from Prague, to highlight the best of our time here…
If you’ve been watching our Youtube videos then you’ll know my brother Niall came out to visit us. We used most of our exploring time to show him around the city. Including taking a trip to Hamleys Toy Shop.
While I’d never advise anyone to actually buy anything here (things are often priced above RRP) the photo opportunities for kids (or big kids like me) are endless. In fact, this particular Hamleys includes a slide that you can take down from the second floor to the first. I have to say I was a little disappointed when Helen told me I was too big to have a go.
Along one of the main strips within the historical old town we came across a torture museum. This museum was clearly targeted towards ‘typical tourists’ however we decided to take a look around regardless.
We bought a duel ticket for this and the wax museum next door that cost a little under £10 per person. An while we weren’t disappointed, we also wasn’t blown away. With each museum taking around 30 minutes to walk around.
It’s no secret that Helen and I are huge fans of America. Which is why we jumped at the chance to have an American day in Prague. Exploring the Apple Museum (if you’ve not already read my more in-depth review you can here). As well as dine at the largest Hard Rock Cafe in Europe!
One of our final days truly exploring the city of Prague included a trip around the old town hall. This trip provides a behind-the-scenes look at perhaps the most popular attraction in Prague, the astronomical clock in action. The tour lasted an hour and was the perfect way to learn more about the history of Prague.
We followed this up with a trip to Prague Zoo. This came highly recommended on Trip Advisor and seemed like the perfect place to spend our afternoon in the sunshine. The entry costs were very reasonable (200kc adults, 150kc for children, seniors and students with family tickets available)
The zoo is around 45 minutes out of the city centre of Prague but is easily accessible by public transport.
Prague is a truly magical place. I highly recommend visiting when you have the chance. As always, I’d love to know more about your experiences here, be sure to let me know in the comments below. In the meantime we’re heading off to our next destination, Berlin!
