Planning a weekend getaway can be so exciting and refreshing! Here’s a virtual journey to one of the most enchanting cities in Europe that we’ve been to so far, Prague. Does exploring history-filled streets, vibrant culture, and picturesque landscapes sound like the trip you’re looking for? I think Prague is an ideal destination for a memorable weekend trip. Here’s a re-cap of our trip, with the must-see sights!

The Charm of Prague’s Old Town

Prague’s Old Town, with its cobbled streets and historic architecture, is a true gem. Wander through the medieval alleys, and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time!

Exploring the Astronomical Clock

One of the highlights of the Old Town Square is the astronomical clock. I had no idea what this was when we first got here but saw a crowd and got interested. Turns out, this intricate clock not only tells the time but also includes an astronomical side as well. Be sure to catch the hourly show – it’s a must-see.

The Prague Castle

Perched on a hill overlooking the city, Prague Castle is stunning from near and far. It’s not just a single castle but a complex of historic buildings, including the stunning St. Vitus Cathedral.

St. Vitus Cathedral

Step inside St. Vitus Cathedral and prepare to be awestruck by its towering columns, stained glass windows (gorgeous), and intricate sculptures. The climb to the top of the cathedral rewards you with amazing views of the city too!

Charles Bridge and Vltava River

No visit to Prague is complete without crossing the iconic Charles Bridge. As you stroll along this 14th-century marvel, you’ll be treated to stunning views of the Vltava River, the Prague Castle, and the city’s skyline.

A Romantic Sunset on Charles Bridge

For a truly magical experience, visit the bridge at sunset. The warm hues of the setting sun casting a golden glow on the river make for an unforgettable moment <3

THE FOOD: Czech Cuisine

Exploring Prague’s foodie scene is a must. Indulge in traditional Czech dishes like goulash, trdelník (a sweet pastry), sausages, and the famous Pilsner beer.

Dining at a Local Tavern

For an authentic experience, dine at a local tavern. The hearty food (beware – haha) and cozy ambiance will make you feel like a true Czech.

Pro Tip: Try to find places away from the most popular tourist zones. Quieter, cheaper, and more local vibes vs. tourist. And always make sure to check the Google ratings!

Discovering Prague’s Hidden Gems

While Prague’s main attractions are well-known and need to be crossed off your list, leave time for some hidden gems waiting to be uncovered.

The John Lennon Wall

Tucked away in a quiet corner, the John Lennon Wall is a symbol of peace and love. Visitors are encouraged to leave their own messages of hope and inspiration.

Prague’s unique blend of history, culture, and beauty makes it an ideal destination for a weekend trip. Whether you’re exploring the historic Old Town, admiring the sheer grandeur of Prague Castle, or enjoying delicious Czech cuisine, this trip will not disappoint!
