I had been dying to visit Prague ever since I can remember! Something about the city is so intriguing – as soon as you step foot on the cobblestone streets, you can tell that there is so much history around. Situated along the Vltava River, Prague offers a view into the gothic soul of Bohemia.
As the capital of the Czech Republic and the 14th largest city in Europe, Prague is no stranger to tourism and has become known for its medieval beauty and charm. It has been nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” and you’ll see why when you spot dozens of ancient churches.
With only a few days to explore Prague, we quickly set off to see as much as we could.
One of the highlights of our trip was waking up at dawn to stroll along the Charles Bridge and take in sunrise over the river with hardly anyone awake (except for a few early risers and some club goers just getting home!).
Along with its history, the city is chocked full of art galleries, cute cafes and gothic underground pubs serving some of the best beer in Europe. No visit to Prague is complete without enjoying one of their famous beers (did you know the Czech Republic consumes the most beer per capita?!) and filling up on some local Czech food. I couldn’t help but try a different trdelník each day of our trip!
