Prague

28 Oct

I’m curious to know about other travelers first experience in Prague. To be completely honest, I’m not entirely sure I’d go back. All the sites were absolutely beautiful. And there were moments where I was truly in awe of its rich history. I can understand why so many people love exploring the city. I guess maybe I didn’t spend enough time there to fully realize it’s charm?

To be fair, we were there less than 24 hours. And two things happened that left a sour taste in my mouth. We were fined on the metro system without a good explanation, and my Fitbit was lost or stolen. Either way, it wasn’t fun. I think I was more upset that all my steps weren’t accounted for because we did a TON of walking. But enough ranting, let me tell you about the parts I did like.

We took an evening train from Berlin and arrived around 10-ish, enough time to check in to our hotel and grab a beer. I haven’t explored why, but beer is really cheap in Prague. Also, shout out to the train systems in Europe. As Sheldon Cooper would say, “Ooh, I love trains!”

The next morning we wandered a few hours taking in the city. Because we were there such a short time, we booked a tour through Discover Prague Tours. We were given so much information by our guide, and by the end I could have done with a little less. However, the tour had a ton of value for its low price and was definitely worth it. Highlights included exploring the monasteries, a brewery stop, stunning views of the Castle District and St. Vitus Cathedral.

We finished at the castle gate facing the city, and had enough time to grab a snack and catch the train home. So maybe I didn’t give Prague its do justice, or maybe it just wasn’t for me. I’m glad I visited there, and who knows, if enough time fades I might give it a second chance.
