Welcome to part 2, of my Special Extra on Prague!
In part 1, I gave some general information about the city. In this part, I will give some more specific suggestions about what to do, what to eat and what to drink while you are there. Again, this is not a tourist guide -just my suggestions, based on what we did during this trip to Prague. 🙂
Let us start!
What to do:
Prague is full of surprises! As I have mentioned in the previous post, it is a city full of contrasts. There are so many different activities to pursue, according to your individual taste. Here are some of the things we did/places we visited this time, and we absolutely loved:
1. Visit the Old Town (Stare Mesto)
2. Admire the Church of Our Lady before Týn
3. The Astronomical clock
4. Charles bridge
5. The Jewish quarter
6. The Petrin hill
7. The Chinese garden
8. The Carpathian Ruthenian Church of the Saint Michael Archangel
9. Kampa Park
10. Franz Kafka museum
11. Mala strana
12. The Dancing house
What to eat:
The Czech cuisine shares many similarities with the Slovak cuisine, so if you are a fan of the second, you will love the first one, too.
Two traditional dishes that we tried and loved are the Roasted duck with cabbage and dumplings & the Beef sirloin with cream sauce and dumplings. These are a standard in almost all of the traditional Czech restaurants. Don’t forget to pair them up with a glass of good beer, for a true Czech cuisine experience!
In Prague you can find Cuisines from all over the world, so no matter what you are looking for, you will find it here. If the road takes you to the “other side of the river”, don’t forget to visit the Tapas Bar Miró, for a true Spanish experience. 😉
[On the other hand, if you are up to fast food, there is a wide range of well-known fast food chains: Burger King, McDonalds, KFC e.t.c..]
What to drink:
Beer. Beer. More beer. There is a huge variety here, so if you are a beer lover, Prague will be your Heaven.
Just a quick note. Water can be very expensive here, so it’s a good idea to carry a big water bottle around.
I hope you enjoyed this post and that you got some good ideas for your next trip in Prague. A few days are definitely not enough to see everything -not even a tiny bit, actually. We are looking forward to visit it again and explore even more parts of the city.
Stay tuned for the part 3 of my Special Extra on Prague. Soon.
Note: Again, big thanks to my awesome photographer, VCH. You rock! ^^
