A Photo Essay: Prague, Czech Republic

Oh, how I wish we had more time to spend in Prague. We fell in love with the city and a day and a half was nowhere near enough time to spend there.

We stayed for two nights and paid with points for a free stay at the stylish Park Inn that was built inside of an old print house. The hotel was located near the river, but a bit of a walk or a short tram ride from all the action of the city.

When we arrived to our hotel it was getting late–we were starving and just wanted a convenient dinner, so we asked for recommendations of restaurants nearby. The receptionist gets a gold star for her suggestion of a restaurant called U Kroka located a few blocks away. It was here that we had another one of our all time top meals ever. And, we were astonished at the total price of our bill–we weren’t shy with our ordering, and the total came to about $28 after the tip. I guess we forgot how inexpensive Eastern Europe can be, and although I know we could have eaten for even cheaper, we would still head back there in a heartbeat!

Besides the meal that we obviously can’t stop raving about, the rest of our time in the city was spent wandering around and soaking up the sights. I loved the colors and architecture of all the buildings and couldn’t stop exclaiming how much I loved this city. We walked around Old Town, across Charles Bridge, to the Prague Castle and along every tiny street we could find. Another treat we indulged in was the insanely thick and delicious hot chocolate at Café Kafíčko. It tasted almost like a melted chocolate bar and was heavenly. Ok, I better get to the photos now because I’m about ready to hop on a plane and head back just from reminiscing! Here are our photos from a dreary, but still perfect day in Prague.

    Your photos are stunning– particularly the one of the Charles Bridge, what time did you get there to get it so empty?!

    Did you see the Lennon Wall? It’s my favourite part of the city, I am always interested in seeing people’s photo’s of that to see how it’s changed and evolved since I last saw it, which will be a year ago this summer.

      Thanks, Sammi! We were there in the early evening–it was surprisingly pretty quiet! We missed out on the Lennon Wall, unfortunately. Will have to add it to the list for next time. Sounds like a great spot!

    Prague is definitely on my radar and your pictures show a glimpse of what a fantastic city it is! I like the photo of the bubble 🙂 We saw lots of people in Italy making huge bubbles in some of the piazzas, too! That dinner also sounds like a really good deal.

    Such a lovely photos! It’s been a long time since I visited Prague. That was with my brother and parents about ten years ago. I remember that I liked it very much and that I found the bridge very impressive for some reason 🙂

    Prague is so incredibly beautiful. We returned to Prague last month after a 10 year gap – and loved it even more the second time round! It is simply stunning!

    It easily rates in my top 3 European cities and is a city that I will keep going back to again and again.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!

    Prague is gorgeous! I’ve been there various times and I’d still love to go back each time. Esp. the old town (been a few years though) and the small bars they have … def one of my fave cities in Europe!

      It’s one of our favorite towns, too! I’m thinking we need to check out some of the small bars next time! 🙂

    I was in Prague 2 or 3 years ago. I remember we walked so much the first day mesmerized by all the beauty that the 2nd day we hardly could get up out of bed. Hihi 🙂

    Jenna,
    Wow, this is a great article. We were in Prague 2 years ago, and while words can’t always describe the beauty of a destination – You did a pretty amazing job!
    And oh yeah – these amazing photos sure didn’t hurt. Prague is an amazing European city, possibly one of the best!
