Prague, Czech Republic

PRAGUE! I don’t need if it is because I lived here for 8 weeks or what, but this city holds a special place in my heart. The first day I got to Prague I was all by myself and spent the day exploring the city. I went for a run through the most beautiful park and just tried to take everything in. The apartment I was living in was located in Prague7, which meant I had to take the metro every morning to get to class. This took about ten minutes every day. The public transportation is super convenient and can get you anywhere in the city (you do have to watch out for pickpocketers though).

Prague is a hidden treasure in Europe. Above the city sits the worlds largest castle, which contains museums, gardens, and palaces. It is truly a fairy tale. The culture involves eating tons of great food and drinking beer during all times of the day. It’s a very good time, to say the least.

Here is a rundown of how things worked for me in Praha.

Transportation:

  • Walk
  • Metro
  • Tram
  • Uber

Okay, I’m not going to lie to you, I had a hard time finding food in Prague. Yes, there are a ton of options but most of those meals are very heavy. There are like zero salads anywhere in the city. Most of the time I ended up going grocery shopping and would just cook my own meals. When I did go out though, here is a list of my favorite restaurants.

Food:

  • Radost
  • Maitrea
  • Amuni
  • Lemon Leaf
  • U Pinkasu
  • The Tavern
  • Bistro 8 – yummy healthy brunch
  • Cobra – great for drinks
  • Café Pavlac
  • Bakeshop

Clubs:

  • Retro
  • Lucerna
  • Karlovy Lazne

  • Roxy
  • Sasazu

Bars:

  • Dog Bar
  • Anonymous Bar
  • usudu
  • Placebo

Sights:

  • Charles Bridge
  • Old-Town Square
  • John-Lennon Wall
  • Dancing House

Activities

  • Paddle boats on the river
  • Letna Beer Garden
  • Pub Crawl
  • Sparta Soccer Game
