My holidays in beautiful Prague

I went to Prague to visit my sister who lives there. It wasn't my first time in the city but it was a great idea to experience it with someone who actually lives there and shows you some local places.

    Prague is a beautiful city with stunning architecture

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Maybe try to go in the first half of September rather than the end of September. Unless you don't mind a bit of bad weather and rain.

  • How was the food?

    - Etapa - best place for breakfast/lunch in Prague but book a table in advance or be prepared for a long wait - Pekárna Praktika - top bakery! If you're a lover of bread, you're going to want to sink your teeth into their breads and pastries. Check for opening times before you go - Bistro Monk - cool spot for breakfast or lunch in the city centre - Version Coffee - very cool cafe close to the National Museum, nice interior design and excellent specialty coffee

  • Packing tips?

    Bring comfy shoes and an umbrella just in case.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Prague has excellent public transport so take advantage of that. Also, it's pretty walkable if you like walking. I didn't take buses but if you are up for a tram ride they are fast and reliable. You can buy tickets inside trams, there are little machines where you purchase tickets (payment only by card).

Lodging

  • My sister's apartment in Vinohrady. Vinohrady is a great neighbourhood as it is very close to the city centre and the Old Town but it's also a lovely and lively place with many great restaurants and cafes around.
