Must-do things in Prague for the first Timers!

Prague: The Paris of Eastern Europe

Prague (or Praha), the capital of Czech Republic, is an outstanding city! 

Prague’s Old Town Square is the heart of the city that remained almost untouched since the 12th century. The most important sights are the Jan Hus statue in the middle of the square, the Old Town Hall Tower and the Tyn Church. The square is full of musicians and vendors and it has its incredible atmosphere!

The boat ride with Prague Boats under the Charles Bridge along the water of Vitava river is the most beautiful and fun ride. The city by night is absolutely marvelous! Walk along the river front and admire the illuminated buildings and, of course, walk the Charles Bridge when there is almost no one there.

Vintage car tours was the best part of the tour. I had a wonderful time with family and informative driver. It helped us especially to het background of the city and its attractions, so that more detailed exploration could follow.

Also, Did you know Czechs hold a proud number 1 place in the world of beer consumption per capita? No wonder, their beer is so good! And also cheap, often it is even cheaper than a bottle of water! 😉

The Brewery and Restaurant U Fleků in Prague is one of the most famous and most visited Czech cultural sights, such as the Prague Castle, Old Town Square, Vyšehrad, the Jewish Town or the National Museum. This place a pilgrimage site for all beer lovers. The place quite touristic, a lot of traditional music and local cuisine.

One of your biggest travel expenses and time-consuming tasks is booking accommodation, and we all want to save time and hopefully some money when searching for deals online.

Whilst there are plenty of websites these days to help you search for accommodation, some are more trustworthy than others, and some are easier to navigate than others.

1. Booking.com:

I’m sure you are already familiar with Booking.com, they are my all time favourite with lot of different types of accommodation you can book on their website: Hotels, Apartments, Resorts,  Villas,  B&B and Guesthouses.

In my opinion, not only are they are the best hotel booking site, but the best accommodation website.

And if the above options aren’t enough for your style or budget, you can even book Lodges, chalets, luxury tents, campsites and more.

  1. Some great photos and nice write-up has given us memories of our family visit last April. We travelled to Prague after a week in Budapest but made the mistake of doing it over a weekend ……. so if you don’t want to be surrounded by Hen and Stag parties ……. avoid!
