Europe Vacation: Prague

teeteeiswithme Prague_0I am currently sitting in Trastevere Rome listening to the bustle of Piazza di San Calisto taking a breather from drinking wine, eating a lot and walking around taking in the magnificent history that is Rome, to make sure that I write up a blog post on the magical city of Prague before I forget any little bits of detail.

Prague really stole my heart in a completely cheesy way. All the things that I thought wouldn’t particularly move me about Prague did. All the old buildings, castles, bridges, towers etc I had decided would be of no interest to me given that I had seen them all in epic pictures in books and on Google blindsided me and left me completely in love with Prague. Kind of like when a friendzoned boy surprises you by escaping from the friendzone area by charming the pants off you. I was charmed to say the least.

The apartment we were staying in was literally around the corner from Old Town Square, one of two main squares in Prague. Filled with tourists at every hour of the day to photograph and visit Tyn Church, The Astronomical Clock, Old Town Hall Tower, St Nicholas Church and the Jan Hus statue which sits at the centre of the square, Old Town Square is really magnificently beautiful, but hard to appreciate when filled with masses of people. Regardless it is still better on all counts than visiting Wenceslas Square – the other main square in Prague – which just had a very “all the things one doesn’t enjoy about Times Square in New York City” feel about it.

Besides all the beautiful tourist attractions (which you can Google yourself), Prague continued to court me with its reasonably priced but crazy delicious cuisine, intense beer drinking culture, amazing wine and great service. In my post on how I booked this trip to Europe, I mentioned that one of the pros of booking with Airbnb was that you get some really great local insiders tips of places to dine and drink from hosts. Our phenomenal eating and drinking experiencing, which I will write about in my next post (because Tumi Mohale, insists that this post is too long) has to be completely credited to our hosts Monika and Jaroslav because we went to almost every single one of their recommended spots and we were not disappointed.teeteeiswithme Prague_1 teeteeiswithme Prague_10 teeteeiswithme Prague_9 teeteeiswithme Prague_8 teeteeiswithme Prague_7 teeteeiswithme Prague_6 teeteeiswithme Prague_5 teeteeiswithme Prague_4 teeteeiswithme Prague_3 teeteeiswithme Prague_2
