Czech Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself ๐Ÿ˜‹

Prague is an absolutely amazing city. Walking through it makes you feel like you have completely stepped back in time. Unlike cities like Rome which are steeped in history and covered in ancient ruins, Prague appears as if it has been untouched for centuries. It’s streets are fairytale-esque, covered in cobble stones and brilliant architecture.

It isn’t something I have ever done before, nor is it something I would have considered had it not been for my friends – but we decided to go on a Segway tour of the city. We took an hour long tour that was filled with constant laughter trying not to hurt ourselves on these crazy things while simultaneously seeing the city. I would honestly really recommend doing it because it’s a great way to see the city while having a laugh with your friends!

The nightlife is where Prague gets really crazy. A popular destination for stag parties, the place wasย crawling with people out for a good time. With the drink half the price of what you would pay normally, it was hard not to drink twice as much to compensate! I have also never been somewhere that encouraged you so strongly to dance on tables, chairs – pretty much anything above floor level! One bar which I would recommend is Harley’ Bar in Old Town, an alternative venue with bartenders holding fire shows, cocktail making shows, etc! Another place to try is Karlovy Lรกzne a five story night club (the biggest in central Europe) that has different music on every floor meaning there is something there for everyone. It is a small bit more expensive than the other venues in Prague but it still doesn’t compare to the prices of drink elsewhere.

The one tip I would give it because places are open so late and drink is so cheap (especially absinthe.. if you enjoy keeping your memories then steer clear!) try not to get carried away because the hangover will eat into your sight seeing time! You gotta czech yourself before your wreck yourselfย ๐Ÿ˜Ž a few more things to mention: Try their unique pastry ‘Trdelnik’ for a really nice treat (as seen in the photography below with a big portion of ice cream!), for shopping hit upย Wenceslas Square where you will find all the big and familiar brands, The Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square is cool but very anti climactic considering the crowd it draws, Charles Bridge is beautiful and the view from it is great but the crowds along it are very big so be careful of your belongings as you cross, Prague has the biggest Lego Museum in the world (a whole floor dedicated to Star Wars might I add!) and they have segway tours and boat cruises which are two great ways to enjoy the city! At first I thought there was not much to do in Prague but really the views never stop.. Overall I found it was an amazing city and in the sunshine it is somewhere that can not be topped! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

If anyone has been to Prague, let me know what you thought about the city and whether or not you enjoyed your stay! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I miss Prague so much! I did my Erasmus exchange there 5 years ago and so many memories popped up, and I still feel I left so much to do and see. One place I love that is a bit less touristic is the old castle (Vysherad), the view there reminded me somewhat of Lisbon and is different from the main castle. I should come back but still did not have the chance. Great post and your feelings are generally my feelings about the main attractions =)

      1. You definitely need to come to Lisbon and see other things in Portugal too, you won’t be disappointed =) I also have Ireland in my bucket list for long and hope to make it there soon and I’ll check your blog for tips ๐Ÿ˜‰ keep going!

  2. I’ve been to Prague three times and it is my favorite European city (Ireland takes the top prize for favorite country!). You are right, the views never stop in Prague and there is so much to see but the best thing is to just get lost in the city. Ah, the thought of meandering down the narrow alleyways and marveling at the architecture bring a smile to my face.

  3. Wonderful article, I so enjoyed reading it ๐Ÿ™‚ I love Prague but I never thought of exploring it on a Segway! I will be sure to try that next time I visit though ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Love the title! We are going to Prague for the first time in September. Thanks for all the recommendations. We will have a toddler with us, so unfortunately we will miss out on the nightlife, but can’t wait to see this beautiful city!

Let Me Know Your Thoughts!
