Prague is my favourite city in Europe after Barcelona. It’s enchanting, warm and welcoming and so perfect for a quick city break. My friends and I popped to Prague in November and it was spectacular. Imagine golden leaves rustling under the feet, Gothic church spires and the chilling Charles Bridge in the dark… it’s not amazing, it’s magical!
Walking the streets of Prague
We walked the city for 3 days and never got bored. There’s so much to see and do. From the narrow cobbled streets in the Old Town, to the wonderful churches and cathedrals.
The city is incredibly atmospheric with so much history and heritage. Loved the Prague Astronomical Clock. It’s the oldest still working astronomical clock in the world.
The St. Vitus Cathedral in the city centre looked especially eerie in the fog. Even though I wished it was clear blue skies, I think the rain and the grey clouds added so much drama and darkness to this biggest Gothic style cathedral in the country.
Paying a visit to the famous Charles Bridge later in the dark is a must thing to do when visiting Prague.
Along the river Vltava
When we got tired of walking, we took a river boat and cruised Vltava, the longest river in the country. The boat, by the way, was completely empty so we had it all to ourselves. The joys of visiting cities out of peak season. Hot tea topped with a slice of lemon in hand we were trying to take in all the majestic sights of the city.
Žižkov Television Tower
To end our visit, we made our way to the very unique Žižkov Television Tower for a drink and some panoramic views across Prague. The tower with ‘crawling’ babies was completed in 1992 and is considered an example of high-tech architecture. The installation of ‘crawling’ babies was permanently added to the tower in 2001.
I’d really love to come back to Prague and explore it all over again.
