IMG_3376

All my friends from all over the world were asking me the same question! If I would please write something about my home town. Prague is a very popular getaway, so here I am, happy to share with YOU all the best of the best from my 25 year experience in Prague.

  • 1. Wenceslas Square

    At the top of the square YOU can see the State Museum and the Statue of St. Vaclav (this is a very popular place for blind dates 😀 ) then YOU can enjoy the vast numbers of shops or head off to Duplex Restaurant where YOU can sit on the terrace and enjoy an aperitif with the panoramic view over all Wenceslav square, Or YOU can enjoy an Ice cream from a typical czech sweet shop “Hajek” in the hidden Frantiskanska garden. It is So amazing to be able to enjoy a peaceful time while sitting on the bench and taking it easy in the middle of Prague!

Most of the time while walking in Prague, my head is facing up to be able to see all those painting and the outstanding architecture. So YES everything always depends on the way we look at things.

  • 6. Enjoy a Paddle boat

    A fun activity while the Sun is shining in beloved Prague! We usually buy some refreshments first and then while paddling and sunbathing we are sipping a cold drink while seeing the magical architecture in Prague from the river Vltava. Usually it is also a great opportunity to meet some other people on the paddle boats and have a pleasant chat!

  • 7. Gardens & Parks

     Riegrovovy garden – or Letna park or Havlickovy sady * (Grebovka) those places are top of the top! YOU can enjoy a sunset while watching Prague castle and holding a great czech beer. Most of the expats living in Prague have moved to Prague 2 and 3 to have those parks close by. I used to love going there after work for a picknic with a friends. The is a cheap and fun way to spend a lazy afternoon.

“Prague never lets you go… this dear little mother has sharp claws” – Franz Kafka

During my last visit I walked and have seen most of those places on my list in one day. Approximately a 4 km walk, YOU can always take public transport in between the places but I just enjoyed walking .. Because let’s face it – what an amazing walk! I always love returning to Prague and watching and enjoying all of the beautiful places like I am seeing them for the first time.

“Once destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things” – Henry Miller

Let me know, how YOU enjoyed my town!
