I went in 3 day weekend Trip with my friend to Prague last year. I was really exited because I hear so much about how Cool the city was, nice place to go hard partying and also was pretty cheaper than other EU-Cities. So I embraced this Idea, booked an Airbnb room that seem quite nice Quartier. Later to find out it was indeed near the Center but access were quite demanding of physical conditions (up and down hill every day).
Old Town (Stare Mesto) - Its the most popular area. There are many shops, restaurantes and its near Charles bridge that is really a must-see in the city. I would totally recommend to go afternoon and stay nearby to see the sunset.
Prague Castle - It's huge and you need a lot of time to walk all around. I would recommend to start a day going to the Castle and later of the day finishing at Old Town to see the sunset, have a beer nearby or Dinner. Some people hired segways to move faster and dont get tired.
John Lehnnon Wall - Its quite small actually and its a wall outside a building that seems like a small garden. A lot of people waiting to get their selfies and some Artists try to sell you some instant photoart for you. you need around 30 min or less there...depending how demanding you are with your pictures.
Near the Old Town Hall there are the Astronomical Clock. We were there before Easter and there were many street foods courts and markets near. There are a lot of people trying to get a photo..so its quite difficult to make a Portrait without loads of people in the background. The streets nearby are cool and there are a lot of shops to check the local Art.
Petrin Hill is a Tower where you can see all the city from up. if the Sun shine..you an lay down in the garden nearby and have one italian icecream just down the tower. We went from a back of a Garden and walked up until the Petrin tower and view are quite great in the way even if you dont go up in the Tower.
Dancing House. I thought it would be a pretty nice building like the Gaudi one in Barelona...but its quite odd compared to the Prague archihteture. Seems like someone twisted it and put there, where it dont belongs. Bridges nearby arenie and the quartier too. Its a really pleasant walk because there are not so many tourists.
Got it all in 3 days and still have time:
- Hunger Wall
- Seven Foot Sigmund Freud (photo below)
- Jerusalem Synagogue
- Kafka Monuments
- New Town
Prague is a great Destination to young people to part and chill out in one of many garden and hills. Beer is heaper than in Germany and there are many free and cultural activities. if you an try to taste local gastronomy. Delicious.
