5 Reasons Prague is the perfect destination for a broke student
Share This Article:
Climb the stairs to a magical castle, eat cinnamon donuts encased with ice cream, drink the darkest beer you've ever had and be surrounded by beautiful buildings with a backdrop of rolling green hills. Prague is a city with a difference, not just because drugs are legal and liquor is cheap - but because it's like stepping back in time with plenty of amazing experiences on your doorstep. Here is why your next student break should be spent in the Czech Republic. 1. Walk around… for free Much of Prague’s beauty is in the historical buildings of Old Town. Once I arrived at PLUS Prague Hostel my roommate told me, “rule number one of Prague: never look down”, and she was completely right. The pretty pastels of the tall houses around the city will steal your heart and the medieval feel of the castle constantly peering down at you will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. Use your feet and your eyes, it’s completely free! 2. Take a tour… for free As with many cities in Europe you can hop on a FREE walking tour multiple times a day. There are so many different ones running, mainly from the astronomical clock in Old Town Square. I recommend going with ‘SANDEMANs NEW EUROPE’, I’ve taken many of their tours in different cities, including Amsterdam, and the guides are always hilarious and so knowledgeable. It will last about three hours and all you do is chose how much to tip the guide at the end of the tour, try to be reasonable here but of course you can make the afternoon work to your budget. Win, win!
