Student City Guide: Prague
Share This Article:
Using a Eurolines 30 day pass, I travelled to Prague this summer and spent three days wandering around the often underrated cobbled streets and old town, as well as indulging in the many treats the restaurants of the Czech capital had to offer. Culture The Old Town Square of Prague was the first stop for us on our visit, with the astronomical clock tower being a highlight due to the figures surrounding the clock face coming alive on the hour. Altough we arrived very early in the morning, by lunchtime the square had a real buzz to it as it was filled with street artists, food stalls and horse and carriages. We took the cheaper option to see Prague and went on a one hour tour on the miniature train, which allowed us to see the main attractions along the way. The English audio guide on board meant that we learnt more about the city than we would have done by simply walking around, and could sit back and relax in the lovely weather. Except for the day when we had to carry our heavy rucksacks up the steep, cobbled street to get to our hostel, the street leading up to the castle and palace is something to really look forward to. Souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants line the route up to the top, and you will definitely not be disappointed when you get there. The castle gardens which are free to enter offer a great vantage point over the city and are a lovely place to sit and enjoy a picnic. The changing of the guard outside the palace is also a sight definitely not to be missed.
