Prague is a central city of Europe and therefore a “must-have” addition to any European city hop journey. Though it is an amazing city where most visitors are foreign students who like to spend half a year on location to fully explore the city, Prague is relatively concentrated in size and it is possible to cram its highlights in a 48-hour venture into the old bohemian capital.
Start out with a bang and spend your morning at the Old Town Square. You’ll have plenty to do until lunch kicks in. Climb the tower to take panoramic snapshots of the city, wait for the medieval clock to go off, admire the gothic church and the square’s frequent markets before finally sitting down for a coffee to refuel your sightseeing stamina.
Get your Jew on in the afternoon and visit the famous Jewish cemetery and the handful of synagogues that have been very well preserved.
Head south to Zizkov, an area full of bars and restaurants around the Zizkov tower, which is special not only because of its design but because of the artistic addition of the babies climbing on the tower.
Grab a drink in Akropolis, a multi-room bar/club in Zizkov.
After a quick hop at Bohemia Bagel, you’ll feel fueled up and ready to attack New Town on the other side of the Vlatva. Contrary to what its name indicates, New Town hold many of the most beautiful and old monuments of Prague.
Let the Prague Castle take your breath away and walk through the Golden Alley, a street with small houses, one of which was once inhabited by the writer Franz Kafka. For the photography buffs, the best part of New Town is to climb to its highest point and to immortalize Prague’s most beautiful panoramic views.
Cross the Vlatva again and enjoy the new additions to Prague’s architecture. You’ve probably noticed it from your New Town summit, the Fred and Ginger monument was erected to mimic the fluidity and suppleness of the dancing American Stars.
Then end the day with a nice sunset walk in the Vyšehrad Park. It’s the biggest one in Prague. You’ll have your ‘pivo’ ready and waiting for you at U Sudu, back in the heart of Prague. It’s a real pleasure to unwind at this laid-back bar.
