If you follow me on Instagram (and I can only suggest to do that ;p) you already know I’ve recently been in Prague to visit my little cousin – who’s not that little anymore – who’s doing an internship there.
You can reach the castle by foot or take an old fashion tram. I would suggest this second option and then you can go back to the city centre by foot, as the hill is quite steeply plus the walk till the castle is quite long and, trust me, you’re gonna walk quite a lot inside the castle as well.
Little time-saver tip: to buy tram tickets, you need to go in a subway station.
The interior is huge
But the noise of the huge crowd of tourists took some of the pleasure of the visit away.
That’s probably why I preferred Saint George basilica. The monument is clearly less impressive
but it was empty from tourists, resulting in a very peaceful & charming place.
I wandered around the courtyard and south gardens…
To arrive to the Old Royal Palace. I expected a Versailles style place, but instead I surprisingly found quite austere rooms.
I continued with Golden Lane a colorful alley, which didn’t impress me much, probably, again, because of all the tourists.
I finished with the upper & lower gardens, which was what I preferred. As always & not surprisingly I’m more an outdoor girl.
I’ve spent so many time wandering around the gardens that, before I could realize, it was 6pm and the guardians made me get out.
Where we share the biggest skewers I’ve ever seen and a typical beef dish with a raspberry sauce and bread dumplings.
And one (or two) enormous beer… we’re in Prague after all! Chatting & laughing until tiredness won us (and we realized we were the only clients left, but waiters were too nice to tell us something)!
Not resisting to take a last few snaps on the way home…
But hey Prague at night is very charming (and empty of tourists!!).
Plus I was enjoying being with someone that takes almost as many pics as I do instead of hubby that usually sighs every time I take my camera (please, tell me I’m not the only one!) ;))
