Classic Prague in Two Hundred Words

prague 031

Prague is a heartache of a city; you’ll have to beat off hordes of camera toting tourists before you fall over yourself in love with place but once you do, you’ll begin a truly committed relationship and vow to explore every street, each one more enchanting than the last.
Central Station chose the cute as a button Clementin Hotel for the occasion but it left us a little short on cash when we stopped by a Medovina stall at the Christmas markets. Maybe the much fabled Sir Tobys Hostel would have been thriftier.
Now that Spring is upon the city, seize the opportunity to wander through Classic Prague; shuffle down Charles Bridge, meander through Malastrana and then huff and puff your way up to the Castle. Drop coins in the hats of street entertainers on your way to catch the metro to Vysherad for storybook rooftop views.
For a Tea Stop, go to Slavia and make a beeline for the seat with the quintessential Prague view. It’s in the corner, on the right, at the back, next to a window. You’ll see Prague Castle perched on a hilltop and a tram or two should roll past your window. Spot on.

    What about other beautiful Prague Tea rooms like most famouse Good Tearoom, By the Golden Rooster and others :-)?

    • Oooh, thanks for the tips! I don’t actually live in Prague, I live in Tabor, so I think I’ve gotten a little lazy and always go to my favourite Slavia corner. I will be sure to pass an hour or two in these soon!
