Prague in photos

Back in November me and boyfriend decided to jet off to Prague for a few days for a little break. It's a city I was hearing more and more about and with its gothic buildings, cheap beer and lots to see I can definitely see why it's becoming a popular place to visit. We both loved this city a lot more than we expected to and had such a good time there, doing as much as we could in the time we had.

For the three nights we were there, we stayed in the lovely Jalta boutique Hotel. It was situated on Wenceslas square, one of Prague's two main squares, the other being Old Town. It's a lot bigger and busier than Old Town square, filled with lots of shops and restaurants, but I liked being in the hustle and bustle of it all. It was also in walking distance from most places we wanted to see and less than a 10 minute walk from Old Town square.

On our first day there we were enticed into doing a Segway tour. It wasn't something I was particular interested in but my boyfriend was desperate to have a go, so we did and I had a lot more fun than I'd like to admit. It only took me five minutes before I felt like a pro and was hitting speed whizzing around the streets. It was a great way to get around the city and gave us a rough idea of the layout, so for the rest of the trip we had a better idea of where we were going.

I always prefer seeing a place by foot as I feel it allows you to experience it better and you see so much more. So after snooping around the Christmas markets, absorbing the busy atmosphere and sampling some yummy food (I recommend trying a Trdelnik with Nutella) we started making our way towards Charles Bridge. The bridge itself is beautiful, with lots of striking statues and certain parts supposedly bringing you good luck if you touch it. You also get a nice view of the river and the town so it offers lots of good photo opportunities.


We continued our way over the bridge and walked through the colourful cobbled streets up towards the castle. It was quite a long walk and steep at times but once at that top we were greeted by an amazing view of the whole city. 

We spent some time walking around the castle grounds and took a look inside the cathedral. The cathedral was beautiful and I'm a sucker for some good architecture. I loved its gothic look on the outside and its beautiful stained glass windows.

The walk back from the castle was beautiful, it was dark at this point so it was a lovely way to see the city all lit up. After taking a few snaps we decided we needed to warm up so made a stop to the Hemingway Bar.

Tucked down a little side street, this old style bar offered up an array of delicious sounding cocktails. I was spoiled for choice and wanted to try them all. Unfortunately I couldn't burden David with the task of carrying me all the way back to the hotel, so I had our waiter pick me a few he thought I'd enjoy...and I did. I loved the warm cosy atmosphere in this bar, a nice contrast to being out in the cold all day. The staff here were lovely and it was all table service which added to the whole experience. I'd definitely recommend visiting here as the cocktails where amazing and not too expensive which is a plus. 

It was such a lovely trip and I couldn't of asked for a better time. I have a Prague Guide post coming very soon and hopefully a video of my trip too.

Anyone planning a trip to this beautiful city anytime soon?
