Stop #3 on our 2 week Europe Road Trip and one I was super intrigued by because EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON. we either spoke to or overheard talking about Europe who had gone to Prague all said it was their favorite city in Europe. 

So with curiosity high, we arrived a little confused. It was a pretty European city alright, but nothing we could see what all the hype was about. 

It wasn’t until late at night around did we discover the romantic, cobblestone city that captured the hearts of everyone before us!.

Our time here was too short and we definitely need to come back and re-do Prague. Just looking back at all our trip photos I was a little surprised at how beautiful the photos in Prague are!

Our favorite things about Praha:

1.  Best beer we had in all of Europe!

Surprise, Surprise! Josh had high hopes for the German beers and was left disappointed in this arena. When we arrived to Praha, the only beer on their menu in most places was the Pilsner Urquell. Pilsners might be one of the least popular beers where we come from in Portland, Oregon so the only reason we ordered it was because it was the only option. But Wow! I have never had a more buttery & creamy beer that wasn’t meant to be buttery and creamy! We were obsessed. So much so that we bought some to last the rest of our trip. Sadly though, it was not even half as good out of the bottle.

2.  Charles Bridge

I knew this was a top tourist destination and as someone who loves bridges and has seen many a beautiful bridges, I wasn’t expecting anything extra spectacular. But I LOVED this bridge. It was wide and cobblestone and had music and vendors and beautiful statues along the side and started and ended with beautiful archway towers that lead to more magical-ness! I’ve never had a favorite bridge before this one!

3.  Friendliness

Of all the cities we were in, the people of Praha were by far the friendliest to us American Tourists. It was refreshing to have some grace extended upon our weary traveling souls.

4.  Cobblestone Streets

I can’t stop talking about the cobblestone. Am I the only one who loves cobblestone? So many of their actual streets (not just alleyways) were fully cobblestone and I couldn’t be happier just seeing that.

5.  Prague is Affordable! 

Food and Drinks especially were much more reasonably priced than all the other places in Europe. Especially the beer!

QUICK TIPS:

1. If you are looking for these romantic streets, head straight to Old town. I recommend heading towards the Charles Bridge. That’s a great central place to start.

The reason we took so long to find this charming area is because I wanted to avoid the crowds. Little did I know that the best of Prague was in fact all around this Bridge.

2. Maybe it’s because I have a slight obsession with clocks but we almost skipped the Astronomical Clock because I read everywhere that it was overrated. Thanks to such low expectations I thought it was so beautiful! We missed the “show” that happens at every hour (which is supposed to be the overrated part) but so glad I got to see this work of art!
