Postcards from Prague

Prague is one of the most picturesque place I’ve ever been. It’s like being transported into a Disney movie with their beautiful, fairy-tale buildings.

I thought Prague Castle was the thing sticking up on the hill – nope that’s St Vitus Cathedral and it is probably the most worthwhile thing to see when you are up there. We got the Prague Castle (Circuit A) but it was all pretty boring except for the Cathedral. The palace itself were just empty old room and nothing too flash about them.

St Vitus Cathedral was one of the most beautiful cathedrals I had visited on my trip. Huge with Gothic architecture and gargoyles decorated everywhere.

Oh and I forgot to mention – segways. Seways everywhere!

Prague is a tourist city – I never saw one local during my few days here. The Old Town had only souvenir, alcohol and jewelry shops where we couldn’t even find a supermarket. Basically once you’ve been to one shop, you’ve been to them all …

The food here are tourist traps where the price was alright (compared to Switzerland and London) for average food. Just as a warning that when they say Czech dumplings, it’s not a dumpling but bread. We Asians need to show them what real dumplings are!

What you want to try is the trdelnik which is an awesome Hungarian dessert. Dough is wrapped around a stick and cooked in an open fire and then sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon and almond mix. Biting into the sweet crispy caramelised outer layer into a doughy center with sugar crystals dusting your lips.

Prague is so pretty but it was a shock to be in a city that’s filled with only tourists. Maybe I need to run away from the city center to find the locals next time.

    Did you try alcoholic hot tea while you were there? After a very long walk near the castle, our guide Martina took us to a really old tea house and we had alcoholic tea. I loved it. Nobody could translate the alcohol in it so I’m still clueless. :)

      Ooo no I haven’t tried their alcoholic tea before but it sounds like a treat after exploring the castle :)

        On one of the days we were there, the castle was open and our guide knew a security guard and boom… we were in an hour before closing and had the place nearly to ourselves. The guard and our guide took us through and we didn’t miss a thing. I love Prague.

          Haha that sounds awesome! Always good to get away with from the crowd and your tour guide and the guard sound amazing – what a special memory :)
