Prague Photo Diary

Monday, 30 July 2012


Prague is a beautiful city that is packed full of people and interesting things to see and do.  If you love to walk around looking at incredible architecture, visiting countless art museums and learning more about history and past communist politics, then Prague really is your dream destination right in the heart of Europe.  Honestly, you could spend a whole week just going to art exhibitions and you'd still struggle to see everything!  I really wish I could have stayed an extra week to explore every nook and cranny that this amazing city has to offer.  I strongly suggest coming up with a detailed itinerary if you fancy going, you'll most certainly need one!

Photos (from top-bottom):- 1. Old Town Square.  2. The famous Astronomical Clock.  3. Tourists in Old Town Square.  4 & 5. 'Little Venice'.  6. A view from Charles Bridge of Vltava river.  7 & 8. Absinthe bars and ice-cream.  The ice-cream is certainly an acquired taste!  9. A delicious Trdelnik (like a spiralled donut).  10. Graffiti in New Town.  11. Decorative door like this one were everywhere.  12.  One of David Czerny's controversial public art pieces.  13.  Another David Czerny piece, depicting St. Wenceslas riding a dead horse.  14.  Franz Kafka at the Prague Wax Museum.  15. Old Town Square at night.  16.  Inside the Sedlec Ossuary or 'Bone Church' in Kutná Hora.  17. The enormous gothic Saint Barbara's Church, also in Kutná Hora.  18.  Visiting the Mucha Museum.  19. Statue of Franz Kafka on the shoulders of a giant headless man in the Jewish Quarter.  20. Art exhibit at AMoYA.  21.  Lunch at the popular student/backpacker hangout, Bohemia Bagel.  22 & 23.  The John Lennon Wall (the handsome man in the red shorts is Tim, our lovely tour guide, Hi Tim!).    

P.S: I have a Czech beauty giveaway coming up later today so keep your eyes open for that!

  2. I love Prague. We went there about 5 or 6 years ago. I loved there dark beer, which worked out about 50p a pint, cheaper than drinking water. Although I bet it's more expensive there now.
    I was fascinated by the Astronomical clock too. Looking at these pics has brought back so many happy memories so thanks for sharing.
    Ps Tim is lovely, Hi Tim haha :)

    1. Yeah the beer is still cheap! The local Pilsner beer was about 70p a pint. The Astronomical Clock was really amazing to look out, I don't think we have anything like that over here!
      Hehe Tim was a great guide :D

  9. Prague is on my list of places to visit, all your photos are lovely. Did you find any good vegetarian restaurants/cafes?? :) xx

    1. Yep! One of my friends who I was travelling with is vegetarian so we scouted out a couple of good places. Bohemia Bagel is good for veggie food (my meal in the photo above was a Spinach and Mushroom pizza bagel and it was delicious!) and there was a specialised Vegetarian and Organic cafe on one of the main side streets in the Old Town which was always busy and had great food. I would say perhaps avoid most of the traditional Czech restaurants because there's meat/meat ingredients in pretty much everything, but if you like Italian food then you could just eat out at all of the very reasonably priced Italian restaurants and be happy! :) xx

  12. I've been planning a gap-year in Prague - teaching English, and it's photos such as these that make me itch in anticipation. I look forward to a year in a bohemian dreamland, and this made me realize just what I have in store.

    Thanks for sharing!
