My first memories of Prague were as a young schoolgirl learning about a classmate’s home. We bonded over a love for Harry Potter books and she told me a bit about her culture. Fast-forward more than twenty years later and I’m on a train bound for Praha to finally see it for myself.
I knew I wanted to see Prague Castle and the amazing aerial views. There is obviously so much more than that but I really couldn’t begin to put it all in my imagination and a Fodor’s travel guide can only do so much.
The pastel buildings are breathtaking. I don’t know if anything can compare because although I’ve seen pastel houses in Barbados, it’s something like Candyland in Prague.
In Praha 2, walk around! It’s something like Venezia to me because I wanted to get lost in the most charming way. There are parks and beautiful homes just perfect for exploring.
I had coffee at IF Cafe a few times. It’s a quaint little coffee shop with the most delicious pastries.
Old Town Square is another must see place. While you’re there, look for garnet! It’s the most precious stone that you can find in Prague.
