You may or may not remember this, but we had a very small amount of time in Prague. The train schedule meant that we arrived at 7:30 Sunday morning and had to leave by 3 pm the next day. This meant that — unlike in other cities — there were no naps.
We had to see as much as possible with the time we had.
So here’s a list of 6 things we saw in Prague on our whirlwind tour — you know, in case you only have 12 hours there next week.
- The Astronomical Clock and Tower.
If I learned one thing in Prague, it’s that they really like their clock. And it’s cool! Even cooler than crowding around the clock is paying the money to go into the clock tower. Panoramic views of the city await you!
- The Square.
We really lucked out on our timing here because the square in Old Town was just starting up its Christmas market. We watched a performer playing “Name That Tune” with the crowd, met some new horsey friends and ate a delicious pastry. Very cool.
- Our Lady Upon Tyn.
Here’s this church:
You should go, obviously. Perhaps to their 9 pm Sunday Mass. Because that’s right up my alley.
- St. Vitus Cathedral.
St. Vitus Cathedral is located in the castle complex. Honestly, as far as I’m concerned, it was the best part of the whole castle experience. The windows are absolutely incredible and well worth the price of the ticket.
- The Prague Castle.
Look you gotta go because you’re in Prague and it’s part of the authentic Praha experience. However, the castle itself is kind of underwhelming.
- A Crystal and Garnet Shop.
Because what’s the point of going to a country where the garnets are cheap if no one will buy you any?
