Prague 2019

Our original flight from London to Prague was canceled due to bad weather so we actually lost a day in Prague 😦 Nevertheless, we tried to visit as many as places we originally intended to but had to cut out a few places.

Day 1

Apple Museum

This is pretty much an exhibition of Apple products and its history. I didn’t go inside since it didn’t look too interesting and worth it to purchase a ticket (but that’s just me!)

Man Hanging Out

As we were making our way towards Charles Bridge, we spotted the “Man Hanging Out”, a statue by David Černý. The statue depicts Sigmund Freud hanging from the pole with one hand and pondering whether to hold on or let go. You can find more of his work all across Prague.

Knights of The Cross Square

Charles Bridge

Believe it or not, it’s actually one of my dreams to see this bridge in person! I’ve seen it in so many travel photos of other people’s trip and I really wanted to see it for myself.

Old Town Square

For the rest of the day we wandered around Old Town Square.

This is chimney cake or Trdelník, and I got it with vanilla cream. There are other toppings (like ice-cream!) you can choose from but honesty I thought the cream was too sweet and I could’ve done without it.

Astronomical Clock

Before we leave Old Town Square for dinner, we stayed until the clock hits 6pm to see the short “show” from the clock. From 9am to 11pm, the clock will have a “show” when the clock hits the hour. I thought the show was a little underwhelming, but hey, might as well see it since I am there!

Pizza Coloseum

We didn’t have dinner planned and randomly picked this reasonably priced Italian restaurant.

Day 2

We started off the morning by taking the tram towards Petrin Tower and grabbing breakfast at a nearby Starbucks.

Petrin Funicular

After breakfast we walk to the Újezd station of the cable car and took it to Petřín.

Petrin Tower

After we got off the station, there’s still a short walk before you get to the tower. The weather had been rainy and gloomy the two days we were in Prague and it started raining after we got off the cable car.

You have to get tickets to go up the tower and there’s an option to take the elevator to the top but we opted for the stairs (299 steps!) instead.

This is the view on the way up the tower and it was so cold, rainy, and windy (but so worth it).

You can get a glimpse of Prague Castle.
These are just the views from halfway up the tower!

The view from the top of the tower was just stunning! You get a great view of the whole city and because it just rained, the sun was shining down the middle of the city like a spotlight ❤

Wallenstein Garden

This is a Baroque garden build in the 1620’s, which is probably one of the reasons I was drawn to it due to its symmetric design.

Prague Castle

It was pouring rain when we were taking the tram to the castle and it only started clearing up as we were walking to the castle. But little did we know, the inside of most of the buildings (including the castle and the cathedral) were closed by the time we got there. We started the day pretty late and didn’t think of checking the opening hours before hand 😦

Luckily, we were still able to walk around the courtyard and the space outside of the castle.

The views I saw while leaving though didn’t disappoint.

Street Market

It was pretty late by the time we left the castle and we decided to see if the street market was still open. I forgot which market this one was though. A lot of the stalls were either closed or started packing up but there were still some stalls selling fruits and other souvenirs.

This wraps up my trip in Prague! Though it was cut short, I still got a good glimpse of the city. I’ll be back again one day.
