Prague Thoughts

Czech is very different than English, so don’t expect to interpret much (unless you speak Czech). But, most people speak English.

We highly recommend checking out the Petřín Park area which overlooks the city and the Vltava River!

CLICK HERE TO EXPLORE THE PARK!

Extremely beautiful view with the Cathedrals, castles and red rooftops of the houses throughout the city!

Many of the attractions in Prague are very affordable!

There is a beautiful wine vineyard & bistro close to Prague Castle! Beautiful view overlooking Prague here!

Journal Entry

The city is mostly walkable! However, we suggest strategically taking the trams and busses up the hills to save your legs.🙂

There are countless hip bars and coffee shops all around Prague!

Departure Steps

  • We took the Regio Jet train to Vienna from Prague which cost about $22.50 each and took about 4 hours. The train was extremely comfortable with lounge chairs and a screen in the headrest also had WIFI!

 

  • We recommend going to the station at least a day before to get your tickets squared away! That way you know where the station is, you know how to get there, and you will be ready to go — seamlessly — the day you depart!
