Prague

We were in Prague in late afternoon. It was a cloudy day and we took the bus from airport to Prague city center. On the way to hostel, we made a stop at KFC and there I had the best KFC of my life. Best KFC, period.

We went to the hostel and checked-in our stuff. This was the first time during the whole trip where we were staying in hostel. And also my first experience in hostel. It seemed nice and clean. We spent sometime in beds to get some rest. After resting a bit, we decided to go out. We walked around city center without any aim and came across some interesting buildings and things. Specially at night, the city looked something straight out of fairy tales

 

Later, we decided to visit to walk to The old square town. The Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) is one of two main squares in Prague. With its ancient buildings and magnificent churches, this is one of the most beautiful historical sights in Europe.

 

After spending quite sometime there, we walked towards river and I still remember, it was one of the places like I’ve imagined when reading fairy tales. After roaming around here and there, we decided to go to a night club and dance. I don’t remember the name of club but they claimed to be Europe’s biggest night club.

After getting a few drinks and dance, we were tired and decided to return to hostel. On the way, I again stopped at KFC and again had the best KFC of my entire life.

A day in Prague

We woke up next day and decided to go to Vrtba Garden. It was a sunny day and perfect for this kind of walk. We went through Old town square again and everything looked awesome in sunshine

 

Due to fall, the leaves was showing so many awesome colors in park that it was mesmerizing. There were a lot of tourists in the park so it was hard to take pictures but I still manage to capture some shots

 

After spending noon here, we decided to go to Petrin tower. Built as a mini version of Paris’s Eiffel Tower, the Petrin Observation Tower was built in 1891 for the Jubilee Exhibition. The tower is 60m tall, which doesn’t seem particularly high until you add in the fact that it sits at the summit of Petrin Hill, which is 318m (1043 feet) high. Climb the 299 steps to reach the top of the tower and the view over Prague is magnificent. The Petrin Observation Tower is set in landscaped gardens, which make for a pleasant stroll all year round. The views towards the tower were beautiful filled with colors of fall.

After spending evening at hill, we decided to go down and see the John Lennon wall. The Lennon Wall or John Lennon Wall is a wall in Prague, Czech Republic. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles’ songs.

Later we took walk towards Charles bridge of Prague and again it was magical view. We came across a place where there were many locks on the bridge just like any other famous bridge.

It was a lot of walking today and we felt really tired. We decided to go back hostel and get some rest. All in all, today was an awesome day and we had a lot of fun.

Despite the face that we were so tired, we still decided to walk and visit National Monument in Vitkov which is National war memorial & history museum offering panoramic city views & a chic rooftop cafe. We got lost on the way to the monument and ended up roaming in streets of Prague.

Later we managed to find our way to monument, which went through some nice nature and woods. Again, due to fall, the whole place was full of colors and everything looked so beautiful that it made us feel fresh again.

 

That was our last destination of the whole trip. We went back to hostel after that and packed our bags and went to airport. It was my first trip in Europe and I knew that I’ll be traveling soon again.
