After Berlin we took the train down to Prague! It was pretty cramped quarters (you were squished into little compartments instead of sitting in normal rows. I don’t know why but this made things about 10x smaller). Luckily we found the club car pretty early on in the ride and rode the whole 4 or 5 hours in there. (Maybe one of us fell asleep on a table in there. Maybe it was me.) We left one of the most beautiful, modern train stations in Berlin and got off in the Prague station, which was in need of a bit more TLC (ie wooden planks on the ground instead of ramps for luggage, you know). But as soon as we got to our hotel and started exploring, the charm that Prague is known for became more than evident.
The famous Astronomical Clock. On the hour the statues do a little dance, and everyone converges on the square to stare up and watch. Image “It’s a small world”meets a medieval clock tower.
The cutest little houses!
The Old New Synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe.
An adorable puppet shop! (We were pretty convinced this was the puppet store that Bachelorette Emily and her pick, Jeff, went to on the show, where he picked out an adorable mini-Ricky puppet and totally stole Emily’s heart. I don’t know if it was, but we can pretend).
It was a bit of a hike to get up to the Prague Cathedral and Castle…
Inside of the Prague Castle!
I had been told by friends to hit up the John Lennon wall while in Prague, and I was so glad I did. It was kind of hidden away just a couple of streets away from the always-crowded Charles Bridge, but it was so lovely and peaceful.
Walking across the bridge later in the afternoon.
Our time in Prague was lovely. It was hot, hot, hot, but we saw everything we wanted to see and then some! We also stumbled upon the best little crepe shop on our way up the hill to the Prague castle, and made sure to stop at it back on the descent. Not a bad base camp for the day’s adventures!
