Prague Travel Guide – Fairytale Capital of the Czech Republic 🇨🇿
Join us on tour around Prague - the capital of the Czech Republic.
Prague is, for sure, one of Europe's most beautiful cities, and even though most people associate it with the stunning views of Hradcany Castle, it definitely has a lot more to offer.
In this video, we partner up with the Hotel Suite Home Hotel, located right in the heart of Prague. You can check them out here 👉www.hotelsuitehomeprague.com.
The lovely staff quickly assigned us a very comfortable, spacious suite. We had two bedrooms, a private bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen, which always comes in handy when traveling as a family!
The next morning, we started with a delicious breakfast at Hotel Suite Home, and after a quick recap of our plan for the day, we headed out to rediscover Prague once again.
This was our second time in the city, but the girls were too young to remember our previous visit.
On our way to the Old Town, we stopped by one of Prague's oldest landmarks, the Powder Tower, and enjoyed a traditional, creamy Trdelnik pastry.
As always, our first stop when discovering a city is its tourism office. Once we received all the information, we headed toward the narrowest street in Prague that opened into a nice little restaurant area by the River Vltava, overlooking Charles Bridge - the oldest bridge in town.
Crossing Charles Bridge, we walked right into the Old Town Square, one of Europe's most charming squares. The square has seen its fair share of history, with some Gothic buildings dating back to the 14th century.
The Old Town Hall Tower, constructed in the early 1400s, sits imposingly in the middle of the square holding one of Prague's most identifiable icons, the Astronomical Clock. The mechanical relic show is an amusing site when tourists all around the world come to see the dancing mechanical dolls. It's a show that shouldn't be missed.
We walked down the hill from the square to the Mala Strana neighborhood. Here we got to see many historic cobblestoned streets and the spectacular facades of the centuries-old buildings.
After a quick stop for lunch and a refreshing glass of beer, we headed for the Jewish Quarter (Joosefov) in Prague - a remnant of a not-so-distant, tragic past.
We also walked down Paris Street, lined with Bohemia glass shops, brand stores, and excellent restaurants.
So if you ever find yourself in Prague, don't be afraid to jump off the main thoroughfares to turn into a side street and follow your curiosity. There is much to be discovered in this beautiful city.
