The medieval town of Prague looks like something out of a fairytale picture book—every street and square seem more magical than the last.
- Charles Bridge: One of the most notable places around the city, the bridge is lined with statues on either side. It’s one of the most popular tourist spots in Prague, known for its beauty, architecture and the way it seems to capture perfect pictures every time. Since the bridge can become quite crowded, try to get to there around sunrise so that you encounter fewer fellow tourists and to capture awesome pictures.
- Prague Castle: After getting your fill of the beauty of Charles Bridge, hike up the steep hill to Prague Castle. The view as you climb up towards the castle is exhausting but well worth it. The castle sits overlooking the city, so it’s an excellent place just to relax and enjoy the view. Since the Prague Castle can become very crowded, it’s recommended to get to the castle as early as you can. The ticket prices vary, depending on how much of the castle you’d like to see–do some simple research ahead of time because the ticket booth will always recommend the all-inclusive (and most expensive) ticket. After exploring the grounds of the castle, you will probably be starving. Although there are many restaurants located around the castle, try to venture further away to not be sucked into a tourist trap.
- John Lennon Wall: After reenergizing from your hike up to Prague Castle, stroll back down to see the infamous John Lennon Wall. Even though John Lennon never visited Prague, the wall bears his name because he was known for spreading messages of love and peace. During the communist rule of the Czech Republic, students flocked to this wall to spread messages of love and peace. Today the wall lives on, and anyone can add their messages. Since there are no signs that can lead you to the wall, search for it on Google Maps or simply follow the crowds.
