Making the Most of a Trip to Prague

Whether you are planning a weekend break visit to Prague or a longer stay to the middle of Bohemia, Czech Republic, then this article will hopefully help you to make sure . Prague is, also, a popular weekend break with some of the best sightseeing in the world, making it difficult in choosing what to see and do.

If only in Prague for a weekend break, plan your visit carefully if you want to take in the many sites, but it’s lovely wandering the winding cobblestone streets looking at the fine architecture with styles from many centuries. Prague hosts a number of galleries, monuments, castles, historical churches, museums and so much more.  Prague, also, has a great nightlife with the many music clubs of nearly any style. You most likely will want to go to “Old Town,” and visit one or more of the historical churches, for example, and don’t forget the wonderful Palace of the Lords of Kunstat.  Then rest for a bit in the Old Town Square and enjoy a beer.  More to be seen is in Prague’s Lesser Town with the Prague Castle. Make sure to go to the observation tower on the top of Petrin Hill in the park for a great view.  St. Nicholas Church is very much worth a visit and there is much more to see in Lesser Town.  Prague’s New Town is very large. Due to mostly being demolished and rebuilt in the 19th century, it is much more modern that the Lesser Town or Old Town.  But, there are monasteries, palaces, towers and the Toy Museum to say the least so put on your walking shoes and tour around.  You can always stop to rest and watch the hustle and bustle of city life in Wenceslas Square.  For many, a visit to the Jewish Quarter holding the sad remains of the former WWII Jewish ghetto is a must.  Interesting is the Old Jewish Cemetery and there are several synagogue’s to visit.

Then there is the Czech food, mainly consisting of beef or pork in sauces and dumplings and a side dish like rice or potatoes. A favorite is Svickova or Rajiska a dish of meat, sauce, and whipped cream.  The Czechs, also, like to use chicken, duck, fish, turkey, rabbit, and lamb in their dishes so there is a good variety.  But many, when out and about, just enjoy having fried cheese with baked potatoes and tartar sauce or one of the tasty soups.  Also, it is almost a must to sit in a beer garden under the sky, enjoying drinking one of the perfect beers along with some of the many fine cheeses and the tasty sausages.

Sugar makes a person happy so happily enjoy the pancakes filled with jam, fruit or even ice cream and then covered with whipped cream, more sugar, and/or almonds.  Fruit dumplings or Kolac (cakes) with jam in the middle are very tasty.  The salads are huge and, also, very sweet.  You won’t go hungry or thirsty in Prague!!

Prague winter breaks, especially during Christmas, can be delightful even with the cold as the lighted markets and snow are quite romantic.

Prague is a wonderful weekend break with cheap deals on restaurants, hotels, and pubs and fantastic sightseeing.  And don’t forget the food and beer!!
