We got up early to get the train from Berlin to Prague. We hopped in an Uber and right away he asked if that’s where we were going. Apparently, because it’s so close, that’s what most people do when they are travelling.
The train was only about 4 and a half hours. Since we got up so early, we both napped on the train. We arrived just before lunch and decided to find somewhere for lunch. There was a cute little restaurant called Cafe Palace. It was a Michelin suggested restaurant. I ordered a club and Chris ordered a fried sandwich.
From there we decided to tour the town. We found a square that held the Old Town Hall. It had the coolest clock on the outside. It is an astronomical clock from 1410. All the buildings were breathtaking.
After the square, we walked along the river to one of the most famous bridges in the town called Charles Bridge. The bridge houses 30 statues that connect the old town to the castle.
By the time we made it to the castle, it was closed to the public to go inside. We were still able to walk around the outside. You walk up many flights of stairs before coming to a security checkpoint. You walk through a metal detector and they check your bag before you can go on.
It was really neat to be inside the walls of the castle as a city. It had an amazing church and unreal views. My one regret is that we didn’t time it well enough to go inside to see more.
All and all, I would have to say that Prague had some of the most amazing architecture I have ever seen. I felt like I was in the middle of a fairytale.
Our time in Prague went by so quickly. At 10pm, it was time to jump on our 7 night bus to Frankfurt before getting on an hour train to Cologne!
