Prague, Czech Republic

Our favourite city so far! Absolutely stunning everywhere you looked (I had to stop myself from taking a million photos!). The buildings were colourful and gorgeous and there is of course a castle complex, which holds the Guinness World Record title for the largest coherent castle complex in the world. It also dates back to the 9th century and is so unbelievably well preserved.

We only had two full days here, which was enough to explore the city, so we just wandered around admiring all the sites. We visited another castle complex just outside of the city too, which was nice but the weather wasn’t good so we didn’t spend much time there.

We went out to eat at a local restaurant that was recommended to us for the good local food and beer. I ate the Czech speciality of fried cheese (literally a slab of fried cheese on a plate- so delicious!), while Matt got another local dish- pork knuckles.

The Czechs eat A LOT of meat so I struggled to find anything interesting to eat. But we did find a vegan restaurant for me the next day in the castle complex. We ate mexican style burgers and Matt said that it was the best burger he has eaten in a very long time, so I was pretty excited about that.

Prague also had the most amount of tourists we had seen so far. It was beyond ridiculous. There were people everywhere and it was often difficult to walk through the narrow streets. Walking across the bridge to the castle was crazy. Then every hour, in the middle of the city, everyone would gather around the clock to watch the little puppets on the side move. It wasn’t that interesting, but you were forced to watch because you literally couldn’t walk through the people anyway.

But we realise there is a reason everyone wants to visit this city. I could never describe how beautiful it is. Despite the hoards of annoying tourists, we still loved our time here.
