The train ride from Budapest to Prague is seven hours! In my journal on the train I wrote, “Hungry! Hot! Yuck! But so lucky!”
And, lucky I am. Prague is, “Romantic! Beautiful! Historic!” I instantly fell in love with this city, which was not something I expected for the Czech Republic.
We spent our first evening relaxing, tasting Czech beer and doing laundry for the first time in two weeks. Whew! Here is what else we did while in Prague, and if you make it to the bottom of this post you will see the John Lennon Tribute Wall…
The following morning was so-incredibly-fun. On our way to Prague’s famous astronomical clock we stumbled across a Saturday market, which is definitely my favorite thing to do in the world.
We spent about two hours at the market, maybe more. I bought a lot of artwork and a hand carved wooden mask for my collection.
After refueling with some Korean food we were ready to see the Astronomical Clock, and we happened to make it right on the hour. When the hour strikes trumpets salute the Stare Mesto Square and a little skeleton pulls the string to ring the clock tower bells.
We eventually made it Prague’s historical Charles Bridge, a pedestrian bridge decorated with 30 statues watching those who cross over from Old Town to the Prague Castle.
After making it across the bridge we ventured in and out of shops and cathedrals on our way up to the hill to Prague Castle.
Okay so I know this post is incredibly long but we covered a lot of ground in two days and I can’t leave anything out! So if you’re still reading – thank you :)
You’ve made it! Yes, it is possible that this post will end. Only after I share the best part – pictures of the John Lennon Tribute Wall. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
