Preparing for a Trip to Prague

Friday J is heading to a conference in Prague, so of course I'm going to tag along! I've never visited Prague before and I'm really excited about the trip. I typically use the New York Times travel guide, 36 Hours in Europe for travel inspiration; however, for this trip I've found it less useful than usual. In my search for other ways to plan my trip I've found five helpful resources that I thought I'd share below.

1) Margo from Guten Blog Y'all has written seven helpful posts about her visit to Prague. I definitely stalked those posts when I found out that I'd be heading to Prague. She also went on a yummy food tour that I'm tempted to sign up for.

2) Venere.com is a helpful website for finding the perfect hotel in Prague. We are staying at the Diplomat Hotel, which is located close to J's conference and close to a metro stop so that I can easily visit all of the sites. Check it out!

3) When planning a trip, I love to check out the Wanderlists on Afar Magazine. These are collections of highlights from trips taken by Afar writers and fellow travelers. You can even post your own trip highlights to share with the world.

4) The blog the Czechesotans covers all things Czech and they even share their expat life there. It only fuels my daydreams of moving to Prague...

5) I've started a board on Pinterest to inspire your next trip to Prague. Boy does that Astronomical Clock look incredible! I'm also very excited to eat all of the pastries - Czech pastries look delicious.

Do you have any last minute pointers for my trip to Prague? What should I see, eat, or do!

    1. There are so many Russian tourists here - is it easy to travel to LT? Your photos from Armenia are making me want to book a plane ticket!

  5. Oh I loved Prague! A truly unique city. I've never been anywhere quite like it.

    I was actually physically assaulted by a 90 year of Czech woman with a shopping bag! No lie! My advice?...learn how to say 'Excuse me' in Czech if nothing else!

    1. It is always good to learn how to say a few words in the language of where you are traveling. Being assaulted by old ladies sounds like such an eastern European thing. Here in Lithuania old ladies are often cutting me in lines, pushing me out of the way, or throwing my groceries down in front of me. Just got to smile through it!

  6. Thanks for the shout-out, E! I just read this and was going to write "msg me if you need anything" but noticed that date and figure you must be back already. Hope you had a most excellent trip!
