Czech Diary: Day 2 - Prague🇨🇿


After day 1 in Czech; I woke up the next day a bit late after a long day before. The Arab guy I met the day before called me and we decided to meet at 11. I got dressed and went out to have breakfast first; and then I met him. We had two locations left to visit from the Jewish quarter’s Museum; so we did that first.

After we visited the Jewish quarter’s Museums; we headed to Prague Castle and then right next to it we visited Saint Vitus Cathedral. The views from the top where the castle is located was amazing, Prague have amazing spots from the top to look over the city. After that, we walked to the Old Town Square to have lunch. After having lunch, we walked around a bit until we reached The Dancing House, there was a bar/cafe located at the very top, so we decided to go up there. It is free to enter the cafe and sit there, but to go out on the balcony you have to do order a drink to be able to do so. We ordered a couple of drinks and went out on the balcony, it was midday at that point, so the weather was nice and again I have to say the view was amazing. The Dancing House overlooks Vltava River.

After that, we went to hike the Petřín Hill and then we went to The Petřín Lookout Tower. The Petřín Lookout Tower is a steel-framework tower 63.5 metres tall on Petřín Hill in Prague, that was built in 1891. The Petřín Lookout Tower resembles the Eiffel Tower and was used as an observation tower as well as a transmission tower. The views were amazing from up there, you could see the whole city, whether from the top of the tower or while hiking the hill. There are a few restaurants and cafes in that area, so you can enjoy the view while having a meal or a drink. Next to the The Petřín Lookout Tower you will find The Church of Saint Lawrence, It was originally a Romanesque church, later rebuilt in the Baroque style by Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer.

After that, we crossed Charles Bridge to go to Malá Strana, also known as Lesser Town, this is a neighbourhood in Prague. Malá Strana is a hillside area with views across the Vltava river to the old town. Hotels, casual eateries and traditional pubs line its narrow streets. In Malá Strana you can find the Lennon Wall, that wall has been filled with John Lennon inspired graffiti, as well as lyrics from The Beatles' songs and designs relating to local and global causes. People scribbles messages to the late John Lennon on that wall. The riverside Kampa area offers fine dining, and exhibits of photos and letters at the Franz Kafka Museum, and you will find peacocks roaming freely at Wallenstein Garden.

Prague is a beautiful city and I have enjoyed it so much, but Malá Strana was the best part in the city. Malá Strana is quieter in comparison to the rest of the city and it is a nice area to have a walk, we enjoyed walking there. After walking around Malá Strana, we found a restaurant where we decided to have dinner. After that; we were tired so we decided to call it a day, but before leaving we went to Crème de la Crème to have ice cream again, same as the day before. After that we said our goodbyes and left.

I was really tired after that, as I explored the whole of Prague in two days and on foot, but it was worth it. I had 2 days left in Prague I leave, and I didn't have anything left to do in Prague, so I didn't know what will I do for the next two days, but since I was tired I decided to go to bed and then decide the next day.

How to Move Around Prague


Prague has great and affordable transportations spread across the city, you can take the tram, the metro, or the bus. Tickets need to be purchased according to the length of the journey, If you are staying in Prague for a few days; then a 3-day ticket is the best option, it costs 310 CZK or €11.5. If you will be using transportation just once then a 30 minute ticket is great and it costs 24 CZK or €0.90.


You can skip the transportation and explore Prague on foot, this is what I did and it was easy as most places are located near each other. You can also use Lime scooters to explore the city, this will be a fun way to do so.


I did a walking tour with a local that took 1.5 hours, and it was one of the best things! I really enjoyed it and it was really fun exploring Prague while being with a local that would tell you all these small details that you probably wouldn’t hear about. I booked this tour through GetYourGuide, and I highly recommend you start your trip to Prague with this tour, it’s a great starter.
