Czech Diary: Day 3 & 4 - Prague🇨🇿
After the first two days have ended, I'm not gonna lie; I was exhausted. I explored everything in Prague in two days on foot, so for the third day I just stayed in the Airbnb and didn't feel like leaving. If you have read my other two blog posts about Czech; you would know that I made plans that were canceled which is why I had plenty of extra time where I didn't have anything to do. I was gonna leave Czech early but I didn't find any flights before Friday.

So, as I mentioned I stayed in the Airbnb for the entirety of the third day and just got food from Uber Eats. I really needed a day off as well cause I have been traveling none stop for the whole month; so a day off was really needed. Also, I could've explored Czech in more that two days; but since I was hanging out with other people, we just did everything in two days. We went out early in the morning and left late at night, and also most of the places to see/visit are near each other so it was easy to explore on foot.

For the fourth and last day, again I didn't really have plans. I had to check-out of the Airbnb early in the morning and my flight was at night, so I had the whole day free to do whatever I wanted. Also, I didn't feel like walking or exploring anymore cause I was still exhausted. I decided to book a guided tour from GetYourGuide to pass time and then find a cafe to stay in and do some laptop work until I leave for the airport.

I booked a 1.5 hour guided tour and found a cute and small cafe to stay in until my flight. The guided tour was early in the morning which was good since I was leaving the Airbnb early. It was supposed to be a group tour but I was the only one to book it which was nice, the tour guide was a so nice! Her name is Hana and she is so lovely, and I'm not gonna lie; having a local guide is fun cause she not only shows you the location/sites, but she gives you the story behind each one of them. We chatted for a while until we exchanged numbers and then left.

After the tour ended, I went to a small cafe nearby called MyRaw Café; the cafe was so cosy and the people working there were so friendly. I eat a lot of good food there and finished some laptop work. After a few hours chilling there, I finally left to go to the airport. I'm not gonna lie, I was sad at first when my plans were canceled and I though this trip was ruined, but I enjoyed this trip so much and it was one of my favourite. Prague became my favourite city to visit, my family is tired of how much I speak about Prague.

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.
