I am off to Prague. It is a city that I have been to many times and enjoy every time I go. For this trip, I am visiting to meet up with Patty and other good friends with plans to go to Epic Club. The name is fitting as this club really was epic. It is an audio and visual experience and DJ UMEK was amazing! I had a great time and always enjoy seeing friends.
For my stay, I chose the President Hotel Prague. This hotel is centrally located and close to all the places I plan to go. I had a great room with a really cool window seat and breakfast was perfect every day. The staff here is nice and the prices here are very reasonable. I highly recommend this hotel.
Another hotel I visited was the Sheraton Prague Charles Square Hotel but I am here for a different reason. I am here to have drinks with my friends and watch the sunset and I was not disappointed. The High 8 Terrace Bar has great views of the city, delicious food, and the sunset was absolutely gorgeous. This is a place I will definitely return to.
There are lots of dining and nightlife options in Prague and I chose some different places for this visit. I checked out James Dean, a 1950’s American themed restaurant and club. Here you can find some great photo opportunities with some seats made from old cars, an antique Coca-Cola jukebox, and all sort of cool pictures and decorations. For a little dancing and music and to burn off some of those calories, head downstairs. James Dean is worth a visit for sure.
As my friends know, I really enjoy Thai food and I found a nice restaurant at the Palladium Shopping Center called Thai-Thai & Ramen. It is located at the top level of the shopping center with nice views and lots of delicious Thai options. It is busy here and things move fast but it definitely met my needs.
As I have mentioned before, a visit to Prague without going to one of the many breweries would be a shame. One brewery I always enjoy going to is ‘Two cats’ brewery or in the Czech language U Dvou Kocek. Another brewery I have to mention is called U Zlatého Tygra or “Gold Tiger.” This brewery has hosted numerous celebrities and sports stars from all over the world. Cheers to all the great breweries in Prague!
For sightseeing, I start at Old Town Square. This square had its beginnings in the tenth century. Here they have one of the oldest medieval astronomical clocks. It was installed in 1410 and is still ticking. Very cool! The square features two churches, St Nicholas and Our Lady before Týn, the Old Town Hall, buildings with great architecture, cafes, and shops. This is always on my list to visit when I am in Prague. Another cool statue to see is the head of Franz Kafka. This statue rotates and is 11 meters tall. There are 42 shiny metal panels that gives this statue a unique mirrored 3D look. Definitely worth checking out. Watch and see how it changes and take some cool photos.
Strolling along the Vltava River is always a treat and Prague would not be Prague without it. Here you can see many of the historic sites and the Charles Bridge. The bridge has been around since 1402 and has 30 statues of saints carved into it. This is a must see when in Prague.
Across the Vltava River is Letenski sady, a beautiful park set on a hill that overlooks Prague. Here I recommend going to the top of the hill to Hanavský Pavilion. This is a unique and really cool building that has a restaurant where you can enjoy great views of the city.
I had a great visit with Patty and friends and I am excited for my next visit to Prague.
