A Week Through Prague, Vienna and Budapest!

Traveling to Prague, Vienna and Budapest? Here’s an itinerary to help you plan your week in Eastern Europe.



Day 1: Half Day in Old Town Square

Welcome to the first stop in your Prague, Vienna and Budapest trip. You can either kick off Prague at the Prague Beer Museum or you can end your first night here. Although, it isn’t really a museum. It’s more of a smokey dive bar filled with locals and out of towners from all over the world. Whichever you choose, Old Town is the ideal place to stay if your in Prague for a few days.

Everyone makes a stop at the Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square to watch a puppet show at the top of the hour every hour. When the show’s over, dinner options are plenty. If you opt for some local goulash, like I did, you can walk it off by strolling across the Charles Bridge towards the Lennon Wall. The Charles Bridge at night highlights the 30 gothic statues that line both sides of the bridge.

I had a hard time deciding which side of Budapest to stay in. While I was debating between Buda or Pest, I started to map out all the things I wanted to see and do and eat. Before I even finalized my itinerary, I realized that I’d be going back and forth between Buda and Pest at least half a dozen times. To save on time and taxi fare, I decided to book a hotel close to the Chain Bridge. And I’m glad I did. I walked across that bridge over a dozen times during my visit. It was ALWAYS worth the trek.
