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.

 

Prague

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.

Prague Castle – the largest medieval castle in Europe and the capital’s top attraction. The current President of the Czech Republic, and past kings of the empire, has a home the size of SEVEN football fields. That’s a whole lot of cleaning.

Good thing they kept plenty of domestic helpers nearby back then on Golden Lane, home to servants, goldsmiths, alchemists and renown writer Franz Kafka. This street located within the castle walls is lined with miniature houses better suited for dwarves than even for a girl at 5’1”. While some of these homes have been turned into tourist shops, others have been frozen in time behind glass walls.

Dreary weather usually makes me want to crawl back in bed. In Prague though, the foggy gloom adds character to the “City of a Hundred Spires”. The weather gives the capital a gothic feel, which was quite fitting for Halloween.

After a quick view of the Astronomical Clock and heavy goulash for dinner last night, I walked over The Charles Bridge to get to the John Lennon Wall. The 30 statues the line both sides of the bridge kind of blended into the dull night sky so I didn’t think much of it in the dark.
