What to do, in that odd slump between Christmas and New Year? And especially what to do, if one of your best girlfriends hits the big 3-0 in that time, too? There was only one thing for it. Grab your passport, hop on a 90 minute flight, and find yourself in fairy tale Prague…
We stayed in the dreamiest, Carrie Bradshaw style Air B n B, which was a stones throw from the Old Town.
If, like me, you’re a sucker for wandering around with your eyes looking up and absorbing all of the pretty architecture, then Prague is the fairy tale town for you. It really is beautiful. Cobbled streets, coloured houses…. I could wax lyrical about it all!
Not to mention, their local food is … FRIED. CHEESE. Fried cheese people…! Oh, and beer is cheaper than water. Pretty amazing all round!
We spent two days, wondering around, ducking into tiny candle lit restaurants tucked away in side streets, and giving absinthe a try. It is absolutely not for me… too potent! But the girls survived their glasses … Just about 😉
Prague at Christmas time is just the most beautiful, festive place. A little part of me wishes we’d gone just before so we could really get in the Christmas spirit, but it was just as beautiful post-Christmas, too! The Christmas markets continued in the streets, the tallest tree was lit up in the square and every restaurant felt so cosy and homely…
If you get the chance to go to Prague, GO! We only explored the main city as we were there for 2 days, but I have it on good authority that there’s some stunning country side to be seen, too!
We also did a river cruise which I probably wouldn’t recommend unless you’re there in summer – it was full of condensation and we couldn’t see a thing. Luckily we quite like each other’s company, and we especially like each others company when it involves Bohemia Sekt… so we managed to pass the time 😉
Have you been to Prague? I’d love to hear about it!
