Welcome to my first series in A Day with MBV in Prague.
Today’s A Day with MBV…will be in Prague! I enjoyed visiting Prague because it was a short flight; the journey to the airport was just the best (I met some of the group travellers who just had me cracking up from 5 am). It was a short but sweet trip, where I met some great people and was able to explore a city!
I know I know, it was only a day! The reaction my manager gave me when I returned to work was just priceless! But I’m about to show you what you can do in only one day! So read on!
So, what did I do in just one day??
We started by getting our travel cards for the day, which cost only £3.00 EACH!! That is cheap as chips! We then got two different types of transport to where we were heading. This journey involved lots and lots of running, and catching buses and trains! Let’s say it didn’t seem like Google Maps was our friend that day!
Waf Waf Brunch
First stop – We had brunch at WafWaf a place where you can build your very own breakfast with any base of your choice – crepe, waffle or American pancakes. Of course, I went for the American pancakes with chicken, cream, snickers (my fave chocolate) banana and syrup. What? The girl was hungry.
The place was absolutely great thanks again to @traveleatslay who managed to secure us complimentary milkshakes. If you love a place that is Instagrammble then this place is for you.
Cost – £3.44
Wallenstein Palace Gardens
Second stop – We then made our way to the Prague Castle and accidentally stumbled at the Wallenstein Palace Garden which was absolutely beautiful. The Wallenstein Palace Garden is a Baroque palace in Malá Strana, Prague, that used to serve as a residence for Imperial Generalissimo Albrecht von Wallenstein and now houses the Senate of the Czech Republic. Another place for Instagram – check out a picture below.
Cost – £0.00
Third stop – We finally found the famous Prague Castle which was the longest walk ever! To make matters worse it was drizzling, and the walk was uphill – not two combinations I enjoyed. Once we were at the top I was happy to see the view before me. Prague Castle is a castle complex in Prague, the Czech Republic, dating from the 9th century. It is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. The castle was a seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of Czechoslovakia. This place is nice to take pictures for the view – check out pictures below.
Cost – £0.00
St Charles Bridge
Fourth stop – We then headed to the Charles bridge. If you live in London, you will know all the famous bridges we have across central London. The Charles bridge was built very differently to the other bridges I’ve seen before. The Charles Bridge is a historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic. It was built in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV and finished at the beginning of the 15th century.
Cost – £0.00
John Lennon Wall
Fifth stop – I had always wanted to get to the John Lennon Wall ever since I knew I was going to Prague. I love street art and graffiti because they tell stories of a country. I think we were there for ages just taking pictures and boomerangs – I absolutely loved it! The Lennon Wall or John Lennon Wall is a wall in Prague, Czech Republic. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles’ songs.
Please note: This again was not an easy place to locate via google maps, luckily we were able to meet a nice local who kindly walked us to the wall and took pictures of us!
Cost – £0.00
Dinner at Café Márnice
Final stop – We headed over to Café Marnice where I had the famous Prague sausage with chips and salad; with a glass of rose. I like a little drink when I’m away on a trip!
I can’t say I enjoyed this restaurant that much because they didn’t take card payment. It made me realise that living in London, you can take a lot of things for granted as most places have a card machine. Going to Prague reminded me that not everywhere is as technologically savvy as London as I had to get money out to pay for my meal – Lesson learnt.
Cost – £15.75
It is surprising what you can see in just one day if you plan it well. I hope you enjoyed my first A Day with MBV series.
