Spent a weekend in Prague, Czech Republic. I thoroughly enjoyed my short stay of 2 days at this historic city. We were unable to see everything in the short span, however, due to the city’s small proximity and dense history, we were able to hit the main points of Prague. Living accommodation were provided by an AirBnB that was conveniently located next to a subway station. We got around by foot, subway, and when all public transportation were no longer in service (after midnight), we Uber’d. As far as currency goes, Czech dollars were very affordable and many establishments in tourist areas accepted Euros. I was in a tourist populated area that was multi-cultural. Luckily, heavy language barriers were not encountered, it was very English friendly!

Day 1 consisted of a lot of site seeing in New Town, Old Town, and the Prague Castle area.

New Town:

Wencelas Square

Narodni Muzeum

Old Town:

Astronomical Clock

Sex Machine Museum- surprisingly education and of course, entertaining.

Charles Bridge (MUST-SEE)- Street artists and merchants soliciting. Great for gift shopping, people watching, and views of the city.

Karlovy Lazne (MUST-SEE) – Central Europe’s largest night club consisting of 5 themed floors.

Prague Castle:

Wallenstein Garden

Prazske Vinice (Prague vineyard)

St.Vitus Cathedral (MUST-SEE)- You can climb to the very top for immaculate views of Prague.


Day 2 was a half day that consisted of few activities:

Henry’s Clock Tower- educational and has a beautiful city view from the top.

Peddle boating in the Vltava River- highly recommend

Prague Beer Museum – 30 local beers and ciders on tap!


I was absolutely amazed of the beauty of this city. Prague was once the capitol of the Holy Roman Empire. The aesthetics of the city is the result of the empire’s magnificence. During its reign, many objects of devotion were commissioned. Statues, monuments, and other mediums of art are found everywhere. These tangible objects represent the ideologies, beliefs, and lifestyles of that time. I’m highly intrigued by the change in perception of art going from objects of devotions to commodities. Where artworks are removed from its original context to one that caters to the tourist industry. Playing tourist is such bliss.
