Interrail 2016 – Prague

If there was ever a city to make you feel like you just stepped into a fairy-tale, Prague is it.

I’ve visited Prague before in the winter, but the idea of Prague in the summer sun, comfortably warm and slightly hazy, drew me back to the Czech capital for the second stop of our inter-rail journey. And it didn’t disappoint!

Candy-coloured houses topped with burnt-orange roofs line the cobbled streets, and the views from the top of the Bell Tower (although we didn’t manage to get up there this time around because of a marathon) are spectacular. Luckily I took some pictures last time, hence my darker hair and fringe!

The hostel we stayed in here was also my personal favourite. It was just like a little apartment with a kitchenette and dining table, so cooking your own meals would be a breeze.

Located just around the corner from the main train station, Hotel Rosemary was a 15-minute walk from the Old Town Square and was close to one of the main shopping streets in Prague, Wenceslas Square.

What we ate/drank

It would be a crime not to mention these gorgeous ‘chimney cakes’, or ‘trdenlik’. They’re available all over the city but we got ours from Good Food just off Charles Bridge (on the old town side). Look out for the sign, or failing that, look for the long queue!

Cocktails in front of the Astronomical Clock at Oliva Verde restaurant. There’s plenty of outdoor seating for the warm evenings and the raspberry mojito is to die for!
