Pursuing Prague

One Day in Prague

I arrived in Prague later in the evening and after standing on the train for most of my 4 hours trip, I was starving. I texted my sister and asked her to look up vegetarian places to eat in the city because I was stuck without wifi on the train. I mean this is what little sisters are for, right? Well, she struck gold and as soon as I dropped my stuff off at my Airbnb, I walked to a small side street to eat at Lehká Hlava.

The place was packed and I should have made a reservation, but who makes a reservation for one person? They sat me at a table “outside” by the bathrooms. Let’s be honest, it was the table by the dumpsters. I was not pleased because the interior of the restaurant was so unique and different, I wanted to experience it. So I asked the waitress if I could be moved and she said as long as I didn’t mind sitting with a random couple.

So there I was eating my dinner with two people from Germany. It was very interesting. We chatted the entire time and I really enjoyed it. I ordered the raw spaghetti, which was delicious and very affordable. After dinner, I decided to call it an early night and walked home.

Due to the amount of places I wanted to visit on my trip, my time in Prague was only limited to one day. To be honest, this was the perfect amount of time to explore the city. I began my day early, and walked to Cacao, a restaurant that served Acai bowls.

After, I walked around and saw The Powder Tower, Municipal House, The Old Town Square, The Astrological Clock, Charles Bridge, The Jewish Quarter and The Prague Castle. The square was a tourist trap I wish I avoided. I wanted to climb to the top of the Astrological Clock, but the wait was so long that I decided to cross the Charles Bridge to cast my wish and visit The John Lennon Wall and The Dripstone Wall. 

After a long day of walking, I took a short break at my Airbnb and then grabbed dinner at Estrella. This was a vegetarian/vegan restaurant right around the corner from my place. It was so cute and had a Grecian feel to it with white walls and little wooden tables. I ordered the Mezze starter that had lentil hummus, egg plant paté, fresh goat cheese and olives. There was also a spicy red pepper, tomato paste. For my main course, I had the yellow Thai curry. I also finished up with some banana sorbet. This had to be my favorite meal in Prague.Processed with VSCO with m3 preset Processed with VSCO with m3 preset Processed with VSCO with m3 preset Processed with VSCO with m3 preset Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

After dinner, I met Leah and Anne at their hostel to go out on a bar crawl. I was very hesitant about this. I had never done a bar crawl before in my life and I wanted to catch up on some sleep. But the night was young and I needed to let my hair down and have some fun. This bar crawl was a blast. We made friends with girls from London and some guys from Australia. My favorite club had five floors, each with a different theme. We danced the night away and ended up grabbing some street food when we left. It was a great way to end my visit in Prague.

Advice:

  • Try a Trdelnik with ice-cream. So Delicious!
  • Order a mojito that serves 8-10 people for 5 people
  • Walk around, don’t take a Segway
  • Grab fried potato skins on a stick
