Prague’s Top 3
1. Prague Castle & St. Vitus Cathedral
The Prague Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral are two must see sites in Prague. The best part is that you will probably see both when trying to visit one because the cathedral is basically inside of one of the courtyards. The cathedral is particularly beautiful. Stained glass and gothic architecture – ah it was so cool!
2. St. Cyril Cathedral & Krypt
I am a sucker for history – especially World War II. Thanks to one of the other students in my travel study, I learned that our hostel was a block away from a church that was part of a very crucial but underrated event during the second world war. This church, St. Cyril’s cathedral, housed the Czech assassins responsible for ending the life of Reinhard Heydrich, the man who was responsible for organized Nazi concentration camps. For this reason, there was a firefight at the cathedral and the bullet holes are still visible. When I arrived at the site, there were fresh flowers and candles from the night before.
3. Old Town Square
Old Town Square is one of Prague’s largest tourist attractions for a reason. This is an awesome part of town where you can watch the display on the astronomical clock every hour and eat delicious dessert. Trdlenik is a local dessert. It is like a donut but only has a hole on one side and can be filled with nutella.
