Prague on a Budgeto

Ryanair flights £40 per person flying on the 7th February at 14:00 – 9th February at 20:00, so were doing this in 2 days and an evening.

City Nest, Aparthotel as they call it on Booking.com – £30 each for two nights in the city centre. You can reach everything by walking, based in Prague 01 (Old Town)

Perfect location to get all the tourist attractions, within a 10 min walk. The sound proofing isn’t the best but for us it was a perfect studio apartment in the best location for food places and attractions.

Night One

Arrived at 7pm after a delayed flight because a guy was physically sick at the front of the plane…..the stag dressed up as a woman and he didn’t get kicked off the flight so we had to wait for the cleaning crew to deal with that before taking off.

Anyhow we finally arrived at 6pm to Prague! Went to the taxi rank and grabbed the first cab at the front of the airport. It was a 30/40 min taxi ride from the airport to our Aparthotel costing us Kr 750 /£25. There are other ways to get into the city via metro and tram but this is the quickest way.

Wokin, Thai fast food place, Kr 210 / £7 for a main stir fry and drink – much like Wok to Walk in London. Good, quick and tasty food, 5*

Day One

Time for lunch at a Vietnamese fast food restaurant £3.50 for a main meal each

Mysak, a bespoke coffee and dessert shop not located on Google maps but located on the way down to the astrological clock and a bit higher end. Nice place to sit down and relax with a tea or coffee and some sweet treats. A fresh orange juice is £3.50 and a cake is about £4.50 – £££ 5*

When there is snow avoid walking under the roof gutters as snow blocks almost took us out today!

Umbrellas Duhhh

We had dinner at La Picola Perla, a local Italian restaurant which had great reviews online and I can vouch for the food! Pasta was great, they also did big sharing platters and massive pizzas. We had two mains and a glass of wine for Kr600 for two people. Which is about £10 each for a nice, sit down dinner.

AnnoymousS bar, speak easy. amazing cocktails and great atmosphere! Quirky surprises and treats – highly recommend it if you can find it – 5* – ££ – Kr1200 for 5 drinks and a photo at prime time. £20 each

Old Town Square, has been the main part of the city since the 14th century with astounding gothic buildings, so we had a wonder round the tourist hub.

Astronomical Clock, can be climbed for £5 to see the views of the city. Only 10 min walk away from our apartment.

Charles Bridge, 16th century Bridge from the gothic period only a 13 min walk away and if you keep going or go down the stairs to left it will take you to The John Lennon wall, which is a cool attraction and if you want you can even add your own tribute.

Day two

Brunch at Monk, very cute and quaint place to eat and drink, usually have to wait for a table, but not for long. Near Old town, more in the art district, side streets.

I had a English breakfast which was great and a fresh orange juice, and Raphaella had her vegan option of avocado smash and mushrooms on toast with a very cute coffee. Kr560 which is £19 for the both of us. I’d give it 5* and ££ reasonable pricing, vegan friendly.

Illusion art museum, it’s right in Old town next across the way from the clock. Kc150 for student entry, lucky for me I still look young! But I wouldn’t recommend it, very bland and boring exhibits and only the downstairs area is the most interactive. It’s also fairly small so you get around it within about 30 mins.

You don’t really need more then one night and one day to see all the main tourist attractions and the nice food places to do a budget weekend in Prague!

We only took £120 which we also spent on transport to and from the airport, and still had a small amount left over.

So the total price for the trip came to £180 per person for 2 nights and 2 1/2 days.
