My Travel Bucket List: Prague


As I mentioned in last week’s Month in Review post, this month will be filled with travel and in just one weeks time (eek!) Dave and I, and are really good friend will be meeting up in Prague.

This isn’t my first trip to Prague. I visited with my parents way back in 1995 at the tender age of 9. I have a few memories of the trip–like riding a funicular, seeing the astronomical clock and getting sick in Karlovy Vary—but, I don’t really remember it. So, I plan on doing, seeing and eating a lot of things I’ve done, seen and eaten before, plus a few new things along the way.

Top Ten Things I’m Excited to See, Do and Eat:

Walking Tour

Walking tours are my new favourite way to discover a city, it’s sights and learn about it’s history. Prague seems to have a number to choose from, so hopefully I can convince the guys to go on at least one with me.

Drink Beer (Perhaps in a Beer Garden)

When in Prague!

See pRague Castle

See The Charles Bridge

Eat Guláš

I’ve been told by trusted sources that some of the best guláš (or goulash) can be found in Prague, and I intend to find it.

Apparently, atop Vyšehrad offers some of the best views of the city. Continuing my quest to see Europe from above, I hope we can make a quick pitstop to take advantage of the view.

See Old Town

See the Old Town Hall & the Astrological Clock

Eat Vepřo-knedlo-zelo

Or roast pork, bread dumplings and sauerkraut – one of my favourite Czech meals. In all honesty, it’s not the prettiest meal, but trust me, it tastes amazing!

This is probably my most favourite Czech meal. I have amazing memories of gorging myself on these fruit filled dumplings topped with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar. They are the aforementioned food that made me sick in Karlovy Vary, but that was my own fault because I’d been eating them as often as they were offered to me and in large quantities—apparently I thought seven was a reasonable number, which it’s not–not at 9, not at 30.

What would you recommend I add to my list?
