Czech out Prague

Our adventures have taken us to many cities throughout the world including one of the main cultural centers of Europe and the capital of the Czech Republic — Prague! This is a city that can give you a cultural overload and a hangover at the same time, but both are totally worth the experience. It is jam-packed with historical museums, cool attractions, unique nightclubs, and wonderful Budvar!

Guarding Prague Castle. He may not look like much...but I'm sure he can take you down with just one finger.

There are almost too many museums/attractions in this city to count. A few of the main ones we visited were Prague Castle (the biggest ancient castle in the world), Charles Bridge (lots of tourists and shopping), Týn Church (a cool Gothic church), and the Historic Centre of Prague (UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Prague is also home to some interesting/weird/cool art and statues. Some of the stuff we found was a little too risque for our blog though – gotta love Europe!

Aside from the cultural overload, Prague also offers a bunch of great shopping spots and unique drinks!

So to wrap up (you may be beginning to sense a trend here) Prague was pretty awesome, but I just wish we had more time to explore. We were only here a couple days, but we needed at least a couple more to fully experience the city. The Jessetters would like to go back to Prague one day…and not just to drink more Budvar.
