Visiting Prague

Visiting Prague is definitely in my bucket list and I’m happy that I can cross it off now. It is a beautiful old romantic city with lots of castles. My 2 little girls love it since they are currently obsessed with princesses and castles…hahaha.

We took the train from Wien Hauptbanhof station. It was a 4-hour train ride to Prague. We stayed at Hotel Rott, located in the Old Town Square. I love the location, very convenient.  The Executive Suite was pretty spacious, it’s like a 2-bedroom suite, overall is nice just look a little bit older room decor. Our complaints are the tub and shower are in a pretty interesting shape, check out the picture below and feel free to put any comment.

Also the safe box is really small. Can’t fit our laptop or tablet like any other normal size safe box. Other than that, we definitely like the size of the room and we got a big bottle of water in the room. I love it when I get free water bottles in the room. I think it’s a very helpful and useful feature. I wonder why not every hotel just give out free bottle of water. Another great thing about this hotel, other than the location, it provides free breakfast. When you travel with little kids, you will really appreciate the convenient of free hotel breakfast.

Since the hotel is located in the old town square, everything is pretty much walking distance. I definitely recommend this location if you plan to visit Prague. The castle district, Prazsky Hrad, is a little farther but walkable. We took a car ride from the hotel to the main entrance of the castle district and walked all the way back to the hotel. I would say, it looks more like a palace than a castle to me. I mean, like Palace of Versailles or Schonbrunn Palace. After Versailles and Schonbrunn, every palace looks pretty much the same to us, so we didn’t visit the inside of this palace, just took picture outside. A lot of things to see inside the Prazsky Hrad; St. Vitus Cathedral, Toy Museum, The Golden Lane, Winery, etc. It’s a whole day thing if you plan to visit.

The Old Town Square has lots of things for you to enjoy and see. Lots of restaurants, stores and amazing street performers. It’s very convenient for tourists to go around.

Another one that a little bit farther to visit is The Dancing House. It is one of Frank Gehry’s masterpieces. It’s a comic museum and it has a restaurant inside. It’s a very interesting architecture design. Not far from there, we saw a food bazaar. We found out that the event only held once a year, aren’t we lucky? Then not far from there, we saw children’s playground, nicely located by the river. We spent some times there before heading back to the hotel.

The only part that I wasn’t so crazy about Prague is the train station. It is built really deep below the ground. I was a little nervous taking the little kids on the really long elevator. Other than that, we love Prague so much; nice people and lots of interesting architecture, it’s beautiful. If I have a chance to visit again, I would try the beer spa, visit Cezky Krumlov and the bone church. Maybe I should not cross it off my bucket list yet ;).

Here are some beautiful sight seeing from our trip:
