The first weekend of 2017 me and my girlfriend we started on the way. We had an opportunity to travel wherever we wanted in the Czech Republic in the first class trains so we decided to go to Prague on Saturday (because we have never been to Prague when there was a snow) and the next day we went to Karlovy Vary. This post will be about our trip to Prague.
We started as always in Ústí nad Labem and from there we went by Eurocity train directly to Prague. The train was full of people, but we could travel in the frist class, so we went there and there were only a few people, it was cool to have first class just for us.
The first station in Prague was Holešovice and it was the station where we got off the train and our walk through the frozen Prague could started. That day was almost -15 °C but we were properly dressed, so it wasn’t so cold for us.
Our first stop was next to Výstaviště Praha, where we took our first photos and then we continued to AC Sparta Prague stadium, which is the stadium of my favorite team. The next stop was Prague Metronome on Letná near the stadium and there is one of my most favorite views of Prague. We took a lot of photos there and it was time to move on.
As the last time we wanted to visit Prague Castle, but when we came near the castle there were so many people waiting for a security check. I hate waiting in the line and it was so cold so we walked around the castle and we went on Hradčany Square where is another entrance, but again, there were so many people waiting in the line. At least we took there few pictures of Prague roofs with a snow and there was a beautiful view.
From the square we went down to Lesser Town and when we came near the Charles Bridge I decided to climb to Lesser Town Bridge Tower which was on my list to visit. There is an amazing view of Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and Lesser Town, you should definitely go there if you will be in Prague!
After we crossed the Charles Bridge, we went to the Old Town Square for a few minutes, then we went to shopping mall Palladium for something to eat and then we went by subway to IKEA because we had a lot of time and we wanted to look for something. We bought there only a few things and after about an hour we went by a subway to the train station to wait for a train back to Ústí nad Labem.
It was a great trip, our first to Prague during the snow season and we enjoyed it there. Also the first class was great but only because we had a privacy and we were in the railway car almost alone, not so special as we thought.
You can check out my photos from the trip on my Instagram, as always!
