Hey guys! It’s been pretty busy over here at school with classes lately which is why I haven’t posted anything in what seems like forever. This post is going to be all about my favorite day trips to take from Prague, Czech Republic. As some of you know, I spent my summer there last summer and there were a few quick day trips that I would love to share with you. If you’re planning on spending time in Prague at all or if you happen to be in need of some day trip ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
- Cesky Krumlov
The first day trip I would recommend is going to Cesky Krumlov. It is an adorable town about two hours away from Prague and there are a TON of things to do. In the summer it is a very popular place for people to go rafting and drink along the river. There is a gorgeous castle to tour (and an incredible view from the top of the castle if you’re willing to take a little bit of a hike up some stairs), a stunning garden, fun little shops, and numerous restaurants. The town is fairly small so walking through its entirety does not take long at all. You can easily access this charming town by car, bus, or train. Cesky Krumlov is also a UNESCO world heritage site!
2. Dresden, Germany
I stopped in Dresden kind of last minute on my way from Berlin back to Prague and I was so glad that I did! It is only about an hour and a half train ride from Prague and the architecture in this adorable little town is amazing. My favorite place in Dresden would have to be the Zwinger (pictured) because of how beautiful the gardens were and all of the historical buildings surrounding it. There is also a lovely church that offers mass for the public to go to, as well as various art museums. The royal palace is also worth taking a look at. The old town is my favorite part of the city because the streets are lined in cobblestones, delicious restaurants, and there is a scenic river view.
3. Kutna Hora
Kutna Hora is home to the Bone Church, a church, otherwise known as Sedlec Ossuary. This church is adorned with human bones throughout the entire church. Besides the chilling church, it is also home to St. Barbara’s church which is known for its beautiful medieval architecture situated in the old town part of the city. My roommates and I happened to visit Kutna Hora on the same day as the medieval festival which made the trip extremely lively. The Old Town area has somewhat windy roads and is hilly so be sure to wear comfortable shoes especially if you plan on walking a lot.
