Wanderlust Wonderland brings you: a travel guide for ordinary travelers, with must-sees, tips and tricks and the most delicious food, for ordinary travelers, like you and me.
Prague was really special. It was a location that I’d never thought of visiting, in the days before the plans to travel everywhere and anywhere. But I’m really glad our student’s association did decide to visit this city. Prague is lovely, rich with history, filled with beautiful architecture and great food. And best of all: the prices are low. Time for a Travel Guide to Prague!

After four days of Prague, our student’s association had planned for something a little different. I wasn’t sure what the plan was, but we got onto a train towards Kutna Hora. And then I was horrified to see what they had planned…
On our third day in Prague, we had already seen quite some highlights, like Wallenstein Palace, the astronomical clock, some synagogues and Prague castle. But there were a few that we hadn’t had the time for yet. One of them was the Franz Kafka museum, where I really wanted to go, and another one was the Petrin hill, where our group wanted to spend some time, so that’s where we started on our third day.
On our second day in Prague, we explored the old town and learned some more about the history of the city. We visited some beautiful and impressive synagogues and checked out the highlights such as the astronomical clock and the týnchurch.
After visiting Prague Castle, we decided to have lunch in the gardens of the Wallenstein Palace. They were absolutely gorgeous. It wasn’t too crowded, the sun was shining and there were trees and flowers blooming everywhere.
The Wallenstein gardens really were a highlight for me. When the city highlights like prague castle can be quite bustling with tourists, these gardens were calm and serene. Beautiful fountains, impressing statues and a really awesome dripstone wall.
After staring at the dripstone wall for quite some time, making out faces and animals, we wandered through Nerudova, a historical street that was named after writer Jan Neruda (whom I’ve never heard of, by the way). The houses in Nerudova didn’t have numbers until 1770. Instead, they used cute little signs above the doors. It’s fun to walk through the street and look at the different signs.
Every year in university, our student’s association organised a trip abroad. We had been to Lisbon and Budapest already, and in our third year we visited Prague. It’s such a beautiful city with lots of history. On our first day there, we wandered around the city, leaving the old town for another day and focusing on the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and The Golden Lane.
