Spring Break Part 3: Prague, Czech Republic

After about four days in Paris, our next and final stop was in Prague. Our flight to Prague was at 8 pm, so we went to bed as soon as we made it to our Airbnb. The next day, we woke up and our roommate Joy ubered to our Airbnb. The three of us then we met up with my big from my sorority, Nicole, who is currently studying abroad on another University of Pittsburgh program in Prague. She took us to a restaurant called Lokal Dlouhààà which had traditional Czech food, and endless sides. I got schnitzel with potatoes and it was very tasty. After lunch, Nicole took us to the John Lennon wall and we took some cute pictures. She then had to go to class, so Joy, Allison, and I went to Prague Castle to see the view of the entire city. The view was really cool, and it made me realize how pretty the architecture in Prague is. We then saw the Old Royal Palace and St. Virus Cathedral. Since it was very cold, we went into this cute shop and got tea and cookies. After warming up a little bit, we walked across Charles Bridge, and then headed back to the Airbnb. After resting for a little, we went to this Mexican restaurant by our Airbnb for dinner, and it was surprisingly really good. 

We spent our second day in Prague visiting different museums. We started the day by going to the Kafka museum which was very weird but interesting. Kafka’s life was pretty sad so it makes sense why he wrote such sad pieces. After that strange experience, we went to the Museum of Communism. This museum was extremely interesting, and I actually loved it. The displays required a lot of reading, and the translation was a little broken, but overall it was very cool. Even though the museum was extremely fascinating, it was a little draining, so we got an early dinner at this restaurant on the water which was very pretty. The food was also delicious, making the meal a nice ending to our spring break. Prague was so historically interesting, and also very cheap. I would love to go back and explore some more. Spring break was amazing, but very tiring, and I was very excited to get back to our apartment in Camden.
