journeypod is your guide to luxury travel around the world. Hello fellow jet-setters, we are in Prague, Czech Republic!
Prague lies on the Vltava River in the heart of Central Europe. Itâs accessible via train from Vienna, Salzburg, and Zurich. Prague is a very walk-able cityâand everywhere you walk you see history.
The opportunities for travelers in Prague are endlessâfrom bustling artists on the Charles Bridge to relaxing in pubs with the local âpivoâ? (beer), this Central European city is sure to âwowâ? you! To drink beer with the locals, check out U Zlateho Tygra or U Pavouka (The Spider).
Highlights include the Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square and of course, Prague Castle. If you are looking for a great gift that screams Prague, try smuggling some Beckerovka (want to know what this isâcheck out our Destination Guide on Prague) back to the States, or for a more legal gift, a marionette.When youâre ready to lay your head to rest, head to the journeyPod pick, Hotel Josef. Hotel Josef. journeyPod met with Milena Findeis, the Public Relations Manager of the Hotel Josef.
