Stop 2: Prague, Czech Republic

“Czeching it all out”

Where to go

Prague, Czech Republic

How to get there

If coming from Budapest use Flix Bus tickets are around $25 if you book a couple months in advance. You will get off at Florenc station which is very close to downtown.

What to see

Stay at Hostel Orange . This is in Wischmester Square with lots to do and close to all big attractions. It has clean beds, free coffee, bar crawls, and other festivities during your stay. We stayed for 3 nights in Prague but we wish we would’ve stayed for 4.

Go to Old Town Square, it has magnificent historical buildings. Dinner is rather expensive in the square but you can easily eat on a side street for a much more reasonable price.

Spend at least a half day on the other side of the river. There you will find the Prague castle which is beautiful. Checkout the Letna beer garden while over there!

While District 1 in Prague is the most popular, take some time exploring the other areas of the city.

Budget tip: Water is more expensive than beer at most restaurants. Pack a water bottle for the day!

If you are into European football, go to Dubliner Irish Pub to watch a game! There are TVs on all sides and it’s a great atmosphere. We watched Manchester City vs Arsenal and the pub was full.

Sbohem Prague! Hallo Salzburg!

Where to go, How to get there, & What to see in Budapest, Hungary

“Hungary for an adventure”

Where to go

Budapest, Hungary

How to get there

If flying, use Skyscanner to find the cheapest flights. If you are coming from a surrounding country I recommend using FlixBus which I will be posting about soon!

While in the city I recommend mostly walking because there is so much to see. When it is too far to walk, take the metro…it is safe, fast and cheap!

What to see

I would stay at Hopstel Hostel. Fairly close to downtown & has an amazing atmosphere. Take two steps out of your door and you are in a square of the biggest multi tap craft beer bar & gastro-garden in Hungary! Rooms are only $30 a night! If you’re looking for affordable and convenient this place is for you.

You definitely should checkout Gellert Hill which has a spectacular view of the city!

Walk down Vaci Street which has a ton of outside authentic restaurants, high end shopping, and live music.

Budapest is famous for its thermal baths and there are many to choose from. I recommend the Szechenyi Baths. Go on a weekday for cheaper prices! Make sure to bring water sandals if you have them to stay clean.

For a cheap dinner, grab a Gyro from one of the stands and take it to one of the bridges on the Danube River. You can sit on the edge of it watching the sunset!

Hungarian food is very unique, I recommend trying an authentic meal at least once..very tasty!

Venture to the other side of the Dunabe River (Buda side) and you will find many historical sites, the Buda Castle, incredible views of the city, & Dracula’s Castle! You can see a ton of stuff for free…the tours aren’t necessary if you are traveling on a budget.

Viszlát Budapest you were a city to remember. Ahoj Prague!
