Zack had a four day weekend for Easter (which also happened to fall on April Fools Day AND our two year wedding anniversary), and our friend Alex was visiting from Los Angeles, so we decided to take advantage of the long weekend and take a train from Budapest to Prague.
The train ride was about 6 hours, but there’s something about taking a train that feels magical. (Maybe because I always think about Harry Potter when I’m on a train?) We packed a lunch and enjoyed the ride through the countrysides of Hungary, Slovakia, and finally, the Czech Republic.
We arrived to Prague in the late afternoon and took the evening to do a little exploring, enjoy the Easter festival in Old Town Square, and watch the sunset over Charles Bridge. Saturday + Sunday were packed full with sightseeing, eating, and wandering around the city, before our train ride back to Budapest on Monday. Seriously, Prague is SO beautiful. From the winding, cobblestone streets to the colorful buildings, I’m obsessed.
So stop whatever your doing, and start planning your own trip, because there’s so much to do and see! Below I’m recounting my weekend in Prague to help you plan your trip (because trust me, you’ll want to start packing your bags immediately).
Anyone been to Prague before? Did you love it as much as I did? Definitely would love to visit again, maybe when the weather is a little warmer!
