Prague Weekend Guide for Solo Female Traveler

Prague has been on my ‘to-go’ list for years, so after a girls’ trip trip to Berlin, I added on a long weekend to this beautiful city.  I hadn’t traveled solo in a long time, and was excited to have a few days to explore a new city on my own, at my own pace. Prague is beautiful, walkable city, with cobblestone streets and amazing architecture. It was not bombed in WWII and thus managed to keep it’s pre-war beauty at a time when many other European cities were unable to do so. It’s walkable and has so many things to see and do. It is also a city known for it’s many musical performances, so be sure to add those to your visit as well! I was only there for a few days and would love to return, perhaps when it’s a bit warmer (!), another time.

Hotel: Rott Hotel, located in the heart of the Old City. Breakfast included. As I was traveling solo I decided to stay in the heart of city, where everything was walkable and close by. Great location/great hotel.

 

Day 1, Friday:

  • Arrived via train from Berlin. Walked to hotel from train station (although a suitcase ‘rolling’ on the cobblestone streets can be tricky!).
  • Dinner: Marina Restaurant (with friends). Located on the water with amazing views of the castle and Charles Bridge – a great view for the first night in Prague.

Day 2, Saturday:

10:30-1:30:

  • Leaving from Wenceslas Square, took a three-hour walking tour of the Old Town and Jewish Quarter.
  • Opted for the ‘free tour’ via Civitatis (me and all the kids from the hostels!) where you pay what you wish after the tour, and had a great guide. She gave Prague history as we went along and pointed out all the primary attractions/buildings etc.
  • Stopped at an amazing bakery Elvira for pastry and coffee/chai along the way as well.

  • Late Lunch at Parlement (restaurance u parlamentu)- Czech food, good beer and a fun, casual atmosphere. At peak lunch time there is a line, but I wasn’t there until about 2 so only had about 15 minute wait. Had to get a beer and some traditional food!

  • Wandered across the Charles Bridge and explored the area for the afternoon.

  • Dinner: Small dinner and beer at a wonderful small restaurant I can’t recall name of!
  • Concert: Vivaldi’s The Four Season at a church near old town. 1-hour performance that was excellent! Everyone said to be sure to go to a music event while in town as music is everywhere…and they were right. This was perfect as it was music I loved, it was only an hour and it was in a stunning church. Check, check and check! I booked it the day before by doing a search of current music in Prague. If I had another night would have tried some jazz.

 

Day 3, Sunday:

  • Morning:  Castle tour. Walk to the castle and pick up ‘skip the line’ ticket via ‘Get Your Guide’ booked ahead of time. Given it was Sunday the church wasn’t open until noon.  The castle is large, and it takes some time to go through the main castle, the chapel, the small street where the workers used to live/work, and the main church. It got more crowded later in the day so it’s good to go early!

  • Lunch: Delicious vegan lunch (Best of the trip!) near the Mandarin Oriental Hotel at Dosa Dosa Bistro – still dreaming of the vegetarian curry! Affordable, chill atmosphere and DELICIOUS.
  • Walked up to the Petrin Lookout Tower, the ‘Eiffel Tower’ of Prague, the Castle side of the bridge (quick walk from Dosa Dosa). There is a broad city view from the top. You can walk down or take a tram down.

  • Dinner: Czech dinner at the Lokal – perfect last meal in Prague. It’s a causal but nice ‘beer hall restaurant’ with good czech food and beer. A bit of a wait but worth it. Finally broke down and had ‘fried cheese’ for dinner…and I have to say that it was delicious!

Day 4, Monday 

Leave for home
