Weekend Getaways from Prague
The morning at Prague was a pleasant one . The sun was shining and the cold winds were complementing the beauty of the surroundings. Prague involved a lot of walk through cobbled streets so we slipped into comfortable walking shoes . The first place we were taken to was the majestic St Vitus Cathedral which is a striking example of gothic and neo-gothic architecture dating back to the 12th century . For more information https://www.hrad.cz/en/prague-castle-for-visitors/objects-for-visitors/st.-vitus-cathedral-10330.After that we saw the museum of armamentarium adjacent to it and went on a walk towards the highlight of the tour , the famous Charle's Bridge . I wonder how many movies have been shot on this place and I felt blessed walking over it and soaking in the beauty of the place . With local painters lined up to paint the scenery and artists performing around every small corner , the wonderful statues . It was a sight to behold . We went on walking until we reached the town square which houses the famous Astronomical clock.The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still operating. Every hour the clock displays a beautiful play of puppets and the crowd just join in to watch the show. My passion for collecting wines from all over the world took me to a quaint shop with some excellent collections and amongst one I bought was the green fairy , Absinthe.Read more about it to know . The festivities were still in full flow on the town square but our hearts were getting heavier as the trip was nearing its closure .Finally the younger members of the group clubbed in to enjoy the last bit of the evening with a fantastic diner at a lovely pub plying live music . We called it a day .

Book Prague Tour Package
Ice pubI met a Chinese guy while walking down the maze and tower, we talked for a while about how they teach English in Chinese and about our plans for the following days. I had some coupons for free drinks in the Ice Pub from my hostel and neither of us felt we shouldn't use it. Which made us trace our way back to the city, and near Charles bridge was the Ice Pub. After paying a minimal entry fee we were provided with gloves and jacket to survive the minus degrees inside. Its freezing cold inside and drinking anything other that warm liquor will leave you motionless. We both took some Red bull+Vodka and danced to the music inside. They have a time limit of 15 minutes to stay inside the Ice pub after which you will be asked to leave. One time experience with a random stranger who turned out to be a nice guy :)

Riegrovy Sady Beer Garden
Riegrovy Sady Beer Garden OK so it’s not an actual attraction but it’s definitely a “go visit” place, especially during the summer. The Czech Republic is one of the world’s biggest producers of beer so its only right that while your here you indulge in a “local delicacy”…! On any given day with nice weather, Riegrovy Sady’s Beer Garden is packed with thirsty drinkers of all shapes and sizes; Czech, tourist, and expat alike. With a large projector screen, 3 different kinds of beer on tap, cocktails, wine, grilled food, and enough space for over 1000 visitors, it’s hard to not be happy here. TIP ALERT: Centrally located within the charming neighborhood of Vinohrady, Riegrovy Sady’s Beer Garden can be reached by any transport that connects to Náměstí Míru or Jiřího z Poděbrad, which are both a short walk away. Bus 135 stops at Na Smetance, which is very close to the main entrance of the park, and tram 11 stops at Italská, which is also close. Riegrovy Sady’s Beer Garden is opened from April to October.
Reduta Jazz Club
Being a musician I have always been open to different genres of music. However, I had never really gone for a Jazz concert. We wanted to skip the pub crawl and just sit back and relax. There was no better idea than listening to some live music.Reduta is one of the most popular Jazz Clubs in the world and Bill Clinton himself has played here.This was by far one of the best musical experience I have had. It was a Eargasm hearing a 15 piece instrumental Jazz Band peform for over an hour.My friends who have never listened to jazz in their life were reluctant to come for this. They thanked me after the concert was over.
