Day 2- Vienna- (Temp- 8 degrees C) We took it slow and decided to acclimatize ourselves to the city. We walked our way (40mins away) from the hostel to the Schonbrunn Palace, though we had the option to take the trams/ metros we chose to walk and stop at local eateries and shops. The palace has a beautiful facade surrounded by an amazing garden. A trip to this palace is worth your time.
Stephansdom or the St. Stephen's Cathedral is a beautiful Gothic church in the busy centre of Vienna at Stephansplatz. The towering church is ornately patterned and invites you with its delicate and intricate artwork. I remember standing on the pavement across the Church, still and just admiring the architectural brilliance. Don't break your neck as you stretch it to take in the look of the Cathedral in its full glory, though! The Cathedral offers beautiful view of the city from the top. For the health freaks, there are stairs - 343 steps to be precise! For those who would rather take the lift, you are my friend! Just go inside the church and a lift would take you up, of course with a fee.
Day3- Vienna to Prague. (Temp 10 degrees C) We caught the RegioJet (also called Student Agency) bus from Vienna Stadion bus station to Praha Florenc station. I'd recommend using these buses as they were punctual, clean, comfortable, with on board WiFi (that not many trains have), free on board refreshments and at half the price of a train (with similar travel time).
