To walk on quintessentially European streets and feel like you are on top of the world at Prague Castle
Beyond PragueOn our recent trip to the Czech capital, we decided to take a day trip from Prague to explore Bohemian Switzerland. On our previous trip, we had comfortably explored the little heavens of Czech Republic. These heavens were towns such as Karlovy Vary, Telč, Litomyšl and Česky Krumlov. Most of these towns could be covered on a day trip from Prague!Bohemian Switzerland was long on our bucket list ever since and we took the chance to explore it without further delay by making it a part of our trip. Having experienced the quaint vibes of Czech towns earlier, I had great expectations from Bohemian Switzerland. But it was also important to plan the trip well and explore accordingly.Where is Bohemian Switzerland?Bohemian Switzerland, also known as Czech Switzerland is a picturesque region in the north west of Czech Republic. It is an extension of Saxon National Park, a part of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Germany.Bohemian Switzerland is 2 hours away from the Czech capital, Prague by road. It’s the perfect destination for a day trip from Prague.Many people also take this day trip from Dresden, Germany.Day Trip From Prague | Tisa | Bohemian SwitzerlandPlanning with Northern HikesWe got in touch with our friends from the Northern Hikes, a leading adventure company in Prague which organizes some well-designed hikes from Prague to the Bohemian Switzerland region. They recommended we make the most of the ongoing winter season and try their Narnia Labyrinth and Bastei bridge hike. This meant, we were going to travel across 2 countries on our day trip from Prague. Also, this tour was apt for beginners and could be taken by anyone. So, we booked ourselves on the tour from Prague by coordinating with their team and were all pumped to explore this dream destination.Tour: Narnia Labyrinth and Bastei bridge hikeDuration: 10 hoursDistance: 6kmsInclusions: Pick up & drop from hotel/hostel, transport, guide, breakfast, a lá carté lunch (inclusive of vegan options), waterCost: EUR150 per personPreparationsWe were all set for the big day, to explore a destination that was on our bucket list for a while.Apart from sleeping early to rest well before our hike, we ensured we had the following list in place:Comfortable shoesWinter wear: Thermals, Jackets, Gloves, Warm Socks and BeaniesWater bottleChocolateCameraPassport (we always carry it along when travelling abroad)Narnia Labyrinth and Bastei Bridge Hike with Northern Hikes
Prague is one of the cheaper cities in Europe and thus the private cabs are not as expensive as some of the other Western European nations. We managed to reach our Hotel from the Airport in a private Mercedes in about 20 Euros by booking it in advance online. The chauffeur stood at the airport with a cardboard having my name on it which gave me a sense of luxury in the usually very expensive European nations. I had booked a 5 Star Hotel with an approximate cost of Rs 8000 for 2 nights inclusive of breakfast.
Day 3:Our 1st stop of the day was Prague castle. Bought 30 min ticket and took metro from Mustek to Malostranska and tram 22 further to Prazsky hrad (Czeck for Prague castle). The metro/tram stop is just infront of entrance to Castle. It is the easiest way to reach here. Be at Castle’s entrance maximum by 9 AM to avoid long queues for security check and maddening crowds. Castle District consists of St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George’s Basilica, Rosenberg palace, Golden Lane, Royal palace where president still resides sometimes, Lobkowicz Palace, vineyards and South gardens. Access to castle district is free of cost, therefore we did not feel any need to buy tickets unless you want to see above mentioned churches, palaces (which are actually museums now and towers from inside). Entry to Golden Lane is free post 5 PM. It is a long sloping cobblestone pathway lined with tiny, charming and colorful dwellings. It has been preserved in its original form and not to be missed at all! Tickets are priced at 250 CZK onwards. St. Vitus Cathedral is accessible till certain point without tickets. Its architecture is magnificent. It has beautiful stained glasses inside and wonderful Gothic appearance outside which I felt is more admiring.
Day 2:We had breakfast at Starbucks and straight away rushed towards Sky Service tandem jump’s office located in Old town square. Yes! We were going to sky dive today! Make sure to book an early morning slot otherwise almost entire day will be gone in Sky diving. Also, reach their office atleast half an hour before your time slot so as to complete the initial formalities otherwise you will be sent in next slot and others will be preferred over you. They are very time punctual!! We booked our package on their website atleast a month before and paid half of the amount.For skydiving you will be transported to a small town located outside Prague. It’s a 1.5-hour journey. Enjoy the scenic countryside views of Czech enroute! Bring along some snacks or lunch. The whole experience was absolutely out of the world and full on adventurous. If you are prone to motion sickness then do not forget to bring suitable pills along as you might feel dizzy or vomit post diving.With every skydive package taken from this company you get to choose one complimentary offer from Hop on Hop off coupons, pub crawl passes or some restaurant’s food coupons. We chose HOHO coupons since we had already booked Pub crawl tickets.Well, to board a HOHO bus you will first need to redeem these coupons for tickets which can be done from a company specific HOHO bus ticket counter only and not just any kiosk located in Wencelas square (there are a few companies running their own HOHO buses and tours). Finally, on getting our tickets post much struggle, we hopped on to one such bus. But we did not find it much useful. Buses are not open therefore you are not able to see most of the places being talked about on audio guide.Post covering New town (Prominent places in New town are Wenceslas Square, The National Museum which was getting renovated, Jan Palach Memorial Cross, The Beer Factory and The Dancing House – overly hyped place) in HOHO bus, we got off at Malastrana (Little Quarter). It is nestled underneath the Prague castle, on one of the ends of Charles Bridge, opposite Old Town Square. Its cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque buildings, restaurants, cafes and churches. It’s busy square is always bustling with people. Its metro/tram stop is called Malostranska. We visited St. Nicholas Cathedral, small beautiful church in Malastrana. While walking towards old town square we accidentally stumbled upon Wallenstein Palace Gardens. The grounds are peaceful and well maintained. I saw white peacocks for the first time in my life wandering around freely.
Post having lunch we went back to our Airbnb apartment, freshened up and slept. In evening, we went for leisure walk around Old town square and Charles bridge. Enroute we came across this farmer market which goes on till 6-7 PM daily. You will find fresh fruits, magnets, souvenirs and other local things at very reasonable prices. Metro/tram stop of Old town square is called Staromestska.
1.Travel on foot in Prague to get the most wonderful experience from UNESCO protected sites such as Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. Don’t be surprised if the cobbled lanes, beautiful architecture and fascinating history leave you spellbound!
I love Czechia. I love it so much that I have visited Czech Republic 8 times in past one year. In this post I will be specifically covering Bohemian Switzerland. It lies in the northern part of Czechia along with German Border. The area is covered with forest and sandstone hills which use to lie under the sea millions of years ago. There are a number of trails you can do in this region. Each one of them giving you a unique experience. I will be specifically covering the one I took which leads you straight to Pravčická brána, the largest natural Sandstone Arch in Europe. You may have spotted this sight in the movie Narnia. I have attached a video above which covers my Trip to Czechia and Slovakia

You can always plan the Budapest Pub Crawl on your own, but it does make sense to sign up with a walking tour as it helps you skip the long queues. I signed up for the Budapest Pub Crawl organized by AllNightCrash Budapest Pub Crawl.#1 - DiVino Wine Bar
To visit the ruin bars of Budapest and understand how to turn a garage into a happening club
1. Relax at an Ottoman bathhouse at 3AM or play chess while dipping in the pool at Szechenyi
Budapest is the savior of every hungry photographer’s soul, whether they are professionals or mere amateurs. No matter what angle you turn your camera to you’ll either witness the lucid ripples that form in the glowing Danube or you’ll capture the magnificent city which adorns itself with rich antiquated buildings. However, my aim of going to Budapest was simply to scratch off “Paris of the east” off my bucket list. So, along with my friends and family, we toured Eastern Europe by exploring Budapest, Prague, Česky Krumlov, Salzburg and Vienna.
Day 8:We reached Budapest at 10:30 AM from Vienna on 19th August 2017 by train. Booked tickets on OBB app 2 months before the trip. Accommodation was reserved through Airbnb. Our apartment was located very close to Szimpla Kert and other ruin bars. We were in Budapest only for a day. Someone told my friend that Budapest is extremely beautiful at night so we came here only to witness that. But, I feel Budapest had more to offer than only night views!
Budapest was amazingly cheaper to stay, if compared to the two closest capitals Vienna and Bratislava and even the other capitals nearby. A 6 or 8 bed dormitory in Budapest cost just as much as it does in Southeast Asia. Despite a very favored location, the place I was staying at, called Avenue Hostel charged only 6 Euros per night, including free breakfast. But if you can stay a little outside of the main center, you can find something more cheaper — say 4 or 5 Euros per night. Consider paying nearly double for everything for a similar experience in Vienna or Bratislava. Or perhaps three or four times more if visiting Zurich, or somewhere else in Switzerland.
Budapest is a beautiful city and its charm has often led to it being called the 'Paris of the East'. It remains a popular destination because of its low prices, beautiful architecture, youthful spirit, vibrant nightlife, and history. It has a complex past that has resulted in a beautifully diverse culture, reflected in every corner of the city. The 19th century Chain Bridge, connecting Buda and Pest, the two parts of the city divided by the Danube river, is a great example of the architectural marvels that this city has to offer. Sitting on the banks of Danube, while the sun sets and the city lights up, is one of the most peaceful and beautiful experiences in Europe. In November, Budapest is chilly and has that beautiful wintry glow about it that pulls you closer with each turn you take.Top things to see and do: Take a dip at the Thermal Baths; grab a glass of local wine at a Hungarian Ruin Bar; walk through the Central Market Hall; trek to Gellert Hill; marvel at the architectural wonder of the Parliament; witness the gory history of World War II at the Jewish Quarter.Flight cost: Return airfare from Delhi in the month of November starts from ₹32,294.Daily budget: Average daily expenses can range anywhere between 10,000 Hungarian Forint to 25,000 Hungarian Forint (₹2,500 to ₹6,200) which includes accommodation, sightseeing, meals and transport.Where to stay: Park Inn by Radisson; Six Inn Hotel. You can check out more options here.
If God ever gives me an opportunity to settle down anywhere else away from home , this place would be it . The drive from Salzburg to Budapest was a long one , but on reaching the city , all the soreness just vanished and we were fresh as a horse . Budapest is basically bifurcated into two parts by the river Danube flowing through the middle of the city and housing the most important centres on either side . The Hilly side is called Buda and the plain, Pest . I can't exactly vouch for its authenticity as I'm giving you the guide's version . Our tour bus led us through the important landmarks of the city and dropped us at the city centre . The Hungarian Forint being weaker than the Rupee , we went on a shopping spree and half of my credit card limit got exhausted there itself at the shopping avenues , but wait the highlight is yet to come . Come evening and we were taken for a river cruise on the Danube , and God it was so beautiful with the sun going down and the lights of the buildings beside the Danube ,shimmering . A trivia , I'd like to mention . Many of us have watched the blockbuster movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam , and we were told that the place is Italy , wrong . The bridge over which the famous scene happens with Aishwarya Rai running to Ajay Devgan is the Széchenyi Chain Bridge . I remember every moment of that cruise where we were sitting on the open top of the cruise with a complimentary glass of wine and enjoyed the serenity and the beauty of the place .Etched in my memories forever .

A city that’s a juxtaposition of Astro-Hungarian architect with modern art and pop culture, is often missed by tourists. It’s definite that Zagreb doesn’t make to a traveler’s wishlist, but the city has more to offer than one can imagine.
This place also offers lovely sea food...which you will find at almost every second eating outlet in the area.
Croatia’s capital is an underrated destination waiting to be explored. It is not as popular as Dubrovnik or Split, but is a quintessential metropolitan city combining elegant 19th century buildings with plenty of cultural divisions and a vibrant cafe life. It is a great place to discover charming boutiques selling unique dresses, shopping for souvenirs, and tasting local delicacies. It is also a good place to visit undulating hills and charming villages nearby.
Explore Croatia's National Parks - Plitvice Lakes National Park (2 hrs from Zagreb), Krka National Park (near Dalmatia) and the Paklenica National Park. Still got time left, walk around the beautiful town of Dubrovnik.Best Time To Visit: Visit Croatia's underwater winery from May to June, and September to OctoberAddress: Janjina 62, 20246 Poluotok Pelješac, Croatia - HrvatskaGetting There: The nearest airport is in Dubrovnik. The Edivo Wine Bar is an hour away from Dubrovnik.Suggested Stay:Apartment Lemes
We did try to be careful, but I cannot exactly narrate how it did or must have happened. 15 minutes ago it was there, a few tram stations later it wasn’t.WHAT FOLLOWED?A trip to the police station, registering an FIR, calls to India to block the cards and of course, some panic and worries and moments to grieve over an otherwise while budgeted trip!His passport was with me, hence safe. (So no insurance money for the Gujju lad ???? )WHAT DID WE LEARN?You can be careful, but every thief has his/her day!Always scatter your money and keep while travelling! (I do that, Parichay doesn’t!)Know the contents of your wallet (including the card details)Keep quiet at the police station! ????When you are over this, there is scene 2 as well!SCENE 2- ZAGREB TO DUBROVNIK

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and the largest city of the same. It was once part of the glorious Hungarian Empire, and it has a very interesting history inspired by the German, Hungarian, Austrian, Czech, and Serbian cultures.It is located both on the bank of the River Danube, and the River Morava on the left side. Interestingly, it was not called ‘Bratislava’ until 1919. It used to be called ‘Pressburg’ due to the high erstwhile German population here.I spent my Sunday here, and here is a list of ‘Must go’ places in Bratislava.Tea store in an underground bomb shelter: There is a beautiful little tea store gorgeously decorated which used to be an underground bomb shelter during the war. They serve several kinds of tea, and it’s one of the few (or maybe only) place in Bratislava that serves you amazing Indian Masala Chai. For tea addicts, you can’t miss this place!2. Ice cream in black cones: Now for those who are ‘meh’ about ice cream, please skip this point. However, for those who aren’t, this is a major fun activity to do in the city square. You get ice cream in these beautifully crafted black cones! Just like this.3. The Bratislava castle: If castles are your thing, then you should not miss this. The castle is nestled on a hill overlooking the Danube river. It makes for a really picturesque location.Credit: Kongres magazine4. Hlavne Namestie: This is the city square in Bratislava. It has a very vintage old-world vibe coupled with several modern restaurants, and shops. So if you want your fix of old town mixed with contemporary, then this is your place to be!You can take the old city tour in a toy train from just outside the French embassy, and enjoy beautiful sights of the city like the hall where Mozart gave his only performance in Slovakia, the Roland fountain and the old town hall.5. The cumil or ‘Man at work’: This is the rarest statue that I have ever seen. Bratislava is famous for this statue of a man who is peeping out of a manhole to stare at the people walking on the street. You almost miss it until you see a swarm of people around this statue taking pictures.The old tour also shows you this interesting landmark, towards which you can proceed once the tour is done.Credit : Trip advisor
We started at 9 am from Vienna and went on with our trip to Bratislava , the capital of Slovakia . A picturesque drive through huge roads with farmlands and windmills looking down upon you and waving goodbye . We reached this wonderful place . A lot of history is embedded into this city as the guide told us . The beautiful cobblestone roads and dimly lit alleys , the graffiti on the walls . It's a different charm altogether . After describing a brief history of the place through the streets we were taken to the town square where we spend good time and we're taken to the Linder hotel . Now I can't skip mentioning this part . We luckily got a room on the 10th floor of this hotel , one of the best properties I have ever stayed in . The hotel connects to a mall , which allows you ample shopping and eating opportunities if you are a foodie . The view from the room was amazing as we could see till distant horizons with a glass of wine from the balcony. Bratislava will be remembered .
The first time I went to Bratislava, I didn’t have high expectations. After four days spent in this city - I had to admit - I was so pleasantly surprised that I couldn’t believe it! Bratislava is a gorgeous city, small and quiet but, at the same time, colorful and full of surprises. It has a very nice Old Town and a lot of historical places to visit, but also everything you need for your social activities. Well, you will see with your own eyes! :) Anyway, during your first visit to Bratislava there are 5 things to do that, in my opinion, will let your stay be more interesting.A visit to the Blue Church This teeny-tiny church is one of the most impressive things you will see in Bratislava. Officially named St. Elizabeth Church, like from a fairy tale it is completely blue: the facade, the mosaics, the majolicas, the interior, even the roof is tiled with blue-glazed ceramics. The church is an art nouveau building, built in the early 20th century, and it’s situated in a very nice area, in the eastern part of the Old Town of Bratislava. You absolutely have to visit the Blue Church, and don’t forget your camera: you will need it! :)
Bratislava is simple old world charm. I can't stress how friendly and helpful the people are. They are simply waiting for you to ask them directions! While entering the city, the Brastislava Hrad (castle) is an imposing sight and the Old Town is enchanting. When backpacking in Europe alone, chuck other cities to definitely stop by Bratislava as it will welcome you with open arms.Getting around in BratislavaWalking around the Old Town is your best option. A good walk will get you all around the historic centre, main square and by lanes that are open for exploration. To get around the city, buses are the best bet. Tickets are available at magazine shops or most bus stops have a ticketing machine. Again, don't forget to punch in your ticket. While Slovakia uses the euro, it's much cheaper than other neighbouring countries.Accommodation in BratislavaThere are tons of good hostels near the Old Town and the Castle. A personal recommendation would be to stay in the hostels to get a feel of the pulse of the city. Other than that, Airbnbs and hotels are the usual options. Just remember that there are plenty of walks uphill and downhill so it will be easier on you if you're a bit fit.What to eat in BratislavaWhile most dishes have meat, carbs like potatoes, bread and noodles are staples. Dairy products are also very popular. When backpacking in Europe alone and you find yourself in the Slovakian capital, try the Bryndzové Halušky or potato dumplings that are similar to gnocchi served with sheep’s milk cheese. The goulash is also very popular which is a Hungarian specialty.

#CeskyKrumlov – 179,914 photos
One can get to Cesky Krumlov by taking a train from Salzburg to Ceske Budejovice and then a bus from there, but I preferred to take a shuttle. There are a number of them - CK Shuttle, Green Shuttle etc.Half an hour into the ride and I knew I had made the right decision. We were driving through scenic landscapes, and it kept getting better as we approached Cesky Krumlov.Cesky Krumlov is small, and getting around is quite easy. Wherever you are staying, you are never too far from the main square. And the main square was where all the action was - great food and wine and music. Perfect way to ring in the new year!
2 | Budapest + CESKY KRUMLOV + PragueBudapest has quickly become a favorite destination with travelers worldwide with it’s tangible culture and beautiful architecture. Take a night cruise along the Danube for amazing views of the city bathed in uplighting and be sure to visit the famous Szechenyi baths. Move on to the small UNESCO town of Cesky Krumlov, in the Czech Republic, then move on to the uber-romantic city of Prague. Walking the Charles Bridge at sunset is a memory you’ll cherish forever. Also be sure to feast on a few sugary hot donuts, called trdelniks, sold on the street.
Cesky Krumolov( UNESCO World Heritage site ) a small bohemian town embodies all the above and more, at affordable rates. It is a short 3 hour bus ride from Prague. The drive itself is intriguing, by nightfall, small villages and town emerge along the way cloaked in mist, things that we have mostly witnessed in movies. From afar they almost appear like a hamlet disguised as the town of Sleepy Hollow. There are a number of hotels and guest houses to select from, given our faith in Trip advisor; we did select a cute and cozy place to stay.
The small town of Český Krumlov dating back to the 13th Century in Southern Bohemia, Czech Republic has to be my favorite. Its towering castle perched atop the hill, overlooking the painted Renaissance and Baroque architecture clustered around the Vltava River, is its crowning glory. The castle is the second largest in the country, comprising of forty buildings and palaces built around five castle courts and a castle park, spanning an area of seven hectares. Český Krumlov’s second gem is the Church of St. Vitus (15th Century) with frescoes from the same period. A climb up the castle’s round tower for just the right picture, a candle at the church, lazing in the old town square awash with golden sunshine, and a steak by the river – it was not just another day for me.
