Prague for Students

Prague, the capital of Czech Republic has a lot to offer to its tourists right from medieval castles to beers. But as an ideal student getaway, the city is full of beauty and historic surprises more than any European hotspots.

The banks of River Vlatava are surrounded by the charismatic hills and surroundings of the Hradcany castle district while the other boasts of the 10th century medieval Old Town. There is no better way to appreciate both sides of Prague town than by strolling on Charles Bridge in the company of iconic 11th century statues.
Prague Castle, the northeastern part, left the Black Tower, in the middle: Daliborka
In the Old Town, you could possible meander on days admiring the medieval styled houses and churches. Start with the Baroque at the Church of Saint Nicholas, moving towards the Kinsky Palace and then finally the Astronomical Clock next to the Old Town Hall. It is quite an odd clock with a very difficult explanation of how exactly it works but still, the display involving the apostles is an interesting watch. On your way out, make sure to click a picture of the Gothic Powder Gate.
Catch a funicular from Little Quarter to the top of Prague's castle district to discover the climb of the observation tower which overlooks this amazing city. Then get down the hillside towards the castle by noon if you want to witness the changing of the guard on time. Also, make sure to visit St Vitus’s Cathedral and Golden Lane for a fanciful line of artisan cottages.

There is no other cheaper place to dine than Prague. You could picnic at the various parks and palace gardens or go in search of authentic Czech cuisine. Try traditional items such as beer flavoured ice cream and U Medvidku. One thing you shouldn't miss is a big mug of beer.
