Summer in Prague
by Kristy Tayyara
July 19, 2017
Prague is in the middle of a new wave, where people are taking innovation and creativity to the next level. The city could very well be 'the new Berlin'. Cafés, bars, restaurants and events are constantly popping up all over the city and being the first one to discover them has become a bit of a competition on Instagram.
Summer in Prague means spending your time outdoors as much as you possibly can. Naplavka (by the river), Letna Beer Garden and Riegrovy Sady are the three top summer spots if you wish to mingle with a cool crowd while admiring the city’s most charming views.
If you have enough time to venture out of Prague and want to get away from the urban buzz, you’ll be pleased to know that you won’t need to drive too far from the city to end up in a tranquil environment, where the spectacular nature setting makes it ideal for hiking and biking in the heart of nature.
For those who opt to stay in the city, your solution to escaping the crowds is to rent your own little motorboat, cruise along the river and see Prague in a completely new light.
Today’s Outlook contributor Kristy Tayyara sums up her top tips on how to make the most out of your visit to her home city, Prague. Enjoy!
