Fairy tale Old town Prague

Fairy tale Old town Prague

We said good bye to Berlin as we boarded train to Prague.

Taking the train in Europe

We would only know which platform our train is going to come from few minutes before departure on the board and the train will not stay long. Because we are traveling with Alyssa and her stroller, we had to be efficient because there would be a queue and train doesn’t stop for long. When the train came, Alyssa and I would hop on first and I would helped Sari lifting our suitcases and bags. Because we didn’t reserve seats on the train to Prague, we need to find seats that doesn’t have destination written on the small panel on the wall above the seat.

Trains in Germany and Czech is free for children below 6 years old. Alyssa was 3 years old so she was free. But when we bought the ticket we still had to input her name and printed her free ticket. We bought our train tickets online thru official German Trains website: here
The tickets could either be printed or saved to our phone to show the conductor when they later inspect all the passengers for ticket. 

Getting from Prague Train Station to Prague City

Train from Berlin to Prague took 4hours and 10minutes. We are staying in Ibis Old Town Prague, 1.1km from train station. It was raining so we ordered Uber. We have read that ordering Uber is safer than taking taxi at the booth in the train station. We could also take the tram from the train station to our Hotel.

After checking in we started to explore Old Town Prague.

Prague Old Town Square

The Old Town is among the oldest and by far, the most beautiful district in the Czech Capital of Prague. The core of the historical center is Old Town Square, which started as a marketplace in the 10th century and has been the site for many political and cultural events that have shaped the history of Prague. The ancient lanes of cobblestone form a mysterious maze in which even the most orientated is bound to get lost.

Prague old town was so much like a fairy tale town. The buildings was preserved and so pretty.

We walked around the square until it got dark at 5pm and had dinner at a Thai restaurant near the square. Thai restaurants become our to go Restaurant throughout our trip as Alyssa always craved for rice and both Sari and I loved thai food.
