Prague Castle Gardens & Jazz Boat | Prague Day 3

Caught up with Day 1 & Day 2?



Following our Beer & Tapas tour, our very informative guide had suggested we go back up the Prague Castle and see what the inside has to offer. This as the first time we visited we only went as far as the viewing point. To our surprise is was free to enter but of course there are certain extras if you wish to pay for them.





Approaching through a different entrance to the first time we came, we strolled through the Royal Gardens, with owls there posing for pictures and with the offer of having a picture with one yourself on your arm. Unfortunately we didn't have any cash for that, but we couldn't help but admire them anyway.


Now in the castle complex, which is the largest in the world and covers the area of around 10 football pitches, we wandered through and admired its beauty. St Vitus Cathedral, standing tall in the centre is so grand and beautiful, and the rest is almost like a village or even small town of it's own. The views reaching out to all ends of the city are amazing, and all in all it was a greatly relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon.


Following the castle, we walked over to the cruise docks, as we would be going on tonight's Jazz Boat.* They see it as a three sense project - listen, taste and see. The Jazz Boat runs daily at 8.30pm, with three different live performances throughout the two hour and a half ride. There are various food and drink options, and although we could see most people tucking into a delicious three course meal, having eaten shortly before hand, we chose nachos and olives from the snacks menu. This went down extremely well with the bottle of rose wine we ordered, and lasted us the entire trip.



Being the time it was, we were able to relax watching the sunset over the stunningly beautiful Prague,  listening to at times soothing, and at others groovy music! This evening was exactly what we needed after a week of full days of travelling and sightseeing. It was the perfect way to unwind and take the time to step back and appreciate Prague for everything it is. 


Crossing under the Charles Bridge, looking at the castle from afar, and going through the canal gates were probably the highlights, but overall the relaxing vibe and great wine made the evening pretty special. 


Thank you so much to Prague Jazz Boat for having us along. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would recommend it to anyone!
