Travelling to the Czech Republic on a budget? Here’s how I had the time of my life in Prague with my mum, sister and only 400 squid between us! Side note: I also wanted to give a massive welcome to my new followers, I see you! Don’t forget to connect with me on my socials!
Here are the things I paid for in advance:
- Ryanair Flight: £135 return for 3 people
- Airbnb: £75 for one night (city centre)
- National Express Coach Ticket: £16 return for 3
When we landed in Prague, our Uber from the airport to our AirBnB cost 400CZK (£14) and took about 40 minutes. Because we arrived a few hours before check in (and because Ryanair didn’t give us so much as a drop of water on the flight), we decided to eat breakfast somewhere local. We ended up at the Globe Cafe, which was a stones throw away from our apartment and we weren’t left wanting! Three of us had full meals and a drink each for 650CZK (£22)!
Soon after we checked into our AirBnB, my mum crashed. Crystal and I decided to go for a walk along the Vltau River, which of course was free! We did get a cheeky ice cream each, though, which cost 70CZK (£2.46) in total.
We went back to our AirBnB to wake my mum up and get ready for dinner. As usual, we chose a cheap eat on Trip Advisor and ended up at a quaint family-run Italian restaurant named Amuni. The food was as delicious as it was authentic. We had three main meals, three drinks, and two desserts for 1235CZK (43.32). Flipping steal.
Our Uber there and back cost 170CZK (£5.97)!
Day 2’s breakfast also came recommended on Trip Advisor Breakfast. The three of us ate at Just!Bagel for a total of 325CZK (£11.40). The wait was exceptionally long but the food was worth it, filling us up till late afternoon.
Next, we walked along the river up to St Charles’ Bridge and bought tickets for a boat ride up the river, costing us 1050CZK (£36.83) altogether. My mum’s not a small girl anymore so we needed to get another Uber to the St. Vitus Cathedral and Prague Castle, which share the same grounds and are free to enter. Our Uber cost 93CZK (£3.26).
Because we were travelling back with Ryanair that evening, we forced ourselves to eat a late lunch/early dinner beside the cathedral (Lord knows Ryanair wouldn’t provide any sort of refreshment). We each had hotdogs and Crystal and I had beers for 450CZK (15.78) altogether. My mum also managed to sneak in a 50CZK ice cream (£1.75) before heading back to the airport in, you guessed it, another Uber. Our final one costing us 612CZK (21.47) because of the time of day, I’m guessing…
Have you guys ever ventured to Prague? What must-do experiences have I missed that you would recommend?
