Adi Hadzic

"Adi was so much fun! Without him, I would have missed out on a lot of cool experiences. The tour was the perfect balance of history and activity so there was always never a dull moment." Lexi, Feb 2015

Ahoj from Prague! My name is Adi, and I'm so excited to join WSA this year! Since moving here for university in 2011, I've found that there are so many hidden treasurers here that true globetrotters would be thrilled to see. Come join me for an exciting weekend in Prague and see why it beat London as the 2nd most-visited destination in the WORLD in 2014!

PRAGUE 3 Days, 2 Nights

Day 0 - Thursday: Optional Early Arrival

If you've got the time, arrive a day early so you can explore and get your barings a bit on this beautiful city. You'll have time to check out some beautiful parks and other neighborhoods that we won't cover as a group. The hostel puts on nightly pub crawls for you to enjoy!

 

Day 1 - Friday: Prague's Old Town

The adventure officially begins 10am Friday morning when your local guide will pick you up and break down the itinerary. On your first day in town, you'll exploring the old Medieval heart of Prague, the Old Town. On this three hour orientational walking tour, you'll see the Old Town Square, climb the famous Clocktower and take in the massive Wenceslas Square where the Velvet Revolution began to break the Czechs away from Communism. The Old City is jam-packed with striking Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic architecture, making you feel as if you jumped straight into a fairytale novel, and you'll have lunch in a traditional Czech restaurant.

We'll continue into the Jewish Quarter of Prague, to see the Pinkas Synagogue and to peer into the Jewish cemetery where over 200,000 people are buried. That afternoon, you'll enjoy the good weather with paddle boating on the Vlatava. Don’t forget to BYO snacks & beverages! Meet up with the WSA group back at the hostel for an evening of ghost stories, and a night out including Prague’s most unique cellar bars & pubs. In the clubbing mood? Prague boasts a famous 5-floor club!


Day 2 - Saturday: Lesser Quarter & Prague Castle

At 10:30am, the group will strike out for Prague's quaint Lesser Quarter located in the shadow of the Prague Castle. In this district, you'll take a few hours to tag the Lennon Wall , cross the Lover's Bridge, see the Infant Jesus Church of Prague, and have a laugh at the Pissing Statues.

Climb up the hill to the Castle where your guide will break down the history of Europe's longest ancient castle while looking out over the city of Prague. You'll have the chance tol tour the castle where you may just catch the change of the guard. Kick back and enjoy a pint at the Strahov Monastery, a historic monastery that brews their own delicious beer! With beer cheaper than water, Prague is the perfect place for budget travelers on another night out on the town.


Day 3 - Sunday: Dekuji!

WSA keeps the itinerary open on Sundays to cater to what travelers would like to do: more museums, or perhaps you want to head south of town to climb the Vysehrad Castle.

Happy Backpackers

Everything was so organized and the tour guide was AWESOME! They had everything planned out and I got a really good feel for life in the city. We even got to cut the lines for the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh museum. It was definitely worth the money and I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun filled weekend.
