Top 3 Things to do in Prague, Czech Republic


Prague, Czech Republic is a city rich with unique history, and having only really existed as it's current independently ruled country for about the last 30 years, is quite a treat to visit.  (Previously it was Czechoslovakia under Communist rule and several others in the centuries prior.) We spent several days here and loved how compact and easy it was to get around with public transportation.  It was easy to hit the highlights and do a bit extra with our time to really get a feel for the city.

Walking Tour

Since Prague structures date back to Medieval times, the streets of Old Town can be a little confusing at first glance.  A walking tour will give you a good orientation and touch on some of the many highlights such as the astronomical clock and the old Jewish quarter.  A great tour guide will also guide you through the historical changes of power throughout the city and show important locations on the path to the Czech Republic's independence. Our tour left us by the famous Charles Bridge which you could walk over to head towards Prague Castle.

Prague Castle

Prague Castle was built in the 9th century and is a beautiful sprawling complex with much to see and do.  It is the seat of the head of state and houses many artifacts important to the Czech Republic.  If you are planning to really explore it all, give yourself plenty of time as entry into the ticketed areas typically runs with normal business hours.

Letna Park

Letna Park is easily accessible by public transportation and is a popular spot for locals to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.  You can take a funicular up to the top (which we recommend) where there is a lookout tower and a mirror maze.  As you head back down, you are transported into a lush forest with many walking paths where you will see many runners, hikers and bikers.  If you continue on, you will get to beautiful lookout spots with a great perspective of the city below.

Bonus: Eat Like a Local

While there's not a ton of food that immediately comes to mind when you think "Prague" there is still certainly plenty to give a try while you're here.  The "chimney cake" is a favorite sweet and can be found at little shops all around the tourist areas.  There are also plenty of Czech cuisine restaurants around to give more traditional savory dishes a try as well.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Our Top Table Service Dining Choices at Universal CityWalk

Universal's CityWalk is a dining, shopping and entertainment area with so many options.  Where to begin?  The Kingdom Konsultant agents have been busy trying the options for you to help give you an idea of what to expect and maybe narrow some things down.  All of these restaurants are quite popular and reservations are recommended.  3. Bigfire Bigfire is going to be your more upscale/fine dining option at Universal CityWalk.  The d├ęcor is modern and features an open kitchen, the bar serves up craft cocktails and the menu features wood-fired dishes.  All of the food we tried here was delicious and the prices felt reasonable for the quality of food we tried.  If you want a nicer meal, definitely check out Bigfire (but if you show up in theme park clothes, you will be just fine too!). For more details,  click here.   2. The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar This is simply one of my favorite places to eat.  Burgers please the pickiest eaters while sushi fans will rejoice at the selection.  For

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee
