Day 2

10:00 - Kafka Museum
Probably only really interesting if you have some knowledge about Kafka and his works already and/or you understand German. But especially the second part of the exhibition is really good. Entrance is 120 CZK (4,50€) for Students and 200 CZK regularly.

13:00 - Lunch Cukrkávalimonáda > Website
Such a cute little Restaurant with a great variety of pastry and deserts as well as all kinds of salads. We got some soup (again), hot drinks and a crepe for under 15€

15:00 - Kampa Museum & Website
on our way there we quite accidentally passed the "John Lennon Wall" not really worth an extra visit if you ask me. The Museum on the other hand was absolutely amazing, with mostly exhibitions of modern czech artists! Entrance for the whole Museum is 100 CZK (3,80€) for students and 200 CZK for adults - SO worth it!

21:00 - Concert Time: Is Tropical - Support: Many Things!
Now the reason we wanted to go to Prague in the first place was this concert! We love Many Things (can check out a whole post of me rambling about it here) and when we saw that they were touring with Is Tropical we were all in!

Day 3

11:00 - Gallery Miro
the Entrance is free and we were just waiting for the Library to open, but the painting they had in there at that time were really cool!

12:00 - Strahov Monastery
Now they try to charge you for everything! You even have to pay an extra fee to take photos, It really is quite an impressive image you cant really go inside the Library anyways so all you get ist the one picture everyone gets, that you'll also find all over the internet. However if you don't want to spent too much I'd say you can skip this one.

14:00 - Spanish Synagogue
Also one of the many super-touristy things in the old Jewish quarter. We initially wated to see the old cemetery but that was almost 600 CZK so we went to the Spanish Synagogue instead which was about 150 CZK.

16:00 - Dinner at Lokal > Website

They serve lokal food there which is really tasty and great value for money in a modern ambient, plus you'll probably always get a table.

17:00 - Stationary Shopping at Papelote
This is a must for all you stationary and paper lovers out there, I could have spent days in there! Papelote is a young czech design brand with amazing ideas! you can even do workshops in their studio.

21:00 - Drinks at Bar & Books
Now there were other germans sitting right next to us and you could pay in euros, so i guess it wasn't really like a lokal's tip, but the drinks were amazing, like seriously divine. We paid under 35€ for 4 drinks and a huge club sandwich. Also it wasn't to fancy, in a way that i would make you feel uncomfortable.
