Beautiful destinations. Scenery central. Kaptain Kenny is going places.
Is the Prague Castle Worth the Hike?
“Ahoj” and welcome to the first in a 4 part series of posts on Prague – the most ‘central’ part of Europe. (I actually found out from a few Czech friends that they dislike being referred to as Eastern Europe. So when you refer to Prague, make sure you reference their centrality!)
First things first. This website’s name is obviously Kaptain Kenny and the branding relates to all things ‘captain’ and ‘pirates’. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the Czech word for hello is ‘ahoj’ pronounced ‘ahoy’ as the old pirates once did. If that doesn’t scream ‘Kaptain-Kenny-is-supposed-to-be-in-Prague’, I don’t know what does!
I began my Prague journey by signing up for two walking tours. The company ‘Discover Prague Tours’ is a winner. You’ll be the luckiest tourist in Prague if you get Givi, he’s a Georgian/Czech guy with the most hilarious sense of humour and style of telling stories. Thanks Givi 🙂
The first walking tour started at the old town square and you just have to find the tour guides with yellow umbrellas and shirts. The tour went for around 2.5 hours and was essentially free except for tip I gave Givi. I was so ecstatic that as soon as this one finished, I signed up for the next tour which was for the Prague Castle. It wasn’t expensive – around 300 Czech Korunas which is around 10 euros.
I’m so glad I went! Besides getting a little sunburnt, the trip was fabulous. I met lots of interesting people on the tour and got to take some stunning photos of the Prague Castle. I found out that the Prague Castle is an actual suburb or district of Prague, like a little town in itself.

As usual, I’ll let the photos tell the story. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to get in touch. I love hearing from you all!
