We were disappointed by Prague. By far, it was the most touristy place we’ve been. The main square was PACKED with tourists from all over the world. You couldn’t walk anywhere without bumping into someone.

We did a walking tour of the city, which was great to learn the history. Our tour guide mentioned that two of the “most disappointing touristy spots in Europe” are in Prague.

The things that draw people to Prague are kinda lame. The great astrological clock sucks. The castle isn’t a castle. The beer is cheap but not that great.

It felt like Prague was looking for its identity, and it was turning to others for inspiration, “we have beer and castles too!”

I’m sure other parts of the Czech Republic are amazing, and I want to visit more of the area, but Prague itself can easily be skipped.
