Anti-tourist guide of Prague Escape with Nelson Mochilero Train to Prague A lot of traveler’s walk by it and doesn’t notice it, but
Prague’s train is the first interesting attractive to visit This one hides on the second floor the ancient and
historical entrance to the 1871 station known as Franz Joseph the Art Noveau that decorates the hall
was added between 1972 and 1979 in this place you can also visit the
legendary Fantova Kavarna or Fanta’s Coffee. From here, you can take trains to lots of Europe destinies,
like buses that go straight to the airport. Behind me there is the historical part of this
building, and exiting from it you can take the airport-express which is a bus that
takes us straight to the airport. And here it is the historic tram of Prague. Prague’s train.
Hradcanská’s station. We’re in Prague walking on the streets that are
not so popular. Let’s go on the back side of the castle on these little streets, these little parks and
know a little bit the back side of Prague. Now we are on the gardens
of the palace, today as usual I have the luck to find moments
where everything is empty. Let’s start on the ___ station, to give it
an anti-touristic look to the neighborhoods and parks without any makeup on them; a couple blocks away from
it we can get to the royal garden Kralovska Zahrada we go through security control and here we find the Belvedere palace, also known as the summer house of Queen Anna. The best thing is that without even noticing it
we are in the heights with a splendid view of Prague. In this place you have two alternatives: to go to the
gardens which are totally recommended or to go to the castle. I’m going to tell you travelers, a secret;
whilst everyone goes here, inside the Prague Castle an alternative is to go this way that
takes us to the picnic gardens, as you can see there are not so many people and it’s
really wonderful. Isn’t this place photogenic? This place is really way to quiet, way to relaxing, very pretty
and really is just a few steps away from the castle who would’ve thought that just a few
steps from here there are so many tourists. Look how beautiful this corner we have found, is
really without any tourists and look where we are we are way too close of the castle, Prague’s Cathedral,
there is completely full with tourists whilst these gardens are completely empty and we can come to have a picnic,
to rest for a while and to keep knowing Prague. We’re still in the picnic gardens. This place has been an amazing discovery and
I’m sure that every time I come I’ll visit this place because it is a breath of fresh air;
it’s really like a break to find a place like this. Well from here you can have a
better idea of where we are located. This is the entrance and
here continuous the road and we’re leaving from these deepen gardens to combine,
to immerse with the multitude to go inside Prague’s castle. Prague’s Castle Surrounds. Prague Castle:
With 570 meters long and 138 wide in average it is considered the largest
ancient castle in the world. The Castle. Let’s go now and take a
walk to someplace else. Exiting here go straight, crossing where those luxury
cars are, we’ll go to Our Lady of Loreto after going up a few steps, a few meters away from the
castle and from the Cathedral Our Lady of Loreto Formerly, since medieval times, this was a
pilgrimage place, the 27 bells of different sizes cover 2 and a half octaves,
with which it can be played any song. This place has a model that comes from the Loreto
Sanctuary in Italy, and it holds valuable treasures of sacro art among those, a custody
of 6.000 diamonds on its decoration. And now we are in Strahovskeho
(Ok, I said it wrong, it’s Strahovskeho) Heads up of public services 🙂 In Prague there are several
restrooms that costs 10 crowns so do not despair, you don’t have to
necessary go to a café or to a restaurant. Heads up of public services 🙂 We go through these medieval streets,
ancients, beautiful very epic and glorious
towards the viewpoint. Visiting Prague requires being prepared to walk a
lot of ups and downs (ups and downs) these streets were forged in ancient towns,
ancient mountains, places with castles cathedrals, churches, all of this is fascinating. We came walking here, surrounded by walls
going up to find the best view of Prague or at least that’s what they say, one of the bests, from
where you can appreciate the great Charles Bridge. Let’s take a brief look to the
Petrin viewpoint to see where we are and where are we going;
and we continue with our trip. Here on Czech Republic the people feel very proud
of this place, let’s say that it’s like a little Eiffel Tower. Petrin viewpoint. Photo taken from the heights. Those are some of the religious buildings
that we have around, like this little Disneyland. You can go up and down on a funicular. We found a spot with a great view. Where are we? Going down exactly
on the road that goes up or down to Petrin. Descent from the Petrin viewpoint. What could this be? it says Magical grotto. And on this side a little grave. It’s very interesting to explore Prague, because
sometimes you find yourself locked inside a castle. If I go down this way apparently there’s
nothing and if I go up there’s nothing. So, what is this all about? Let’s see. There is the Dancing House. Dancing House:
Also called “Fred and Ginger” on behalf to the dancers with the same name and because of the
architectural feeling that the design evokes. Crossroads what we find, luckily
we have our friend Google Earth. This is the part that you wouldn’t expect from Prague
because people come to see the Powder Tower Charles Bridge, the museums, the cathedrals, but
for me to walk around in all of these gardens and secret corners really reveals a lot of Prague’s
heart and that is, if you ask any praguense definitely what they like the most. And we’ve arrived to the civilization. To walk under the bridge; why not?
It has been used to the making of several movies,
among those the popular Eurotrip. On the year of 2002 there was an inundation
here, that inundation reached this height; I’ll zoom in so you can watch; up there the
water reached in the 2002 inundations. Here there are other inundations that have
been registered so you can see the height. This is me and the water level is up there. Impressive. The people and
the cars were floating. The place is not that far away from
the John Lennon Wall What I just showed you about the inundations
is here and going to the right we can see this little canal; and now we’re heading
to the famous John Lennon Wall. We’re arriving to the John Lennon Wall,
but let’s establish something the truth is that John Lennon was never here, he never
played here, and he never put a foot in this place So why is this called the John Lennon Wall?
Because it represents a lot of the values that he expressed on his lyrics, on his songs,
on his philosophy, and a lot of people during the time of communism,
took it as a reference point to express themselves
through graffiti on this place. Knights of Malta Church On this place we are going to see something
very important, even more important that the John Lennon Wall, and it is
exactly behind the Wall and it is the rests of an ancient Templar church
of the order of Malta. Here we can see what anciently was a Gothic
Church; but now is completely reconstructed it might look like a backyard, like a garden but
actually that had a great dome, here we can see Malta’s cross, like on this side, and those ancient
walls are an evidence of this historical register. Child of Prague’s Church is a one of the most beloved
churches by the Latin community here on Prague. We can see a faithful and devoted congregation
attending to a mass which is now given in Spanish. Here there are several presents and souvenirs
from Venezuela, Czech Republic, Italy El Salvador, Malta, Peru; families from
all around the world donate to this church. I don’t know if I’m authorized or unauthorized
but we have entered to a place where are kept all of the clothing of the Child of Prague. Here
you can see the decorations; all of them come from different countries and have been donated
from different families. And to finish, these ones. Child of Prague:
Advocation also known as Santo Niño de Atocha (Spain and Latin America) Santo niño de Cebú (Philippines), Santo Bambino
de Aracoeli (Rome) el Niñopan (Mexico) the Divino Niño Huerfanito de Pamplona (Colombia), the Santo Niño
Jesús de los Afligidos (San Cristóbal de la Laguna, Tenerife) the Divino Niño de Colombia and the Niño Jesús de Escuque, Escuque
(Trujillo, Venezuela) and the Niño Dios de Satoquí (Chile), among others. Now we are in Zizkov, Zizkov is a
very traditional neighborhood on Prague where you can find this emblematic tower
that has the babies of David Cerny one of the most popular sculptors
here on Prague; why? Because his work decorates
almost the entire city. Up there we can see some of the babies of
Cerny climbing the Tower of Zizkov. Bunkers on Prague. People say that this is one of the
best places in Prague to eat Klobasa it’s right at the end of the plaza. Downtown by night. We got here late, but we got here. Charle’s Bridge. A lot of times I have wondered what is like to walk
on the Charle’s Bridge at night; well, is like this. Thank you for coming here with me. Subscribe on my channel for more travel advice. 🙂
