Exploring My Favorite Places While Studying Abroad in Prague

Exploring Prague Favorites: A Personal Study Abroad Tour 

Welcome to my Prague study abroad adventure! In this vibrant city, there are places that became my favorite to visit. Through this photoset, I'm thrilled to introduce you to these beloved spots—each one either gave me comfort, joy, or inspiration. 

I found these places by either walking around Prague or by recommendations from friends. Either way, I keep going back and recommending them to others because I’m sure they’ll love them. These places offer a mix of food, stationery, books, picture locations, etc. And now, I'm excited to share these treasures with you. 

What I Captured 

As a fellow study abroad student, I understand the importance of finding your place in a new city, of carving out spaces where you feel at home while you’re studying abroad. That's why I curated this photoset—to serve as your guide to the hidden sanctuaries of Prague, where you can relax, recharge, and find inspiration. 

Prague Stores 

Andělská Apatyka Serafin Praha 

This is an herb store called Andělská Apatyka Serafin Praha! This is a magical shop near my flat that has essential oils, herbs, soaps, tea, etc. I went in to find a lavender spray and came out with products I didn’t initially think I’d find in Prague. The store owner is a very lovely person. Check it out at: Šafaříkova 368/16, 120 00 Vinohrady.

Genesis Second Hand 

Do you love thrifting as much as I do? Genesis Second Hand has all the clothing you’ve ever dreamed of for less than $4 a piece. I bought two trench coats for $3.75 – the owners are very kind and will help you find clothing pieces that will make you feel beautiful and confident. They have multiple locations around Prague but the one in Prague 2 is: Bělehradská 12/98, 120 00 Praha 2-Vinohrady.

I.P. Pavlova 

Since arriving in Prague, I began treating myself to flowers because I deserve them! This flower stand at I.P. Pavlova is affordable and has a variety of different flowers. I bought tulips and they lasted so long. If you're near this area, treat yourself to some beautiful flowers.

I love finding new stationery and doodling in my journal. It’s a hobby I intend to keep pursuing after Prague. I’m so grateful that McPen is a place here because it has every single stationery item I ever dreamed of; it’s slightly dangerous because I spend too much money there!

Budget Books 

I’m a bookworm and I had to continue reading in Prague. There are so many cute bookstores in the city, but Budget Books are by far the most affordable options I’ve found. They have English and Czech books. Budget Books has many locations in Prague, but this specific one is in Spálená 82/4, 110 00 Nové Město.

Prague Treats 


Boba is my go-to drink! Like many of these places, there are many boba stores but in my opinion this Chatime has the best taste of tea. They have a wide menu of drinks. If you want recommendations try the Matcha Milk Tea with tapioca. Here’s the address to get some: Jindřišská 873/27, 110 00 Nové Město.

At University of New York in Prague (UNYP), there’s a cozy café called OPUS where they serve students paninis, salads, parfaits, desserts, baked goods, etc., at a reasonable price. The thing I enjoy most is the outside sitting area. There are many chairs and tables, and its surroundings are filled with plants and vines. It’s a perfect spot to get some work done.

La Donuteria 

I’ve never tried a more tasteful and delicate donut than in La Donuteria. The store owner mentioned he makes them fresh every day at 5 a.m. and this completely makes sense because of the taste, the softness of the dough, and the details. These donuts will be one of the things I miss the most about Prague, grab one at: Spálená 23, 110 00 Nové Město.

Mi Tierra 

Mi Tierra is my local supermarket that feels like home. They have a variety of Spanish and Hispanic food products that allow me to make my favorite dishes here. The store owner is a lovely Afro-Latina person who is super welcoming to the store. They offer Czech language classes, salsa dancing classes, and even cooked food on certain occasions. Check them out at: Na Přikopě 853/12 (shopping center Černa Růže 2NP 2nd Floor, Staré Město, 110 00 Praha.
