Snigdha is an avid traveler, an amateur photographer and a travel blogger based in Mumbai. Travel is such a passion for her that despite a full time job and loans to pay, she is predominantly found on the road with her camera and a backpack.
While she loves all kinds of travels, visiting rural & eco destinations and experimenting with local activities are her favourites. She also beleives that there is a lot more to any destinations than just its touristy sights, and that the local people, the hidden trails, local food and culture should be the criteria to judge a place.
Her travel philosophy is – always travel budget, yet be comfortable and there is no place that cannot be visited because it’s too expensive. She has personally lived by this motto and managed to travel extensively within India and 15 other countries across Asia, Europe and the Middle East!
Apart from the actual travel, she loves travel planning and helping like minded fellow travelers with their itineraries and travel plans.

Top 5 Free Things to Do in Prague
Prague is one of those beautiful cities that has no dearth in terms of options of things to see, do, experience, etc. Though not cheap as rest of Eastern Europe, it still has numerous sights and things that a budget traveler can easily do / enjoy for free. And based on my visit here, my top 5 picks of free things to do in Prague are as follows -
Visit the Charles Bridge
This is one of the most visited sights in Prague and connects the Old City to the Mala Strana. There are 2 towers at the 2 ends of the Bridge and 30 beautiful baroque statues placed along either side (many of them are copies and the originals can be seen in the Lapidarium).The most popular statue is the one of St. John of Nepomuk, a Czech martyr saint who was executed during the reign of Wenceslas IV by being thrown into the Vltava from the bridge. Touching the statue is supposed to bring good luck and ensures your return to Prague. You should visit this Bridge as early as possible, preferably by 7am as post that is starts getting so crowded (with small roadside stalls, shows and tourist) that you are barely able to see anything and just don’t feel the beauty of this Bridge.
