I remember getting there wet because of the rain and because we’d decided to take public transport which cost less than £1 (can you believe it) per person, going on the bus, train, and tram, as opposed to the airport shuttle which would’ve cost about £20 pp.
As you know I like telling stories through pictures so here goes!
One of the main stations we had to pass on the way to the city where our hotel was located
Barely a minute from the hotel there was a cosy little restaurant serving traditional Czech food
There was an accordion-ist playing
And lots of noisy men!
Traditional roast leg of duck with dumplings (those things that look like bread) and cabbage (kinda like watery sauerkraut, tastes amazing)
My favourite thing from the daily buffet breakfast
PERFECT scrambled eggs with tomato sauce
Saw this old man admiring the flowers on the way out
You could rent these things to take you around the city
This was at the popular Charles Bridge
Basically a bridge full of funny statues and people selling souvenirs, as well as street performers
I thought these drawings were really good!
Mr Bean looks spot on!
Saw this little thing on the way there
Getting to this castle was so tiring btw when you don’t have a proper map and hardly anyone speaks english (bad luck, i dont know)
Poppies by the tram tracks
There was a little bird exhibit going on at the castle grounds
This ‘castle’ is actually sort of like a big area with lots of buildings within it such as an art gallery, old dungeon, tower, church, it’s like a little village
Looking normal Haha
Prague-ian (:p) guards marching
Part of the castle grounds
I’v excluded photos I’ve taken of the dungeons and museums and stuff cos they’re boring
There was a little fountain somewhere here
Threw a coin in and made a wish
I dont normally remember wishes I make at fountains, wells, bridges etc
But this one I clearly remember and I truly hope I get my wish
Little lane full of little shops
Me at a christmas shop!
Not real laundry – these are props for a stage show going on that night
Told you this castle was weird
Amazing views though
Have been wearing this shirt way too often
But I don’t care
Later that night we watched a Vivaldi concert at a church
Thank goodness for dinner later which was soo good
Duck and cabbage again
Altogether had a exhausting but great first day
We decided that the best thing about Prague is the (cheap) food
There’s something really so satisfying about being treated to a good hotel (instead of a budget hotel)
Sleep that night was Aaaaaaaaaah
Hotel sheets always feel extra clean!
