Welcome to Prague

May 14, 2014

We had a glorious time in Prague. The food was cheap, the beer was cheaper, the company amazing and the weather…unpredictable.

I loved it. The architecture is gorgeous and I snapped some amazing views from the top of castles and towers and things. We had some amazing food and I drank far too much wine for my own good (like that’s ever stopped me).

OK, so we all know that I could ramble on about our trip to this gorgeous city for hours but I heard that a picture speaks a thousand words so I thought I’d just show you instead.

Unfortunately I forgot that I’m as trigger-happy with a camera as I am with a keyboard. Oops!

Grab a cup of tea, a KitKat and prepare yourself.

This is a very pic-heavy post!

This was our first meal in Prague. Gary went to this restaurant last time he was visiting and has not stopped talking about their beef stroganoff since he got back. We ordered beef goulash with sour cream and home-made dumplings (delicious!), wine for me and beer for him.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when the entire bill came to only £8.50! Food and drink in Prague is super cheap, especially if you go off the beaten tourist track.

The Astronomical clock in the Old Town square is a must-see. We climbed to the top for about £5 and the views are superb!

These guys were playing old-school jazz on the Charles bridge. Brilliant!

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this but I love zoos. I made my sister take me to Dublin zoo when we visited, so it only seemed fair to make Gary come with me to the one in Prague! (not that he complained)

I also really wanted to go on one of the river-boats, so when we heard you could get TO the Zoo IN a river-boat…well. That pretty much decided it.

After a lovely quiet boat journey back, we headed on down to a bar by the river for cocktails and gorgeous views before getting massively involved with the best Thai curry I think I’ve ever eaten at Lemon Leaf.

I totally recommend it if you’re ever in Prague!
