Prague

Just back from a great trip to Prague May 2015



We stayed at http://www.parkinn.com/hotel-prague

Highly recommended, we upgraded to an executive room that had a lovely balcony over looking the city. This was the view from the room


Arrived back after our first days exploring to find a bottle of complimentary fizz in our room to celebrate our anniversary


The hotel is about a 20 min walk from the centre along the river.  Some nice little bars along the way


We came across some fantastic street art


Great band on Charles Bridge



On our second morning we walked down onto the river and there was a lovely farmers market selling fresh veg, cider, fish, flowers and lots more.




This band were entertaining everyone


After the market we walked up to http://www.praha-vysehrad.cz/lang/l2

A gorgeous church up on the hill surrounded by lovely gardens


On the way back down we had lunch in a lovely garden terrace http://www.usemika.cz/en/restaurant/about-the-restaurant/


On our last day we walked down the other side of the river towards Prague castle


We passed some lovely buildings



We found a lovely walk up through a park round to the castle



You need a good day to explore the castle so we are going to go back next time. We went up the clock tower 289 steps and a great view

We were lucky enough to see the changing of the guards


We had a birds eye view from the top of the tower


On the Saturday night we attended the Speedway GP @ the Marketa Stadium 



Great Britain's Tai Woffinden won we had a great night

We had some lovely food while we were in Prague - but this restaurant was first class so we went there twice http://www.ukroka.cz/ was only a 5 min walk from our hotel.  The food and service was some of the best we have ever had





All in all we had a fantastic time and we look forward to visiting Prague again soon

 Until the next time
