We only had two days in Prague a few months ago and wanted to squeeze in as much exploring as possible - fortunately our hotel was in the perfect central location for wandering the pretty streets of the medieval old town so we spent the weekend on our feet. We visited the 600 year old astronomical clock as it chimed, listened to the street performers in the Old Town Square, visited the baroque St. Jacob's Church, walked over the Vltava river and climbed the hill to the 9th century Prague Castle, the gothic St Vitus Cathedral and the striking Schwarzenberský Palác (all conveniently located next to each other) and admired the views across the orange rooftops, chocolate box buildings and spires, walked past the baroque statues on Charles Bridge and made a wish at the shiny St John of Nepomuk plaque.
We discovered some great restaurants and bars - we stumbled across Zdenek's Oyster Bar where we had oysters and delicious Czech white wine (who knew?), warmed up over fresh ginger and lemon tea at the elegant Café Imperial with its beautiful art nouveau glazed mosaic tiles, had lobster bisque (which seems to be served all over the city) at the early twentieth century Francouzská Restaurace in the grand old Municipal House, traditional goulash at Restaurace Mincovna, delicious salmon tartare at French restaurant Kalina, cocktails at the sophisticated Bar and Books from NYC and spent Saturday night at the huge Karlovy lázně club, with each of its five floors a different theme and genre of music. There are a few places we missed and I would have liked to have spent another day or two exploring, but we had a great time and the flights from London are cheap and quick, so we'll be back.
