Prague

 

We arrived into Prague and stepped off the bus into light, floating snow – it was so beautiful just to watch the snow fall. It wasn’t heavy enough to stay on the ground but it was a beautiful first sight!  We made Prague a mixture of relaxing and sightseeing – our first adventure was taking the tram to Wenceslas Square to explore the Christmas markets. We also found our way to Tesco to do a big food shop for Christmas!

Our first full day in Prague was rainy and cold – we took the excellent tram system up to Prague castle and explored the stunning St Vitus cathedral, the old Royal Palace (including the window where people were defenestrated), the Basilica of St George and Golden Lane.  The castle was excellent but would have perhaps been more enjoyable in dry, warm conditions!

On our last day in Prague, we enjoyed much nicer weather! We climbed back up to the top of the castle to enjoy a clear view, and then went to see the beautiful St Nicholas church. Then we (like all the other tourists) walked across Charles Bridge, a famous and very beautiful pedestrian bridge across the river. Our path lead us back to the Old Town Square to finish.

    I love the cold and snow, but I can see how it wouldn’t be that great for sightseeing!
