Prague Photo Diary • Day Two
Day one in Prague consisted of a morning walk along the Vltava river, an exploration of Old Town Square, good grub at Hard Rock, a peek at The Infinity of Knowledge, a huge trek up Vitkov hill and finally, a winning sunset.
Day two of our travels in Prague was a lot more chilled out. Although a lot of walking was to be done again, a long lie in compensated for that. Unfortunately, the weather this day was not quite as good, though this didn’t stop us…
So, it just so happened that this day was PANCAKE DAY! After searching for ages for the best pancakes in Prague, we came across the beauty that is the Den Noc bistro. If you are in Prague, I urge you to visit here, they make the best pancakes imaginable and the 5 star Trip Advisor reviews reflect that. While Gaz had a bacon, cheese and green onion pancake, I opted for a classic bacon and maple syrup combo.
Next on our list was one of the things we were most looking forward to – Prague Castle, of course! Despite the weather being overcast, the views were still indescribable. The orange rooftops give the little city so much character. We had a great time walking round and exploring the various churches, basilicas, palaces and other buildings. It felt like you were in a fairy-tale world.
Following on from the castle, we headed towards Kampa Island where we saw a lovely and humble little love-lock bridge. Too gutted at the thought that we didn’t have a lock (let downs, we know) we didn’t spend too long here but I loved reading people’s messages and comments on the locks – very special!
Just tucked round the corner from the bridge was the John Lennon Wall. This was one of my favourite little gems in Prague. Some wicked graffiti is pasted all over the wall including many political song lyrics and quotes from The Beatles. Awesome stuff.
After this we finally took a stroll down the iconic Charles Bridge. It was a magical walk, and this is considering that it was a relatively dull day in February where it was not as jam packed full with street performers, artists and tourists, etc. It is an extraordinary bridge with the most amazing architecture. Again, our adventures continued into the night but I have no photos to support that. So there we have it… the end of my Prague diary, eee! I cannot wait to show you around the hostel and Berlin.
So, have you ever visited Prague? What did you think of the castle? Let me know in the comments below!
