I'm posting this kind of in a rush because 1) it's been ages since we were actually in Prague and 2) the weather's been so nice recently I don't want to put pictures of us in coats on our blog when it's proper hot... So here it is!! We stayed at the Mark Luxury Hotel in Prague and really really loved it. The concierge was helpful in suggesting places for us to go and the hotel itself was just beautiful.
We want to share some of the places we loved and consider a "must" if you ever visit Prague yourself. I think these are all pretty well known places in and around Prague so you will most definitely be able to get some more information online on these places. The first place I'd like to mention is the Old Town Square. Of course there's the Old Town Hall as well as the Gothic Tyn Cathedral, St. Nicholas Church, Kinsky Palace, and the Astronomical Clock. Our visit was timed during Easter weekend so the Town Square had loads of stalls selling decorative eggs, souvenirs and food. I've also added some pictures we took near Powder Tower here.
We also walked across the Charles Bridge with the amazing statues, musicians and artists and picked up a few drawings as souvenirs. Once we walked across the bridge, we followed a group of people who eventually led us to the John Lennon Wall.
We also took the train to Kutná Hora to have a wander around the town as well as to visit the Sedlec Ossuary. This Catholic chapel contains skeletons that are rearranged to decorate around the chapel as chandeliers and whatnot. To tell you the truth, it was a lot creepier than I imagined but beautiful nonetheless.
I think the most amazing view that we saw in Prague was definitely from the Prague Castle. This was also the place we spent the most time just because of its sheer size. Some sites we loved were the Old Royal Palace, Golden Lane and St.Vitus Cathedral.
Of course this wouldn't be a full post on Prague if I didn't write about the restaurants and the food we loved, right? I'd definitely recommend trdelnik (hopefully that's how they're spelled). It's this sweet pastry type thing that has sugar and walnuts on top and it's just amazing! If you google it, someone would've described it better but that's the best I could do. Restaurants that we loved were all part of the Ambiente group in Prague including Pasta Fresca, Brasileiro and Pizza Nuova. I think you can guess what Pasta Fresca and Pizza Nuova served but Brasileiro was basically this buffet that served loads of different dishes including sushi, fish, meat, salads and more. These restaurants were my top threes during our visit.
