Weekend in Prague


What a beautiful place to be!
We have just came back from Prague, the most beautiful place on this planet. The weather was not too good, but the charm of Prague make up to that.
We stayed not far from the centre of the city, in Arpacay hostel (near Angel station). The hostel was clean, breakfast was good and stuff was friendly.
On the first day, we arrived at 13:00 to Prague, went to the hostel to check in. Following that, we took a metro to the centre to have a good dinner in our favourite restaurant.
The day after, we went to see some old synagogues and Jewish places (where they charge you for "air" you breath) and then for a nice walk along the Vltava and old Vysehrad castle. We finished that do by doing small shopping, some beer and a movie (Sunshine).
Our last day in Prague was dedicated to shopping. After a quick breakfast and tour to Staropramen brewery (it was closed), we went to a Ziclin shopping mall.

Hey guys! It looks like you guys had a lovely time there. It's been nearly 3 years since I was in Prague. I'm looking forward to checking it out again soon with Anna. BTW, what did you think of the movie Sunshine? I thought it was beautifully made but plotwise the story was a bit empty. Anway all the best!!!

...sometimes Prague looks like Riga...however,the scenery around the main river is different - it is more 'green' :-)and some other sites make Prague different too - such an impression... I especially like the photo with giraffes and the ones showing you having lunch in the hotel :-)

I'll have to visit sometime before it becomes too expensive to go. You guys are making me incredibly jealous. I see you are loving the camera and the pictures are beautiful.
