A short holiday in Prague


I've always wanted to go to Eastern Europe for a holiday and  so took the opportunity to hop over to Prague from Aberdeen.  Prague, the capital of Czech Republic is the fourteenth largest city in the European Union having a population of just over a million and covers 500 sq km at its outer limits. We stayed in the old town of Prague at the Charles Bridge Premium Apartment which was one of  the best apartments that I've stayed so far.  We spent 3 nights in Prague and paid 515 euro for our stay in this apartment.






Oh, back to the first picture of this post ...... The Old Town Astronomical Clock which was acquired at the beginning of the15th Century, rebuilt by a master clockmaker named Hanus.  On the top of it is the Old Town Hall Tower.  On the left is the Gothic Door, main entrance to the Town Hall and Tower, carved by Matthias Rejsek.




Our first meal and taste of Czech food @ the U Dvou Sester  restaurant which was within walking distance from the apartment.  What we had ......  Pork ribs, a soup, Pork knuckle, not in the picture is a Lasagne. Cost - 1067 Czech Koruna excluding service charge.


Market selling all sorts of knick-knacks, souvenirs, fruits, etc.
