Prague – 4 Days
Prague is one of the World’s most beautiful romantic cities totally enchanting as charming now as it was centuries ago. History comes alive around the Old Town Square and in the restored elegance of Mala Stranas (Lesser Town) with tranquil narrow streets, squares and arcaded buildings where Mozart and Kafka once wandered. The historic centre is UNESCO Heritage site, there are so many places to visit such as Prague castle which looks down upon the stunning panorama of the city. Worth visiting is the Strahov monastery with remarkable library is a must and you will be rewarded with an amazing view of the city. Other points of interest are St Vitus cathedral, the Royal Palace and picturesque Golden Lane with it’s tiny houses. The Royal Way takes you down to the city, directly to the Charles Bridge, built in the 14th century continuously busy with street artists, musicians, puppeteers and pedestrians during the day and is very romantic and quiet at night.
The Old Town Square is where you can enjoy the parade of apostles at the Astronomical Clock thinking of how it is possible that such an old mechanism can still be working. A few steps apart there is a former Jewish quarter with its synagogues, the Golem Story and the mysterious old cemetery or the art-nouveau-style Municipal House and the modern-centre Wenceslas square.
Why not try a traditional Czech pastry called Kolach, made from a brioche-like yeasted dough, has a filling of sweet poppy seed paste with an almond powder sprinkled over the top. This amongt many other pastries and sweets can be sampled at the cosy Artisan Café & Bistrot (Vejvodova 1) a side street from the old city near the astronomical clock.
