The 2015 Blog catch-up continues in Prague the capital of the Czech Republic visited in May. What a city it is!! It feels very historic walking in the busy pebbled streets with trams going backwards and forwards among the old buildings. To much to see and do in 3 days, could of done with more time and right up there with Hamburg during Christmas as my favorite place visited. Here are the first 5 things I remember that first come into my mind.
1. Boat trip on the Vlata River
Somehow we found ourselves on a little boat with just 3 other people instead of one of the big bus boats, and it took a detour down a canal.
Since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs. Also used by students to protest against communism, every time the communist government painted over it the pictures would come back.
3. Parade on the Charles Bridge
After walking out of a shop we went in to buy postcards and chocolates for home we suddenly became apart of a parade about to cross the Charles Bridge. No idea what it was about but we walked across with them.
4. Model railway restaurant, drinks delivered by train!!
5. Great views from the Petrin Tower in a park above the city which was also next to a mirror maze.
