Prague, Czech Republic

We've arrived to Prague on the evening of December 25th and went for a walk to the city center. We took with us only 1100 CZK, which we got when we sold 50 EUR in Dusseldorf airport. The ride from airport to our hotel cost us 64 CZK for two (two 90 minutes tickets). When we were using public transport inside city we usually bought 30 minutes tickets for 24 CZK each.
In the center there was still a Christmas market. In Germany they are already closed :) We bought a sausage, crepe and some tee for about 160 CZK. Cheaper than in Germany, but still expensive.

Later we went for dinner in the place nearby - restaurant Kotleta. We ordered Gulyash with Knedliks. It tastes better than it looks :)

The next morning...

In the morning after breakfast in the hotel we went for a walk. Started from Letensky Sadi park. A lot of open spaces, but it's only interesting with it's view on the old town.

Bridges over Vltava river.

In the park there were shoes hanging from the wires. We only had single pair of shoes each, so we decided no to throw our shoes there :)

In Prague (and all over the Europe) was very warm weather for this time. The flowers started to bloom and bees woke up. They don’t know yet that it would be -2 in two weeks.

We wanted to visit Royal Gardens, but it was closed over the winter.

The streets are so narrow, that they had to install a traffic light!
Actually, it’s just a trick luring people into the restaurant downstairs.
