Prague. 30/12/2018

We went to Prague! It was a rather spontaneous decision before New Year’s Eve but it turned out to be such a lovely day and a romantic foodie getaway for us. Despite the rain here and there, and feeling a little sick on the bus to Prague at 5 in the morning, I had an amazing time.

Discovery

We walked a lot first thing and realised that nothing was really open yet at 8. Everything basically opened at 10 so we decided to take a walk by the river and a little around downtown whilst the streets were still serene and peaceful.

Breakfast

We went to Viet Food (Jindřišská 907/10, 110 00 Nové Město) for breakfast and shared a bowl of Phở Bò. It was such a lovely little location not far from the major shopping streets and I had to capture the atmosphere.

More discoveries

After that, we headed to find museums and galleries to look at. Most galleries already had a ridiculous amount of people standing in line for them so we walked into a book shop and a church instead.

Gallery of Arts

Eventually, we ended up at the Gallery Of Arts Prague (Staroměstské nám. 15, 110 00 Staré Město), where there were exhibitions of art pieces by Warhol, Mucha and Dalí. I already knew Warhol and a few pieces from Dalí but I didn’t know Mucha, so I was eager to see. It was so, so worth it. I’m so impressed by the art of those people and their stories and personalities. Inspiring to say the least.

Lunch, dinner, dessert

We went on to find some bites to eat. Instead of just going to a random place for lunch, G looked up some of the best cheaper places to eat in Prague and we decided to try some of them. More places to eat in Prague:

  • Pasta in Pasta Fresca (Celetná 598/11, 110 00 Staré Město)
  • Mexican cuisine in Las Adelitas (457/13 Prag 1 Praha 1 CZ 110 00, Malé nám., Staré Město)
  • Patisserie at Cukrář Skála (V Celnici 1034/6, 110 00 Nové Město)

We loved how everything was still Christmassy, despite it being the 30th of December. The atmosphere at the markets and the bustle of the town in between alleys and on the streets was just lovely to experience. I don’t really know how to explain why I love Prague but I guess it just feels a bit magical over there. Overwhelming in tourist places, very calming otherwise.

We went back to Dresden in the evening, after sunset. See you again someday, pretty town!
