My Trip to Prague



We stayed in Berlin the first segment of our trip and then went onto Prague via train.  It was a 4.5 hour train ride.  I loved the ride since we were able to see the beautiful countryside of Germany and Prague.




Prague is the capital and largest city of Czech Republic.  The population is approximately 1.25 million.  Prague's consists of various collections of architecture including Gothic, Romanesque, Renaissance, Baroque, and Art Noveau.










I love how seating is available outside, in fact, we ate outside every meal.  We were thankful for beautiful weather, too!








There was a Czech festival in the square with music and entertainment.  I fell in love with the wicker stroller and the handmade Czech pillow and stroller blanket.

We saw these pastries on every corner of Prague.  They are called Trdelnik.  They are a cinnamon pastry that are rolled on dowels over coals and baked until golden brown.

Walking over the cobble stoned Charles Bridge......


Entertainment: We attended a concert in the Lichtenstein Palace.  I wanted to take more photos however no cameras were permitted.

One of my favorite Czech bakeries in Prague.  I loved their Illy Americano coffee too!

My favorite meal in Prague was at Savoy Cafe see here.  I had the best Baked ham brioche bread with Gruyère cheese and poached egg.  Oh, they also have a patisserie, so on my way out, I ordered a delicious fruit tart to go!









So long Prague!  It's time to go back home!

I hope to come back to visit you soon!
