Prague- June 18-19, 2017

Our first day in Prague began with finding breakfast.  We had to buy transport tickets so we went to a random station and got off.  We bought tickets and found a little café to get some breakfast.  Again, no eggs and bacon, but it was delicious !-- not to mention beautiful.

 Then we set off into the city.
Here are some pictures of the city.
Typical Prague street in old town

Czech pastry- they put ice cream or other fillings in them like Nutella! (which is VERY POPULAR)

Rachael and I on the old bridge

View from the bridge

Strange curvy building

Astronomical Time piece

Entrance to the old bridge

Fence of Locks: People from all over the world leave locks on this fence with messages on them.
Love padlocks in Prague. Love padlocks (also known as Love Locks) are a custom by which padlocks are affixed to a fence, gate, bridge or similar public fixture by sweethearts to symbolize their everlasting love.

Light lunch in Prague

Stairway to Prague Castle--We got some cardio in !

Castle Guard- The Prime Minister actually lives here and works here.  Thousands of tourists all around !

Prague Cathedral

I thought this was strange.  I understand lighting candles for prayers, but I think it gets a bit ridiculous when you pay for a fake candle.


Dinner at a cool restaurant in Prague where they have customers write messages on coasters and post them all over the walls !

They even make cosmetics out of beer !

Inside the castle

"famous" sculpture.  Everyone touches the penis so it gets shiny !

Prague Senate Building and grounds

Amazing art work explained

After the castle complex and senate building we decided to visit the Beer Geek, a place suggested by Lonely Planet.  They have 32 craft beers on tap !

This soft drink is more popular than Coke or Pepsi in Czech Republic

On the old bridge they had craft vendors.  Apparently Prague is known for a specific type of art work.

We also checked out the McDonald's here to see what was on the menu !
