Ok, Prague, here we come.
In our past travel experiences we have relied on the Hop-On Hop-Off bus system to acquaint us with unfamiliar destinations. Well, one of the first interesting observations about Prague, at least in the first week of October, which I would have thought is the shoulder season…NOT. The rather small 30 passenger buses were extremely busy (imagine the crowds at Disney world, throughout the entire city) and depending where you boarded you may have to wait for two or three or even four opportunities to board. Once we managed to find two empty seats a great way to see the city highlights and decide where to start your walking journey.
The cityscape of Prague and the wealth of unique buildings and structures in a word is surprising, for instance, Charles Bridge, The Hanging Man, Old Town Square, The Clock Tower, Prague Castle and of course the St.Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle.
Other interests, distinctive shopping venues, eye opening architecture, unique and tasty dining experiences, of course Czech Beer, and hot wine…yes indeed..hot wine.
The city is magnificent, so much to see and do, we personally recommend at least four entire days just to scratch the surface of this amazing and historical city.
