Sometimes a week seems a long time to spend in a city, however there is so much to see and do in Prague that we could easily have stayed longer.
Our next stop was to the Technical Museum, something James’ dad had recommended. It took us a while to find it but eventually we got there and spent the whole morning exploring several floors of old and new technical advances that had been made through the centuries.
After lots of reading and walking around the museum, we worked up quite an appetite so made our way back into the centre for our favourite type of food.
James’ ‘hurry up and stop taking pictures so I can eat’ face.
We had a look around the shops and picked up some souvenirs for home from the market stalls.
Later that evening we had a night time river cruise with dinner booked in. Both of our parents had done them on their visits and told us it was a lovely way to see the city.
We hopped on our boat and were greeted with a glass of bubbles.
We then made our choices of each course along with a bottle of wine. Once we had set sail, we had some live music to set the mood and the courses soon appeared.
We had a great view out of the window and watched the city as we ate our dinner. Whilst we waited for pudding, we could head to the top deck and look out without having a window in the way.
A lovely romantic evening, that had us feeling all loved up with each other and Prague.
The next day was slightly less romantic as we had a day trip planned to a Church made out of bones. But still an adventure.
We met up with our tour guide and took the coach to Kutna Hora.
The Church was an odd experience, very interesting and quite sombre – but I’m always intrigued by that kind of thing.
James had quite a different opinion of the place to me.
We then got back on the coach and took a tour of the cathedral in Kutna Hora, that was simply beautiful inside and out.
The views and whole surroundings were pretty impressive too.
That evening, we went to a lovely thai restaurant near our hotel. I would show you pictures but it was so dark in there they didn’t come out very well. You are even given torches to read the menu.
The next day was in fact our last day in Prague. We had an early evening flight home so we tried to fit in a couple of things before we had to leave.
Starting off with a pedal boat on the river to take in the last views of the city from a new perspective.
We’d worked off our breakfast pedalling up and down the river so once we were back on land, we went to a restaurant that had been recommended to us for authentic Czech cuisine.
We realised too late that we had let ourselves down and not had enough of the local food.
We ended our trip on a high with a visit to one of the cat cafes. Prague has 5 of them! Luckily for James we didn’t have time for all of them.
After waving goodbye to my new feline friends, we grabbed a cab to the airport and promised to return to Prague. An incredibly beautiful city, with so much to see and do. If you’re looking for a city break, I’d recommend Prague in a heartbeat.
