We said our Goodbyes to our wonderful floating “home” along the Danube River on the early hours of debarkation day. The very helpful staff of Amawaterways hailed a taxi for us to take us to our bus stop. We booked our bus ride to Prague with Flixbus. It was a pleasant 4-hour bus ride. I ate the last of my Elisenlebkuchen on the way to Prague.
We arranged for a driver to pick us up at the bus station. We used our AirBnB contact to find us a driver. After dropping us off at our AirBnB, he set off to pick up our travel mates, my cousin, Issa and Kevin. Our apartment was at a busy tourist area so there was a lot going on all the time. Location was perfect though because everywhere we wanted go was within walking distance.
We were in Prague for about a day and a half. On our first afternoon, we had early dinner at Restaurace Mincovna right by the Old Town Square Christmas Market. Service was a bit slow but food was filling. Once we were done with dinner, we set out to walk around the market. It was really cold during our time in Prague. The nights were misty, making it more magical and mysterious.
For breakfast the next day, we went to Cafe Louvre. We had our fill of eggs and hot chocolate before we set out towards The Prague Castle Complex. We purchased a ticket package at the complex that allowed us to see multiple sites like the cathedral, the palace and many more.
On the way to the complex we crossed Karluv Most or Charles Bridge. It looks totally different. During the day, it is very lively with vendors along the way. At night, it looks hauntingly beautiful surrounded by light from its lamp posts and mist. I can only imagine how it is during the early hours of the morning.
Dinner on our last night was at MeetBurger because apparently we were missing “American” food. Afterwards, we strolled towards the Christmas Market at Old Town Prague for some market goodies. We really can’t miss having sausages, crepes and chimney bread!
It was a lovely two days at Prague. We did miss the ease of touring with a tour guide. But Prague was wonderful and easily navigable as long as we armed with Google Maps. The buildings were all pretty. And the cold weather made it even more romantic and magical.
