Our third full day in Prague took us around the New Town area. See the right hand side bar for other ‘Postcards’ in this mini-series!
We started our day by walking to Wencelas Square. It was such a commercial area compared to the Old Town and Castle areas – there were loads of big-name shops and supermarkets. However I spotted some streetart which broke up the monotonous chains of brands and McDonalds!
We then popped into the National Museum site on Wenceslas Square. The Museum is actually made up of about 6 different sites around Prague, but we were happy with just one visit here. There were two exhibitions – one on Czech Monachy in History and then one about experiences of childhood within the last century. The museum wasn’t too big, but kept us occupied for about 90 minutes (and there were interactive exhibits too – always a positive in my experience!)
It was then approaching lunchtime so we edged onto the Old Town area and found a cafe that served some Ghoulash soup in bread. It was delicious and I will definitely be trying this in winter with our slow-cooker!
We then wandered some more, around cobbled streets, got slightly lost, had a drink stop at another cafe. Before we knew it, it was approaching dinner, so we headed back to the Mala Strana and went to another restaurant a stone’s throw from our Hotel – called U Krize which was also a small hotel. 2 G&Ts, 2 large and delicious pasta dishes and some bread to share was about £15!
Stop by tomorrow for the last Postcard from Prague, which includes more streetart and the John Lennon Protest Wall on Kampa Island!
