Three Cheers for Prague

Today, March 31, Maria and I were up early to head to the airport for we were headed to Prague! After hearing such great things about the city, we knew we had to Czech check it out. Upon our afternoon arrival, we stepped out of the metro station to find ourselves on the sidelines of a marathon! With people cheering and crowds congregating, it was a great way to be welcomed to Prague. If only we had gotten there a day earlier…we could have ran it!

After catching the last two people cross the finish line, we followed the masses as they all headed to Old Town Square. Surrounded by sites such as the Tyn Church, St. Nicholas Church, and the Astronomical clock, it was a great place to start our Prague adventure! The square had such a good atmosphere as it was filled with small shops and stands like an outdoor market (which we later found out were part of an Easter festival). Maria and I had the greatest time walking around and perusing the stands.

Having not had lunch, we soon got struck by hunger! As it was already late afternoon, so we decided to get some “linner” and stopped in the nearest eatery that looked good. Not to keen on the traditional Czech food on the menu, we decided to at least have some Czech beers. I mean, it’s hard to say no when a beer is cheaper than water! I enjoyed a Pilsner Urquell (for one Euro!), with smoked salmon on toast.

After walking around a bit more and finding our hostel, we decided to head out for another round of beers – experiencing the best of Prague right? We both tried two different types of beer: Gambrinus and Branik. I have never been too keen on beer but am beginning to branch out and try different kinds. I must say the Czech Republic knows how to do it right!

P.S. Shout out to my Dad on his birthday!
