Lovely Prague - Part 1...

We arrived from Prague last week. We went there for 5 days, since Mark ran the Prague Marathon for the 1st time.

It easily became one of my favourite cities. I love its cleanliness, the way everything works, and how calm the traffic is. People seem relaxed there. The shops (at least in the old town) stay open until late, and you can get some really nice ice cream and lovely drinks and food.

Also, that mix of Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau is absolutely enchanting, and very very unique.

My favourite walks must be the ones we took in the Josefov, the Jewish quarter area. Absolutely magical.

But tonight, I just want to post some curious pictures we took in several different places... Please click on the thumbnails to magnify them.

Puppet shop near the Castle! It is indeed a magic town...
Mark and friend, before going for a stroll in the Castle...
I call it the "Fawlty Towers", although it is a wonderful building with amazing design...
Virgin Mary in a cage...
Not even statues seem to be free of cellulitis these days...
Kafka in Josefov...
Golem's attic in the Altneu synagogue...
Retro Pepsi ad!
Sausages!
A saint in cage. This time in Charles Bridge. Funniest thing was some parents with a little child who insisted in pushing the kid into those bars. Kid was scared to death (even I was), but the oh-so-sensitive parents did not rest until they got a picture of him, crying his lungs out...
Toys, toys and more toys! This is a very cute video! Toy shop in Celetna...

  1. Prague is beautiful ancient city and the best way to get around Prague and see more interesting places its use taxi. It's better to use online taxi service Kiwitaxi http://kiwitaxi.com/Czech+Republic/Prague+Airport this is great way to save time and money. I think this is the easiest way to catch a taxi and check the trip price.
