So I arrived into Prague and it hit me that I forgot to pack a power adaptor, which would have rendered the free Wifi at the hotel useless. The city was 4 metro stops away, and unfortunately for me I arrived on the National Public Holiday, so nothing was open. Just wanted to have a good nights sleep after what was a pretty stressful day.

My first full day I didn’t even bother to put my camera in my bag – there were so many photos taken, so many gorgeous buildings and views. I’ll try to write down here what each picture is, but to be honest there was so much information to take in that it may prove quite difficult.

So the first thing I wanted to do was to go on a tour. I know this is very touristy and quite lame, but I just wanted to nail the first couple of days down in tours so I knew everything and leave the rest to discover for myself and to do what I wanted.



First place I visited was Prague Castle, former residence of the President and said to be the largest ancient castle in the world.

Entrance to the castle


Some of the best views in town

St Vitus’ cathedral


Here we have the “Dancing House”, designed by Vlado Milunic, in co-operation with Frank Gehry, who designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. It is nicknamed Fred and Ginger as it was designed to resemble a dancing couple.

The Old Town City Hall and it's most famous attraction, the Astronomical Clock. Every hour the skeleton would chime a bell and out of nowhere some of the Apostles would appear. At noon all twelve can be seen.


Pictures from the Stare Mesto

The Rudolfinum, home of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra

Wenceslas Square, and the Wenceslas Monument from behind. One of the main squares in Prague, and finding your way here means you can find your way anywhere.

Vlatva River, with Charles Bridge in the background.

Some funky art exhibit we stumbled across

Shane, who so kindly rowed the boat for us on the Vltava. We met randomly on a tour, and were both alone, and thought "What the heck" He didn't stay for very long which was a shame :-(

So... that was all for Day 1. Coming up should be some Segway action and Cesky Krumlov!
