Visiting Prague

We spent the weekend in Prague to celebrate Joe's birthday. We decided on Prague because the pictures in the brochure looked so lovely, and we weren't let down. It is a beautiful city, with beautiful architecture and a rich history.

We walked for miles, taking a guided walking tour on Friday which helped us find our feet and get an overview of the city. I was enthralled by the art nouveau decoration everywhere, and overjoyed to find an Alfons Mucha exhibition in the Old Square – he being one of my favourite artists. As it started to rain in the afternoon it was perfect timing to wander around the Mucha and Dali exhibitions.

A classical concert was held on the steps of the National Museum that evening, featuring among others’ Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. It was such a perfect setting, you could imagine you were transported back in time to the early 20th century, attending a private recital at a fashionable party.

After that we had just about enough energy to have dinner and take a tram back to the hotel to have a final drink and collapse into bed.
