Prague

It has to be said that driving in or around Prague is a complete nightmare, by far the worst experience we've had so far. This being due to no sat nav, a street map in a foreign language and of no use since the routes marked make no allowances for height restrictions.
We got stuck twice in front of overhead tram wires and low bridges and the town is cut in several sections by the river and bridges that need to be crossed.
Oddly enough there are NO cycles in Prague...not because they are banned but because it is probably too dangerous to ride there
We got lost several times and bear in mind we'd had two days here before Emilja flew out.


Camera shy or what?



They made more money later...



Rub the bronze...say a prayer


Well thumbed bronze on Charles Bridge





Loads of this...




Crepes were just superb...





All in vain mate..
Most of the tourists were Japs or Americans so had no clue as to what your demands were...


Castle complex in inclement weather





Very nice but no thanks, we'll just walk


Thanks Emilja..








If you're in to period architecture then go visit Prague, its stunning..
If you're in to hoards of people moving along like lost sheep, go also



The posh section was quite something with the usual doormen preventing entry to anyone who doesn't look like they would cry come payment time...



At last the sun shone..






A trip back to the famous Charles Bridge rounded off the evening




We really enjoyed Prague
