Welcome to Prague
I’m in Prague! How exciting!
But before all of that, I need to introduce you all to someone very special, so without further ado, meet Bunny.
My traveller bunny and I used to go everywhere together when I was a kid, but as is often the case with growing up, he was eventually stored away, sadly forgotten. It was only during an end of year sort out that we were reunited, and it was then I decided to make up for the lost years and bring him with me on my future travels. So, that’s Bunny, who you’ll likely be seeing a lot of from now on.
Anyway, back to the adventure at hand. A relatively spontaneous getaway to Czechia (with the parents for a change), this one kind of crept up on me, but so far I get the impression coming here was good decision. Dropping our bags at our downtown apartment for the weekend, we immediately got stuck in and headed out into the elements to explore.
Wandering aimlessly, we spent the following couple of hours getting lost in the winding cobbled streets of the Old Town Square and Jewish Quarter, eventually ending up at the famed Charles Bridge, a cute stone structure that’s very photogenic considering.
Exhausted from our early start, however, we soon retired to our apartment to check in and enjoy a little afternoon siesta. And the word stunning does not do this place justice. As far as city centre apartment rooms go, it doesn’t get much better than this. The receptionist at the Rybna 9 Apartments couldn’t have been lovelier, and was chocked full to the brim with useful information about both our booking and the city. Then we got to the room, and wow. Lush, genuinely.
Sleek and modern, the apartment’s a large space with all the amenities you could possibly want, and two full balconies, one accessible from each bedroom. We even have O2 TV.
But, as much as I would have happily stayed in all night, we were hungry, and at the end of the day, we’re here to actually see the city – and the night views over the river were worth trekking back out for, not to mention the burger and drinks we got to indulge on in a cosy outdoor dining area of a cute Irish pub (I know, I know, but we’re planning to try some more traditional grub at some point, ok?).
With a jam-packed day planned for tomorrow it’s an early settling tonight, so stay tuned for my further adventures as we all take on Prague for real.
Oh, and here’s a little bonus piccy of Bunny checking out the view from my bedroom for good measure – goodnight!
