A WEEKEND IN PRAGUE

After our trip to Switzerland proved that we could travel longer distances, and navigate when the Sat Nav isn’t always on top form, we decided it was time to widen the net and try making for some cities a little further afield.  Breaking out our trusty Europe guide, we looked…

OLD TOWN SQUARE, PRAGUE

On your list of things to see in Prague, should definitely be the Old Town Square. Said to be one of the finest in Europe, the square is ringed with historic buildings and as it is pedestrianised, you only need to worry about the odd horse and carriage. The impressive…

CHARLES BRIDGE, PRAGUE

CHURCH OF ST NICHOLAS, PRAGUE

I had heard such wonderful things about Prague, I knew I would love it.  My camera (as you can probably imagine) was working on overtime. I’ve got quite a few posts prepared on the different attractions that we visited, but I’ll try to space them out a little, so that…
