Photo Diary: Prague Day Two

Friday, 15 March 2019

Day two of our trip to Prague was when the heavens well and truly opened. There was barely a minute without an intense downpour of rain, and with a massive drop in temperature it was pretty uncomfortable to be doing much of the sightseeing we had planned. We tried to get into Cafe Na Hlas for breakfast after reading good reviews online, but as predicted they were unfortunately fully booked. So just around the corner we found Café Pavlač where we had breakfast burgers and waffles to shield us from the rain!

We spent a lot of the day researching the area we were staying in so we didn't have to stray too far in the weather conditions - there are loads of cafes, bars and restaurants within 10 minutes of Ondříčkova so it was a great location to be in. We managed to find a Greek restaurant called Taverna Olympos within 5 minutes of our apartment, and I absolutely loved this place. Anyone that knows me will know how much I love a Greek holiday, and their food is a big reason why. Although being in the Czech Republic, the vibe as soon as you stepped into this place was reminiscent of nights i've had in Crete. We had Tzatsiki to start which went down very nicely with a bottle of Mythos beer. The main courses weren't as good as i've had in Greece (I had Kleftiko and Paige had Gyros), but it was definitely good enough to recommend, and more than I expected being in Prague not Greece, of course! We both had 2 beers, a starter and a main and it totalled 900 CZK (around £30) which at about £15 each, would never be possible back home in London.

After dinner we jumped on the Metro into the city centre to check out Charles Bridge and get a Chimney Cake which are available on every corner you turn in Prague. Views of the castle are beautiful at night and all the gothic architecture around and on the bridge is really spectacular. We also visited Black Angels cocktail bar, where we were seated by a pianist who opened his set with A Star Is Born's 'I'll Never Love Again' and my favourite Piano piece ever, Yiruma's 'Kiss The Rain'.

Our third day gave us rain, snow, and some seriously heavy hailstones, therefore I don't have much content to share, except from the lovely little pub we found around the corner. The Tavern is a burger and cocktail bar located about 10 minutes from Winston Churchill Square.
