SUMMER IS HERE

“The tans will fade but the memories will last forever.”

Put the winter clothes back in the cupboard, go out into the open and into pure pleasure: the weather is at its best and it is only May! So enjoy the weather!

Some people are fond of summery temperatures, not having to move out of the house; for all others, however: Out of the booth, good mood and summer air sniff!

Nothing beats summer evenings where you get the long-awaited cooling off of the hot day & no more jackets are needed! The summer is not so far, but we are looking forward to it! Especially on the airy summer dresses and skirts! Summer means: Combine what ever it takes!

PRAGUE – DAY FOUR

LAST DAY! So sad! We just wanted to stay there forever but nevertheless we really enjoyed our last few hours in that crazy city.

Do you know that sight “Petřínská rozhledna” (Petřín Lookout Tower)? It is one of the most popular landmarks of Prague besides the Castle or the Old Town of Prague. The tower is a loose copy inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The view from its top overlooks not only the whole city. Actually on a clear day you can see nearly all of Bohemia. Sounds interesting right? We thought the same! So we made our way to the metro, went all the way to the right station and later than decided not to do it. We were afraid of a too long journey because we had to leave Prague at 5.30 pm and you need to bring along a lot of time to hike up the hill to the tower and back down.

We quickly decided to sneak into the Golden Lane next to the Castle of Prague. The entrance is chargeable. The ticket includes other attractions you can visit around the castle complex. The Golden Lane consists of small houses which are painted in different bright colors. Many of the houses are cute little souvenir shops and there is a museum of medieval armoury. A crowd of people rolled through the narrow alley which has pushed the heat even more. After that we walked to the Charles Bridge and to the Old Town trying to find a restaurant. As soon as we sat down under a restaurants parasol it began to rain, like pouring rain! Unfortunately it continued to rain so we determined to go to the shopping center Palladium again to protect us from the bad weather. Well we enjoyed the last few hours and went on our journey back home in the evening.

Lets just say Prague is a breathtaking city. No more words needed!

PRAGUE – DAY THREE

“Oh wow, day three out of four! The half is already over! Doesn’t matter! There is still enough time!” Our thoughts as day three started.

We got up early in the morning at 8:00am (like every other day), went down for breakfast and got ready to start a great new day in Prague. We decided to hike up to the Prague Castle. It was so hot and there was a huge stairway up to the top but nevertheless we did it (with a freaking sweaty face). We had such a beautiful view all over Prague so if you are in Prague you should definitely go to the castle. Even more beautiful is the cathedral. You can take so many great pictures as you may have already seen on our Instagram (or scroll down for more). The castle complex has such a good advantage! It was quite parky so you could endure it really well.

We also wanted to discover the Golden Lane next to the cathedral. We did it the next day.
Later than we went through the Royal Garden of the castle and sat down in a cute little restaurant because we were starving.

Now to one of the best highlights of our trip! We went on a pedalo for an hour and paddled on the river Moldau. Loved it!!!! 100% recommendations! It is such a nice feeling watching all the buildings and sights from another perspective.

In the evening we just strolled through the streets and small alleys and watched the sun set behind the Prague Castle. Amazing view! Loving all those little alleys and their restaurants or cafes. You will find restaurants raging from sushi to pizza places or special beer bars. So many cultures are represented but we do not complain. There are so many people from all over the world like Russia, China, Great Britain or Germany. So many nice and friendly people. We think the Czech Republic gets more interesting for people all around the world because it has increased in the standard of living and the safety. We plan to visit more of the Czech Republic. Check out our photography down below.

PRAGUE – DAY TWO

So… let´s go. Our day two in Prague. It was a very hot day! Even hotter than the first day hence we decided to explore the department stores. There is nothing better, at temperatures of 36 degrees, to go shopping in a chilly place. We were in the Palladium, quite near namésti republiky. Yeah…and we spent a few hours in the shops at this place like Top Shop, Reserved, H&M, Mango, Calvin Klein, etc.. You can believe us, the moment we went through the door to go outside was the worst. Felt like the heat was killing us and as we walked in the heat we envied every passant with a mini fan.

We walked further through the streets and arrived at a beautiful boulevard full of people. Do you know that situation when you choose your holiday destination and there are places or sights you definitely want to visit during your stay? We had planned to visit the Václavcké náměstí. And we actually visited it even more than once as we later realized, because the moment we walked along the beautiful boulevard, we did not know that it was the Václavcké náměstí. That was super funny as we walked out the metro station(on our 4th day in prague) and realized we already went there but more of that later.

After that we went to a park at the new town side called Kampa to just not to collapse. The park offers a great view all over the old town of Prague. We really recommend Prague to you doesn’t matter where you go it is always entertaining to listen or watch the street musicians and street artists.

PRAGUE – DAY ONE

So in these posts we want to show and tell you our experiences in Prague. We decided to separate the posts in sights and our outfits we wore that day.

We finally arrived in Prague and were pretty much impressed from the first look of the city! Unfortunately we had to carry our suitcases with us till check-in at 2pm so we went to the river Moldau, sat down in a park and watched the Charles Bridge and the Castle of Prague from far away. Let’s just tell you a funny story! Okay, so we went into a metro station and there were these “alarm systems” at the entrance and Mellis suitcase trigged an alarm. The officer forced her to open her suitcase right in the middle of the entrance. By the way there were a lot of people and of course they were starring at us. Melli followed his instructions. The officer opened his eyes wide and immediately said that she can close it again because the case was a mess of clothes, shoes, accessoires and many other stuff.

After checking into the hotel we could finally enjoy the city without our heavy suitcases. We went to Staroměstské náměstí, Karlův most and strolled through a lot of streets in Prague till our feet hurted. FUN FACT! We walked 17,4 km that day!

The old town of Prague is just breathtaking! We could not stop taking pictures of it. These cute little alleys and their tiny restaurants and cafes. Even tho it was really crowded it did not matter because the people are so nice and friendly there. Oh and it is super easy going by train/metro. Prague only got 3 lines in all directions but the stations are likely more far away like there is no station at every street. We never rushed into the wrong train. The metro is such a cool experience.

It was pretty warm that day especially while carring our suitcases. The city heats up enormously and makes the day difficult for you but hey! better than rain. After this exhausting day we fell in our beds and slept at once pretty excited about what the next day in Prague offers. We will tell you that in our next posts. For now just enjoy these photos we took.
