Prague at Night

   You know… sometimes things just don’t quite work out the way you planned them.

    This past summer when Holly and I went to Europe, we decided that we should stop for a day in Prague on our way to Germany.  I had heard so many wonderful things about the city that it seemed silly to pass right by and NOT stop… so the plan was we’d leave our friends behind in Krakow, spend a full day in Prague and then go to Munich the following day.  Well, a misunderstanding in Krakow led to a missed train (the last one of the day as luck would have it), construction on the tracks led to long delays and so by the time we arrived in Prague it was afternoon; our bus tickets for Munich were for the next morning.

    So what do you do if you’ve only got an evening in Prague?  With such a short time it didn’t make sense to do more than one thing.  After a short discussion with the people at the front desk, we decided to stroll down from the hotel and see the famous Charles Bridge and do what any other tired travelers would do… eat.  There are a good number of restaurants right by the bridge, many of which have outside seating, so after walking around for a bit we picked a table with a nice view and had a wonderful dinner.  Our waiter was hilarious, the food was amazing, and the city… well, it IS beautiful.  When we return this summer though, we’ll be sure to stay longer.  The city certainly deserves more than just a few hours! 🙂
