Prague - It's cold out there...
… but the beer is very cheap. Which I know is an important thing for my readers. I can also agree with their choice of food, lots of pork and goulash with stodgy dumplings and thick sauce. Pig knuckle is much nicer than it sounds. I spent a long weekend in Prague, it was -10 for most of it but luckily the city isn’t very big and you can reach all the usual tourist spots by foot if you’ve got a day or two.
Most of the actual tourist spots are a little… underwhelming but the highlight for me was a concert we attended at the Narodni Muzeum (National Museum). We walked in and were pointed to our seats; which were cushions on the staircases. Ten minutes later the Czech String Chamber Orchestra walked in and were amazing for just over an hour. It felt very private and was worth every penny (it cost just over 20 quid). On the other hand the Prague Astronomical Clock and Wenceslas Square are on every list of the cities “top 10 locations” and both were disappointing.
Oh,and just in case anyone else is as dumb as me - Prague does not use Euros… Fortunately they have cash machines in the airport lobby.
