Czech Prague Out
Prague, what can I say other than this city surprised me the most! With all the amazing cities on my itinerary, I didn't expect Prague to be so picturesque. It is the City of a Hundred Spires,” it's known for its Old Town Square, the heart of its historic core, with colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock, which gives an animated hourly show. Completed in 1402, pedestrian Charles Bridge is lined with statues of Catholic saints. The first night in Prague we orientated ourselves by walking around the city to get a feel for it. We happen to get on the Charles Bridge right as the sun was setting and to top it off there were a couple musicians playing Mama Mia on the violin. Then and there, I knew I was going to love this city. Later that night we decided to visit an Ice Bar. I've heard about these ice bars and hotels but couldn't imagine why anyone would want to visit a bar full of ice?? Isn't it cold and uncomfortable? Well just as we were getting all dressed up, hair fixed, makeup done, we go outside to walk to the metro only to find it is pouring rain. Here me and my friends are in cute black dresses, sandals, hair straightened, and even freshly applied mascara on. I know totally a first world problem! That didn't stop us though! We ran as fast as we could in the pouring rain to the metro to go to the ice bar (sounds like a good idea right)? Finally arrived to the ice bar or as the Europeans say, "disco" and they hand us mini jackets, then we head into a room made of ice. We get drinks that are in ice glasses. Hair starts to freeze, shoes are sticking to the ground, but it was so much fun. I highly recommend everyone going to an ice bar at least once. Don't worry they set a timer for how long you can be in there so you won't freeze. After our time was up in the ice bar, we headed upstairs where there is a five story club. Each floor has a different theme of music. We danced the night away. The name of the club is Karlovy lázně. The next day, we got up early and saw the Charles Bridge when there were little to no tourists and also went to the John Lennon Wall, because that is a must. But surprisingly, the wall is in this tiny neighborhood that could easily be overlooked. Yes you can write on the wall. I also toured the Prague Castle which has beautiful stain glass windows. If I had a dollar for every castle I've seen in Europe I could buy myself a castle.
