... waiting room in the train station where you can sleep and rest but we didn't see it so we slept on the floor just outside the closed lounge which was still pretty cold. We only saw the waiting room when we went to the toilet just before the next train. There are also coin operated lockers there for those stopping by Dresden for few hours during the day to store their bags and explore the city. From Dresden we took another train to Bad Schandau ...
... of people, food stands and shops set up. There is specific Czech bread roll called Trdelnik,or Trdlo which is rolled in cinnamon and sugar. I just had to try one because they were haunting me every where we went. The tour was fabulous as usual, however it looked like it was about to pour the whole time. Luckily it didn't! On the tour, we visited and learned about many famous sights in Prague. Our tour guide was actually Irish, his name was Declan and he had ...
... We got there in time to make some dinner consisting of the good ole traveller food, pasta! Every morning of our trip we had to be on the road at either 7 or 8am so we had another early morning to head up north to Husavik. Husavik is a popular town for whale watching and we were craving fish and chips so we thought this place would have awesome fish... on our way up we picked up a female polish hitchhiker, she told us that just the day before she got lost while hiking and had ...
... the interiour is huge) and the main point was Charles Bridge crossing the river with its 30 statues. We passed dozens of musicians and other artists, some of them wanted to make a painting for me, I denyed.
Old Town is full of cafes, small shops with souvenirs but full of tourists as well. I would say it was the most crowded part of Prague. We got to the Old Town Square with the Astronomical Clock (Orloj). The show, when apostles are wathing ...

After taking some more pictures of the spectacular views and scenery from there, we walked down a path and a few stairways and found ourselves back at the bottom of the hill. From there, we walked to another bridge that took us across the river, crossing into Old Town.

We booked quite a while in advance however when we arrived the room we booked and paid for in advance was unavailable as they were full. We were only told this after thinking we had been given the wrong room by mistake.
The place is quite noisy as I got woken up every night in the early hours. Whatever was above us sounded like it would come through the ceiling.
We were impressed with the breakfst that was included however the collection of dead bugs squashed into the table cloth put us off as well as some mouldy meat on the second day.
The staff were a mixture of helpful and just plain uninterested and uncaring.
Now for the good points, its close to everything while being a nice distance away way too. Right between two tram stops.
The view from our room over the river was beautiful and being woken up in the morning by the duks swimming past really made us smile.
Its not the best place we have ever stayed however it is also not all bad, we were dissapointed that our booking clearly ment nothing and nothing wad done to try and rectify it. We wouldnt stay again.
