... good (for a change).
We walked further down into the Old Town to the Altmarkt (Old Market), which is now no longer used as a marketplace, but it is a large square, surrounded by cafes and an old church in one corner. We had burgers for lunch, then it was time for a return to collect our bags and head to the station, back to Prague on our 5pm train.
