We had an apartment, two bedrooms, with a living room, walk in closet, full kitchen, balcony, entry foyer, and a bath with separate toilet room. The place was huge....and would have been a nice apartment to LIVE in, much less stay a few days.
The tram stops right in front of the hotel and you can buy full day tram/bus/subway tickets (one ticket covers all 3) from the front desk. Passable breakfast, and right on the river. We awoke Saturday morning to a farmers market/flea market along the river right outside our door.....and it was a great market! On Sunday, we woke to another market, of authors who were selling the books they had written.
Decent restaurants within a block or so, with bars and such in the same block. Had a very good Chinese meal about a block and a half away. Tesco supermarket is about a block from the hotel as well, if you prefer to cook in the apartment.
We liked it....it was a good choice.

... from Krakow back to Warsaw was quite interesting. I sat next to a woman who is a monitor for the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). She was headed to the Donetsk, Ukraine where she along with other monitors drives around to count tanks, guns and general observations. She'll be there to the end of the year, a short holiday in Jan and then back until at least March. For some reason (in the hour we had together) ...
... and had the best views. She was right. We got off at Vyton walked a little way following the signs and walked up the stairs. As you go up there are a couple of viewing platforms, the view is great but as you enter the castle grounds and walk the wall, this is where the view really stands out. You have sweeping down the river away from Prague. We walked around the castle wall, with a wide path made for strolling and taking in the views and the parkland. Stopped ...
... particularly good because of the drastically different and old buildings surrounding it. I guess it's a love it or hate it type thing. The stroll gave us a glimpse of a different part of Prague, one we had yet to see. There seems to be no place you can go here that doesn't cause you to stand in wonder and marvel at how beautiful it is. A bowl of hot rabbit stew for dinner (I love seeing this stuff on the menu!) and we visited the Old Town square for the last time. I ...
... walked past the immense Tyn Church. This gothic style church stands in stark contrast to the art nouveau architecture of the town. Its size and architectural style put it so out of place that it almost feels like you’re looking at a caricature of a town square instead of actually standing in one. Near the church stands the Astronomical Clock. This clock was centuries ahead of its time, able to keep the time, track the phases of the ...
... in the wrong terminal exit for Haydn for more than an hour. His phone was dead, and he finally found us by walking around the airport! We had been in Prague since 11am too!!! And still were late!!! Sorry Haydn!
So we started the 2.5 hour trip home about 11,30pm, but we had a lot to talk about to keep us awake! Back to Studniska for a rest!!!
Time to start thinking about washing and packing and how to fit the Mona Lisa in!
