... lot of good people from a lot of different places in the world over the past 6 weeks, and I'm grateful for that.
At some point I intend to travel to nearby countries, though I don't know which yet. I will have to travel to Austria for my Visa, and I will probably visit Munich for Oktoberfest in a few weeks. Otherwise, though, I dunno! Maybe Switzerland? Romania? The UK?! Cardiff.
Until then, enjoy browsing through all the lovely pictures and videos below!
... worse for wear after the club. We caught the tram into the town square again where we met up with the tour guide who was running the free tour. It was a different company to the other one I had been doing, but it was still quite good. The tour guide was named Chris, and he was a young guy from Germany who was now living in Prague. He told us a few stories about Prague's gruesome history and it didn't drag on past the standard 2.5 hours (unlike Nigel)! I found the ...
Our first morning in Prague we went on a city tour. Our guide got us to Prague Castle before it actually opened for the day and since no one was there, we were able to take pictures uncluttered by other tourists.
We learned that every hour a changing of the guard occurs and we witnessed it as we entered the castle grounds.
Prague Castle is where the Kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman Emperors and Presidents ...
... players reading the chords ie fill-ins.
Betty herself had sported a striped black and white number which was adequately short. She would have looked like a zebra if lying down. She was good but the acoustics in the place were not the best. She would start singing with every song and then move aside [usually having a swig of beer] to allow for guitar or drum solos, then finishing up the song. I recognized a bit less than half the numbers, ...

We started our day at Charles Bridge which to enter you must walk through the gate and past the Watch tower, which of course, since I need to climb in every city made kel climb to the top of! But it was worth it because it had us amazing views of the city ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lippert Prague
Excellent location, perfect view
We stayed here in February with another couple.
This is absolutely best location hotel in Prague. We had a view to the Old Town Square. We had no planns, so we decided to take a sightseeing tour from the reception. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were looking for city centre location and this fits exactly to out expectations.
Our rooms were both on the 2nd floor, it had a romantic painted ceilings. We had a bit problem with internet in the room but reception helped us to solve it fast. There is huge choice of TV channels but TVs could be larger.
Breakfast was lovely, good selection of cereals, eggs, sausages etc. We felt that we saw the best of the city and we have enjoyed our stay. Would recommend this hotel highly.
Bumped from the Metamorphosis
Booked with the Metamorphosis Hotel (through Wotif.com) but moved to the Cerna Liska as no space at the Metamorphosis. Pleasant 3 star hotel. Nice rooms, good breakfast. Did not eat at the Restaurant. Great position over Wencelas Square (though noisy if you need an afternoon nap after wearing yourself out on walking the streets of Praque all day).
Staff were fairly mediocre.
Pretty peeved about being bumped as we did lots of research prior to booking the Metamorphosis.
We arrived at the hotel at 11pm to be greeted by it's spectacular setting. It lies on the edge of the Old Town Square, adjacent to a beautiful cathedral, with the Christmas market stalls and decorative trees and lights on its doorstep.
This is the 1st time I've felt the need to write a review about a hotel but given our experiences I felt I should on this occasion. This was the 2nd time we visited Prague (4 nights) and on the 1st occasion we stayed in a big globally known hotel. On this occasion the family wanted a little more authenticity.
Hello! My husband and I were bumped to this hotel by the Hotel Metamorphis nearby (who claimed to have lost a bunch of reservations). Apparently this is a 'sister' hotel.
My mother and I stayed at the Cerna Liska in April during our trip to Eastern Europe. The hotel was recommended in a brochure as a cosy, central hotel. The hotel is only small - 12 or 3 rooms and right on Prague's Old Town Square. It could not be more central!! The rooms are huge and the restuarant has a very cosy atmosphere. The breakfast only caters for hotel guests so not a great variety but very nice. The restuarant does open to the public for lunch and dinner and is very good - great variety!! We found the hotel staff very frendly and helpful and the whole atmosphere of the Old Town Square amazing. If we had any complaint (and this is not the hotel's fault, it would be the noise on some nights. Our room did not face the Square but the side street next to St Nicholas Church. As this is one of the main walkways to the Square. All in all, I cannot recommend this hotel more highly and if I were to go to Prague again (which I hope to do), I would stay here in an instant!!
Just returned from a three night stay at this hotel over the British Whitsun holiday so Prague was bustling but although this hotel is at a corner of the Old Square it was extremely quiet at night. We opened our curtains to a fantastic view of the square across to the Tyr Cathedral. Room was large with a beamed ceiling decorated in Delft blue Dutch-type circular paintings. The bathroom had a lovely shower and our only complaint was that the maid was not too thorough and we did not have clean towels at all. Perhaps we should have dumped them in the shower each day to give her the message and as the temperature was in the high eighties they never stayed damp!! Breakfast was a cold buffet and very tasty. I have raved about Prague since coming home and would say it is well worth a visit but three nights is not long enough.
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Cerna Liska for four nights between X-mas and New Year's 2004. As Prague's medieval streets are tough to navigate, it was a blessing to have such a centrally-located hotel. If we weren't sure how to get back to the hotel, all we had to do was look for the signs toward the Old Town Square, and we were home free. If you're directionally challenged in the slightest, and this is your first trip to Prague, I would recommend this place highly as it serves as a great "home base."
Frequent visitors to this hotel
We have stayed in this hotel about 5 times over the past 4 years, the location is perfect, nearly all of the rooms overlook the square, many of our friends and family have stayed to on our recommendation and really enjoyed their stay. The square can be a little noisy sometimes, but it is a small trade-off for the location and the views. Breakfast is continental and very enjoyable.
You could not find a better location in which to stay in Prague IF you are interested in staying directly on the Old Town Square. The view out of our window was one that we will never forget, looking out on the inspiring Tyn Cathedral. We had heard that this could be a noisy location, but we found it to be quiet and ideally located, within walking distance to so many sights in Prague. Our room
was large, comfortable and very clean. We had a delicious dinner in the hotel's restaurant. Just outside the hotel are market stalls, bustling
musicians, horses and carriages. I would not hesitate to stay here again while visiting Prague's
