Our second day in Prague took us to Old Town (Staré Mĕsto) and Josefov, the old Jewish quarter.
One of the highlights of Old Town is the Astronomical Clock on the side of the old town hall. The clock was built in 1410. There's a legend that the municipal council, upon seeing the end result and being very impressed, wanted to be sure …
The drive to Prague and our hotel took most of the day. Negotiating big city traffic is not my idea of a good time and Prague is not a car-friendly town. The task was made much easier by the fact that Bruxi brought a GPS into which we could enter our destination address and it took us right there. GPS makes traveling so much easier.

We began "under the horse's tail"- literally at the foot of a statue of Good King Wenceslas sitting on his enormous horse. This statue sits at one end of Wenceslas Square, the heart of the Czech Republic's political history. Here we learned about the Velvet Revolution when communism was finally overthrown in 1989. We walked along the huge boulevard and had lunch here before jet lag finally caught up with us.

... rainy miserable weeks we've had in UK. Prague is a place full of young free spirited people, all enjoying life and fun- a big University culture similar to our cities of Bath and York. And, there's plenty of room for oldies too. A diverse friendly, happy, clean place to be, visit and enjoy for all. Only downside -smoking allowed in restaurants, cafés and bars!! Oh, and I put on 2Ib .... Dam it. Bye to our dear friend Prague.. Until next time. Sue and Simon ...
... has decided it's the best deal and get something. Just a wee bit frustrating! I did managed to slip in a couple of T-shirts since we haven't done any washing in awhile it was a good top up. We then headed back to the hotel for a rest. We lye down and 1 minute Scott was asleep and put for nearly two hours. He has a bit if a sore throat and blocked nose, plus dinner not sitting quite right with him last night he needed a rest! 5.30pm came around very quickly ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAparthotel Sibelius Prague
An apartment hotel so we had a fully furnished kitchen with living area and separate bedroom. Our stay was short and we were offered a great rate - competitive with a much smaller hotel room. If you're looking for a full service hotel with concierge, lobby, bar, restaurant, gift shop, lots of staff and full facilities you'll be unhappy here. For what it is, an apartment hotel, it was great. I would happily stay here again.
