Prague is definitely an impressive city, best understood from a lookout on one of the surrounding hills. What a gorgeous perspective, and upon closer inspection, every building is covered in beautiful details. Our necks are sore from craning to see every riveted door, every sculpted door handle, every fancy window frame, every textured facade, every domed tower, every gilded spire.
Prague is absolutely full of fantastic tunes and is probably most well known for its classical and jazz music. You can't go anywhere without hearing music playing, so for our first full day here we let the music be our guide by basing our wanders around picking up our concert tickets in one place at a certain time and being at the concert location at a certain time
We really enjoy eating at local spots outside the tourist trap areas, but in cities like Prague where so many people are tourists, it's sometimes difficult to track down a local of similar age and taste to ask for dining suggestions. After our good luck with the guidebook suggestion for local-approved dinner in Berlin, we tried out a Prague restaurant and were again very pleased at a great price. Dishes ordered at Café Louvre: plum chili sauce hamburger with French fries and coleslaw, potato gnocchi with salmon, pesto and cream sauce, local beer, ice cream soda*.
*Delicious summer drink alert: tall glass of soda water, blackcurrant syrup, scoop of lime ice cream or sorbet.
