A visit to Prague Castle and the best hot chocolate place in the world!


On our fourth day in Prague, we roamed the streets in the Indianbeautie style. No destination, map or route in mind, we just walked aimlessly on the streets, soaking everything with all our senses. While walking around we stumbled upon a coffee shop called Kaficko, where we have the most thick and yummiest hot chocolate ever. I highly recommend it! Only after coming back to the hotel room, I checked it's reviews and realised that many people have rated highly about this place.

We then visited the Dancing House, to be honest, I was left under whelmed by it and was not sure why it's so famous.

On our last day in Prague, we visited the Prague castle. It was snowing the entire day, so we couldn't take many pictures. I will say that the day was well spent checking out all the parts of the castle. The best part was the Golden Lane which has a row of small colourful houses. In this row, house no. 22 belonged to Franz Kafka which is now a souvenir shop.

Prague- Underground nuclear bunker, John Lennon wall and Kafka museum




Out of the five days that we stayed in Prague, this day was the most enjoyable day as I experienced  and saw surreal things. We started the day by going to the most gorgeous church- St. Nicholas. I am soon going to post a video from Prague where you'll be able to see the full gorgeousness of the church, this picture doesn't even do any justice.

Then we went to the Kafka museum. Kafka is one of my favourite authors, so I thoroughly enjoyed the museum learning about his life and experiences. If you love literature, then this museum is a must go when you are in Prague. 

Outside the museum there is also a David Cerny's sculpture - Peeing Statues. Many people come to the museum just to see the installations. Quite interesting, I must admit!

Later we also went to the Kampa museum and came across more installations by David Cerny and obviously we had to pose funnily next to them. After lunch we went to see the John Lennon wall, cannot believe a wall has so much history and represents symbols of love and peace. 

Then comes the most interesting experience of my life, we got to go the underground nuclear bunker built during the WW II and got to see the equipment, uniforms, gas masks. It was built out of fear and precaution in case a nuclear war breaks out but thankfully they never had to use it. This is a must go tour if you ever go to Prague. This tour includes a tour on communism too. 

The day was full of fun, wonderful experiences and information.

Prague- Visit to Jewish Quarters and Old town square





Our intense desire to set foot in a new country took us to Czech Republic- Prague this time. It's one of the best places we have visited in the recent times. I got intrigued and interested in the history of the place where as Dinesh was excited about the architecture. 

We spend almost 5 days in the capital. As we always do, on out first day we spent the time walking around the streets and took everything in with all our senses, at a slow pace. 

On our second day, we visited the Jewish Quarters. I have to admit, reading about the history of Jews in Prague made my heart wrench. Old new synagogue and Jewish Cemetery are must go places for all the history lovers out there.  I was so tantalised by all the information I received through my eyes that I bought some books to read later. If you guys ever go to Prague, don't miss these amazing places with loads of history!
