Prague Part 2

On our second day in Prague, we decided to take an Alternative Prague Tour, about which I’ve seen good reviews online. I think the biggest benefit of the tour was the realisation that Prague was much more than just the old town. I felt that I made a mistake by not researching more about the city before coming.

We started with some legal graffiti walls and then continued to a cool foodcourt-type outdoor area selling very interesting foods and drinks. We had a dinner reservation, but we still grabbed some French fries.

We visited some cafe/art spaces, which we for sure wouldn’t come across ourselves. The guide was telling us things about history, but also about Czech mentality, traditions, and how the country has been changing.

The tour finished in a place called Cross Club, which indeed looked really cool and I would’ve loved to sit on their terrace in the summer. This time it was a bit too cold to sit outside, so we sat inside and ordered some ice tea and beers. I had the ice tea and it was delicious. If not for the dinner reservation, I would’ve loved to try their food as well.

In the evening we had dinner at restaurant Mlýnec. The restaurant was very cool and the service was great, but something was lacking. The food was good, but not great and I think that wine pairings could have been better as well.

Because we had plans to visit Sedlec Ossuary the next day, I was lamenting that I once again managed to visit Prague without reserving enough time to see everything I wanted. 😀 I was especially interested in visiting DOX Centre for Contemporary Art and I once again missed the Dancing House. Well, at least I still have something left to see the next time I’ll go back. 😉
