Day 4 started with walking around Malá Strana and enjoying the glorious sunshine. Still not overly warm, but the sun definitely helped!
Ben decided we had to stop in the colourful street so I could get typical blogger standing in the street photos.
Then it was time for an early lunch in the infamous Cafe Savoy. The Savoy was recommended by Lonely Planet as a breakfast or lunch hot spot. The management had definitely caught onto this. I’ll explain in a bit. For now let’s just admire the place.
If you order from the gourmet menu, your table gets transformed into a full white linen dining experience. Again, coffee delivered on a silver tray with water.
Ben ordered the best chicken of his life. We did have a bit of a wait, 20 minutes for the dish but so worth the wait.
I ordered a Salad Niçoise from the gourmet menu. You can’t deal but a huge slab of tuna was underneath as was the most perfect poached egg. I forgot to take more photos, as I was super hungry.
Remember when I said management had caught on about tourists? From what we could gather, if you had phoned and ordered a table you went through the archway into the back room. The clientele looked to be mainly businessmen and women having lunch.
Although, on the table behind me was a local having lunch with his 3 year old sun. The father had a morning glass of wine, whilst the son ordered mash with french fries. Smart kid!
All gone in a matter of minutes.
If you do visit, make sure to visit the toilets. At the entrance to the toilets you are greeted with the wine cellar. Notice the champagne already on ice.
The patisserie. Look at those mixers.
We were then of to Petřín Hill.
We took the funicular railway up to the top of the hill this time. The ticket machines only take coins. The tickets are based upon the length of time you travel. We opted for a 90minute ticket to give us enough time to go around the observation tower and back down again.
I am so glad we waited to go up the tower, the weather was honestly perfect.
Ben decided to bring his go pro, set up like this…
Here are some of the best photos I took overlooking the Prague skyline.
After walking back down the hill, we visited Little Venice. We didn’t do a boat tour, but did eat ice-cream!
Crossed the Charles Bridge again. I could spend all day here people watching, there was a constant stream of people, musicians, street artists to keep everyone entertained. Be warned though – picket pocketing is rife in this area.
We found another coffee shop on our list, Divadlo Na zábradlí. A local theatre with coffeehouse. Judging by the looks we got, it’s not normally visited by tourists. Definitely a place for all the artists in the city though.
After dinner in a restaurant near the Old Square, not great food. We called it a day. The dinner was made up by these views on the walk home.
