Prague, Czech Republic: Hotel International Prague

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. Located in the residential district of Prague-Dejvice, this Czech national landmark is one of your best bet if you are looking for a place to check in at Prague. Not only is it accessible from the Vaclav Havel airport but it is also quite near from the main attractions like the Prague Castle, Old Town, Charles Bridge and Wenceslas square. If you are more of the kind of person that likes to discover and experience the transportation system of a specific place, you will definitely like Hotel International Prague as the tram network is just a few meters away from it. It makes every place so near and very accessible.

Artworks Around

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. One of the things I adore about Europe is that wherever I go I am sure to find something that would catch my attention. Well, Prague is no exemption, if not more!  Here are some of the interesting things I have seen during my walk around the city! I bet these just compose a small fraction of the totality but they were already enough to keep me revelling about the fact that this city is just downright quirky and charming.

Seeing the Rest of Prague

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. It had been snowing hard the second day that we were in Prague. Actually, it was snowing hard then in most parts of Europe. Our tour guide said that Stuttgart even reached -38 during the early part of the morning. Good thing we were not anymore in Germany by then!

Fishy Lunch in Prague

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. Czech Republic is a haven for meat lovers but for those who prefer seafood, I am sorry to burst your bubble but it is a rarity to find fresh ones here. For one, the country is landlocked, which means you just could not get fresh off-the-boat catch on a whim unlike its neighbouring EU countries that reside on the west. The seafood had to be transported at a long distance before Czechs can even enjoy it. 

The Magnificent and Large Prague Castle Complex

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. Our tour guide has not yet experienced snow in Prague. It is actually unusual especially since she always visits the place during the peak of the winter season. So when she told us this fact, we were more than happy to hear it. At least we get the chance to escape the snow even just for a few days and enjoy better the city without being distracted by the snow.

Prague by Night

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. Prague is a city like no other. This little surprise is as quirky as it can get. With controversial artworks and statues scattered around, this city would not bore you even just one bit. We roamed around Prague after eating at the lovely and antique-filled U Císařů. It had been a cold night but we just endured it by snuggling more of our body under our coat, our bonnets and our scarves.

Welcoming Prague in U Císařů

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. Located along the so-called Royal Way near the Prague Castle, U Císařů, which literally means "The Emperors", invites you to a dining experience like no other. For one, the restaurant's interior is just absolutely stunning and evokes a feeling of a distant past. As you walk along the corridor right after the main door, every minute detail that you see along the way captures you. The dim lights help in setting the overall mood.
