The house of Restaurant Pravda

Prague is a wonderful city and I always enjoy coming back, especially in the summer or whenever the weather is warm and it is possible to sit at one of the many outdoor cafés in the inner city. One of my friend’s wife, who had joined us the first day at the golf had left for Prague early in the morning to visit the city for the first time.

After our 18 holes and the obligatory beer in the club house, we drove the 50 km to Prague to meet her in a cafe in the Jewish area, Josefov next to the old new synagogue. It turned out to be at the restaurant where we were going to eat later the same evening, Restaurant Pravda.

Parizska
We enjoyed a cold beer outside and were stunned by the car displayed in front of us; no doubt that Parizska is the place to be seen. Parizska goes from Staromestske Nam and Na Frantisku and have many of the expensive fashion shops.

One shop we just had to visit before we went to our Hotel; was the Ice cream and cake shop just opposite the restaurant. They had great ice cream and I enjoy some great flavours. We drove towards the Golden Tulip Hotel Prague which is situated on the other side of the river behind the Prague Castle. The situation of the hotel is not situated ideally if you want to stroll around the inner city and just walk home but it gives you great quality for your money.

After a couple hours of relaxing at the hotel we went back the city taking one of the taxis in front of the hotel.

Football - the Russians are winning!
We made him drive us to the Charles Bridge. We were let off at Na Kampe and took the stairs up on the bridge. That end of the Bridge was under reconstruction and in narrowed the trafficking in to two small goose lanes of tourists. We walked the bridge and followed the Karlova on the other side entering a couple of beautiful churches enjoying their beautiful decorations and coolness.

We followed Seminarska and walked towards U Radnice and Male Nam before entering Staromestska Nam where the upcoming football game between Russia and Holland had put its clear mark. There were numerous beer stands and a large TV screen for all the fans. We walked towards Josefov after having enjoyed the atmosphere of the square.

After walking the area we entered Restarant Pravda and had a wonderful dinner. 2½ hour later we went back to the square just in time to see the mood of the Dutch spectators change dramatically due to a late goal, making the game go into overtime. We tried to find a place with live music but ended in the front room of the blues house in Tynska. We enjoyed the game and then agreed upon going back the hotel for a goodnight drink. We found a taxi in Stupartska and that turned out to be stupid-ski because this guy cheated us, but he couldn’t spoil our evening and the last cold beer in the hotel bar.

Congrats on your featured blog...yeah you've got to watch out for those taxi drivers. A lot of them will take advantage of the tourists and they can be found in every country that you visit...mine was in China!
