I.e.: polish "laska" (super hot girl) means in czech "love"
Polish "szukać" (to search for something) means in czech "f***"!!!
Now immagine what comes out when i aks a person in Praga and say that i am searching for somebody;) (sic!)
Anyways, our cultures are close enough to understand the life there very good.
This time i went to Praga because my friend Radek needed to make some researches about anciend writings, and had to visit the National Museum with the ancient scripts department.
First - after we arrived in the Livar Hostel - we took the metro (of course!) and visited the Hradcany with the castel and cathedral. There was a new vineyard on the hill - which was there for centuries but after World War II wasnt restored (which is wierd, coz Praga wasn't destroyed by bombs in the war, the whole country give up when germans went and occupied it). This happened 3 years ago and looks pretty nice. On Hradcany hill we saw also the archeologists who were digging in the ground, making there reasearches about the history of the castle.
Next stop was Karluv Most (bridge) - where all the tourists come to take the pictures and walk across the Vltava (river). We enjoyed the sunny day there, sitting not on the bridge but at the street at Staromestske Mlyny, watching the Hradcany and the bridge.
We walked from there a bit towards main square in the Stare Mesto (Old Town) - stayed a bit at the main attraction there the sun clocj at the city hall tower and then sat down for coffe at the street caffe on Rytirska (str.).
Then namesti Republiki with cool praga-style tower Prasna Brana. when we got tired we went to Narodni Muzeum, coz Radek had to make some appointment for the next day. We visited also the newest part of metro line C (dir. Letnany). Then we went for dinner in the resto Archa near the hostel with the czech speciality: smazeny syr a brambory (fried cheese and pataos). After dinner we went back to Old Town, we wanted to get some nice views at night. We visited more or less the same places again, but it looked differently so we loved it again. We climbed the whole way from Mala Strana up to the highest point of Hradcany, and had the breathtaking view over the city at night.
To the hostel we arrived at midnight taking the last metro train.
