Prague photos

… will be online soon! I was going to do them tonight, but discovered fotopic had suffered a glitch resulting in the need to upload all my Serbian snaps again. I was impressed at their Restor-o-matic gadget, but very relieved that I keep all my photo files on my PC.

Anyway, it’s only (!) a month after Hazel, Raji, Ingrid, and I spent a fab weekend in Prague. Great apartment, located on the Castle side of the Charles Bridge, fantastic sights, plenty of beer, lots of Ice Hockey fans and the luxury of a pre-arranged airport transfer.

I’ll do a retrospective report once I’ve tidied up and fotopicced the photos. There are lots….. Prague’s a very photogenic place!

Update – December 2011: I’ve reincarnated my Prague, May 2004 set (formerly on fotopic at on Flickr – fotopic fail.

A great place for a weekend break, even when you coincide with the Ice Hockey World Championships!

Great apartment in Kampa (*right* by the Bridge), booked through aparthouse20, convenient flights on Friday/Sunday evenings with CzechAir, and an easy transfer between the two courtesy of the Prague Airport Shuttle guys.

Prague is a compact city, with sights conveniently split into two halves, balanced either side of the Charles Bridge. We spent Saturday exploring the Old Town, King Charles Square, Old Town Hall with the clock and the Tin Church, the Powder Tower, Wenceslas Square and the Jewish Quarter, with occasional stops to sample various beers! And on Sunday we headed West into Mala Strana and up to the Castle.
