Yesterday we drove to Prague (it's only two hours away!) to check out the festive Christmas markets. We park outside the city to save on money and mostly sanity and then ride the metro into the city.
Floral boutique shop set up outside the train station. I loved the gold spray painted mistletoe.
Fox and Jane at the top of Wenceslas Square.
The Old Town Square.
Quick video of the square:
I didn't know that you could climb the Old Town Bridge Tower! It costs about $3.50 per person and it was totally worth it for the view - all of Charles Bridge and the expansive Prague castle complex all in one stunning panoramic view! I wish we had known about this all the times we've brought family. So... better come back 'rents so we can take you here!
Next to the bridge is another favorite view point with a little patch of a garden. I will always remember eating Trdelník (a cake and sweet pastry made from rolled dough that is wrapped around a stick, then grilled and topped with sugar and walnut mix, and I've even seen them filled with ice cream!) with my mom, sister, and sister-in-law here.
Most colorful candied apples I've ever seen!
Walking back through the Old Town Square.
I couldn't take it any longer, the smell of roasting almonds in sugar got the best of me. Sooooo good.
Buying metro tickets. | Jane conked out on the 20 minute ride back to the car.
Perfect Saturday from start to finish!
