David and I spent a few days in Prague in early January. Snow covered much of the ground and some of the views were quite stunning
We soon headed to the Old Town Square to see the Christmas market
The castle looked stunning in the early evening dusk
We headed up to the castle the next day and had some hot wine to keep out the cold
And then walked down from the castle via Petrin and the slippery slopes to have lunch at the Cafe Savoy.
The next day we crossed the river by ferry and walked to opposite Roztocky where we took another ferry to cross the river again. After a short luch at Roztocky we walked to Unetice and stopped at the Pivovar there. By this time we were tired and got a taxi back to the flat rather than wait another mhalf an hour for the bus.

It snowed a lot during the night and the following morning saw us walking up the path towards Baba
The trees were covered in snow
And very beautiful
A real fairy land
At the end of March Stephany and I went back to Prague. Here we are walking through the Letenské sady with Stephany's cousins
The views of Prague from the gardens are stunning
And blossom was on the trees
We walked right through the garden. It was lovely and sunny.
Here we are in the basement bar of the Obecní dům
Sitting all ready for the start of the Bartered Bride at the Národní divadlo
During the interval
We came out of the Národní divadlointo the cold. But the production of Smetana's Bartered Bride was so outstanding that we didn't mind the cold as we waited for the tram
We were back in Prague in October and here we are walking by the river in Kampa on our way to dining at the Cafe Savoy
The smile on her face knowing that she was going to the restaurant!
What a lovely view of the Charles Bridge
And of the river
And then during the week there were lunches with friends
And, of course, with Stephany's cousins the Maliks
Another day we went with Jiri Malik to the Havlíčkovy sady
There are a lot of beautiful trees in the park
That overhang winding paths through the gardens
And then quite unexpectedly you are standing in a vinyard that hugs the slopes of the park
During the last full day we headed back to the restaurant half way up Petrin. The views are superb from there.
After a delicious meal we walked bsck via the Strahov monastery and the castle
And took one last look at the panoramic view before heading back home
