The Hard Rock Cafe Prague,where we enjoyed a nice meal served by a waaaaaaaaay happy staff member!!
Thought of a blogger friend Catherine when I spotted the name!
Hop in and enjoy a guided tour of Prague centre in this beauty,one of many available!

The very colourful Old Town Square with the cabins in the centre during the food/drink/craft fair.

This glass building is referred to as the dancing lady as this is what it resembles apparently!

Best cafe I was in !A few steps from our hotel,The Grand Cafe Orient at the Black Madonna House,on the first floor accessed by lift if you must.
Statue of the Black Madonna on the side of the cafe
Cubism museum under the cafe
We spent one evening here listening to great jazz,the flyer describes the club as"a very unique location situated in a historical subterranean vault built in the xv.century"!We sat upstairs on what seemed like scaffolding holding up our floor,it was dark and full of atmosphere,drinks were very cheap and table service too,whats not to like!www.jazzungelt.cz
Jazz greats on the wall

Lovely cafe at the end of our walk over Charles Bridge towards Lesser Town,sheepskin rugs over the chairs to keep customers warm,plenty of overhead gas heaters,a great photo stop,but a little on the expensive side for our coffees and apple tarts with ice cream!
Sitting having coffee my favourite passtime in Prague or anywhere!

Interior of St.Nicholas Church on the Old Town Square,classical recitals and concerts are regularly held here.
This is the plaque on a creepy looking statue outside the theatre where Mozart premiered his Don Giovanni in 1787!

The statue from the front,faceless!


  1. I love the thought of the sheepskin lined seats!

  2. Wonderful photos! The architecture looked amazing. Sounds like you really got out and about and enjoyed the city.

  3. Hey thanks for that tag Kathleen - what a wonderful break you had and it sounds like you got really stuck in and enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere of the city. Never been - amused by the name of the hotel - only an E stands between us and them! Love the big glass and also the idea of the sheepskin seating! A great city break place.
    All the best, from a small city! (well, it was once a city, about 1400 years ago!)

  4. My goodness how different to my time in Prague. We visited soon after the country broke away from Russia and we were encouraged to go before it became commercialised and modernised. Glad we did. The old buildings and bridge are still magnificent though, especially the cathedral.

    Brings back good memories. I do plan to post on it some day. Did enjoy seeing the pictures of you Kathleen.

  5. Hi Kathleen!
    Looks like you are having a grand time! My dear friend's son and his family have been transferred to Prague from NY by IBM. Tough on the little ones.Must be a nice place to visit though!
