We decided to drive to Prague following regular roads, not the highway, so we were taken through loads of cute villages, most of which we dont know the names of. We stopped at one for lunch, pulling up to a small restaurant with a menu outside in Czech. there was no english menu, nor didnt anyone speak english, so it was abit of a laugh ordering. we made it easy and just got cokes to drink, and someone read part of the menu to us “ pork?, uh, mm, chicken, rice” he said while pointing. we took one of each. the pork was good, a really big meal served with a good portion of potatoes and a slab of pork fillet. the chicken and rice dish was a sort of tomato curry with rice. and it was only 2 a meal. bargin!
we followed the signs to a campsite in Prague, as we had a bag of wet washing from breaking the washing machine at the hostel in Poland. The camp site ended up just being a row of houses down a regular street with signs out the front saying they were a campsite, with a bunch of people randomly camped in their back gardens. it was well priced and our clothes got washed and dried so we were happy.
The next morning we got up and checked out the city, walking around the old town first (yep, cobbled streets, a church, some shops) stopping to see the astronomical clock, and try absenth ice cream before driving to Prague Castle. It loomed over the city on a hill, from a distance it looked fantastic, up close we couldnt help but ask “wait, isnt that a church?” 
for lunch we found a ‘medieval restaurant’ tucked down an ally way, again hilariously tacky and cheesy, with the wait stuff dressed in full costume, and the interior designed to look like an old farm house or something.It was fun though, and the food was great, plentiful, the beer was cold and the whole meal was well priced.
