We had the best time talking to this couple from Canada who were backpacking through Europe. It made the four-hour train ride go by at such a nice pace. We talked and talked. We enjoyed each other's company so much that we exchanged info and decided to meet up the next night to get together. When we got off the train, it was quite jolting. The train station in Prague was beat up and graffitied, and quite frankly gross. We took a taxi to our hotel, the Intercontinental Praha. It was like night and day. We got checked in and then headed out to explore.
The hotel is right at the end of the "Parisian" street that goes to the Old Town Square. Wow! We were like, "look at that!" and "omg, look at that!". I took a ton of pictures in that first couple of hours. We ate dinner at Pravda restaurant which was very good. It was an upscale restaurant on that Parisian street, expensive, but worth it. The Old Town Square was full of people and booths like for a street fair. I guess they do that at Christmastime and Easter.
We got tickets for a concert at St. Nicholas church in the square. The Prague Brass Ensemble played. The church is beautiful. The music was nice. The only part we didn't care for was a couple of songs that just consisted of the organ (without the brass) that sounded like Count Dracula music...very dark and ominous.
We were so excited to be in this gorgeous city! It was a great start.
