From there we visited the building, Loreta; an important pilgrimage site, built to promote the legend of Santa Casa and we also walked around St. Nicholas Church at Malostranske Namesti. It is the largest of Prague's churches founded by the Jesuits. Construction began in 1703 and is the masterpiece of Christoph and Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer.

From there we headed towards and up Petrin Hill towards the Observation Tower, which has the best views of Prague. It was a good walk and then an uphill stair climb but it was worth it. Did I mention that it was probably only about 2 degrees...

Once up the top, most of the city was covered in a fog so we decided not to pay to climb up the 299 steps of the Observation Tower.

We decided to take the downhill train back towards the town but as we only had what they considered large notes we had to head back to the Observation Tower Cafe and get some change. As no one there really spoke english we decided it easier to buy a drink and snack priced so we would get the correct change we needed rather then try and get them to understand what we needed. Plus it was nice to have a sit-down.

Armed with the correct change, we bought tickets to catch the next downhill train ride, then a walk through Lesser Town, across a bridge (with views of Charles Bridge), had lunch at a small cafe near our hotel, then back to the hotel for a nap before heading into Wenceslas Square to catch up with Todd & Jaz for dinner.

That night we caught up with Todd & Jaz and we walked to nice traditional restaurant where Matt and I got to enjoy some traditional goulash (a very popular dish in Prague). We had a great time catching up.

And that brings us to the end of Day 2
