Prague, days 1 and 2

Last week we went on a jolly jaunt to Prague. It was very nice. Sub-zero temperatures didn't slow us down one bit.


The astronomical clock tower was one of our first ports of call, just to remind us where we were.


Then a spot of dinner at Skoƙepka, where a wagon was hung from the ceiling. Disturbingly, it didn't appear to be anchored at all, but instead was free-standing on suspended rails. Scary.


A large shopping centre was soon discovered. It was very deep. Ground level only had 2 storeys, but beneath were another 3. Bonkers, and just a little vertiginous.


At a safer height above sea level, the little market between Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square is still the best place to buy tiny astronomical clocks.
