Notes on Prague

Vee and I have just returned from a very enjoyable week in Prague. It was my 22nd visit and Vee’s 17th so we have seen most of the sights many times and now go over mainly to see our dear friends, the Horvath family, whom we have now known for almost 24 years [see my tribute to the late head of the family]. In the course of the week, we saw 13 friends and shared in the Czech Easter festivities including the notorious, but very traditional, practice of “pomlazka” (check it out!).

The weather was simply amazing. Since we’ve been to Prague so many times, we’ve visited in almost every month of the year, but I can’t remember a time when it was so warm so consistently – 22C (72F) every day. I certainly caught the sun. Prague is an eminently walkable city and as usual we walked everywhere (the record on my pedometer was 16,700 steps one day).

Although we did not do a lot of sightseeing, we still managed five exhibitions or museums. Also we went the cinema twice and the opera once. Prague is a really magical place of little cobbled streets, wonderful architecture, and endless spires and there are always new places to see and an incredible number of cultural events.
