Prague: Part Three
On our second day in Prague we decided to take the metro to the other side of the river and visit the castle. The view of the city from up on the hill was stunning. We walked round the castle gardens admiring the view and headed into the cathedral. Ellie and I were in total agreement that the stained glass windows in the cathedral were some of the best we had ever seen. They were all so colourful and bright and quite different to most church windows either of us has so far seen. We spent the rest of the morning exploring the other side of the river and the Lesser Town. Ellie had been recommended a crepe place by her friend so we went in search of MLS Bistro and shared a couple of crepes. Ellie chose our savoury dish of pickled pear, goats cheese, walnuts and cranberries which was absolutely delicious. I chose our dessert dish of Nutella (obviously) banana and flaked almonds which was also yummy. We were both surprised with how big the portion sizes were as each dish came with two crepes, which suited us perfectly to share! If you're ever in Prague I would definitely recommend trying MLS Bistro. After lunch we headed back towards the Old Town going via the John Lennon Wall. In the 1980s the wall represented free-speech where young Czechs would graffiti Lennon quotes in rebellion against the Communist regime and has remained a symbol in Prague. For the rest of the afternoon we looked for gifts for family and then headed back to the hotel to try out the swimming pool in the spa downstairs. It was amazing! Unfortunately, due to the fancy mood lighting that they had, I only got really fuzzy pictures. The pool had little Jacuzzi's around the edge which led into the main pool itself which was lovely and relaxing. Ellie and I were both feeling rather lazy after our swim so had a google for good places to eat near the hotel. We ended up at Meat and Greet which specializes in burgers and was delicious. I had the chicken burger with peppers and Ellie had the burger with apple and brie which looked amazing (but I failed to take a picture of). We liked it so much that we ended up there for lunch on our last day too! I would definitely recommend Meat and Greet if you're there, and try the pork burger with beans, sooo good!
