Prague is packed! August 16, 2006Posted by Amanda in Travel Diary.
I really have to stop using alliteration in my subject headings!
Yesterday we arrived in Prague and wandered down to the main square. Last time we were here it was winter and therefore very quiet. This time Chris described it as being like the Ekka. We could hardly walk through the crowds (and the chanting Hare Krishna strangely). I don’t know that I have ever seen so many tourists in one place.
But the great thing about tourists is that they usually stick to the touristy streets. And in Prague if you plunge into the small streets that run off the main ones, there are very few people and the buildings are still beautiful.
We had a great Czech meal of dumplings, schnitzel and goulash and are very glad we came back to see if we liked the city more than last time when we were in a fog of jet lag.
