Take an interesting tour and get to know local food. Or visit Martin’s bistro for lunch, in Prague 3. And now, reappearing at the back of U Pinkasů restau, at the bottom of Wenceslas Sq is the Gothic Garden offering beer and grilled food.
Mark your calendar for 2016 – celebrating 700th birth anniversary of Charles IV of Bohemia. Missed out on Bohemia’s saint’s day this year? Your next chance is March 15, 2015. FYI, that’s John of Nepomuk. His completely over-the-top silver-encased tomb lies in St Vitus Cathedral inside the Prague Castle grounds. See my previous post for more info on the tomb and John’s somewhat dubious claim to fame.
