Travel Photographer | Prague | Czech Republic | Day 5

Mala´Strana, or the Little Quarter is where we spent all of our time on the 5th day.  We did a lot of walking and hiking that day.  Most notable is our hike to Petrin Hill.  I was so proud of us, because we chose to hike the hill instead of taking the tram which is 1,000 feet above sea level according to our guide book.  It was probably the steepest hike we have done in all of our travels.  You add Liam in this equation and it’s an even greater accomplishment, don’t you think?

Even though we huffed and puffed through most of the hike, there were times we enjoyed a pleasant walk through gardens and trees, and took short breaks to enjoy the fabulous views of Prague.   One particular break was  at  Petrinkske Terasy.  There, we had drinks and snacks.  I ordered their pork cracklings with lard and paired it with a bottle of Krusovice.  Good thing that we walked more throughout the day, because the small dish of pork crackling definitely can clog ones coronary artery!

We continued our hike to Petrin Observatory Tower.  Since we already had enough hiking for the day, we decided not to take on the 299 steps up to the top of the tower.  Instead, we enjoyed the attractions at the base.  The ‘bubbles’ man entertained our little one for sure.

We left the hill and took a different route towards Kampa Island.  There’s a restaurant next to the John Lennon Wall that my wife wanted to check out. The ambiance was there but nothing on the menu attracted my wife so we decided to move on.

We decided to walk back and try out the restaurant in our hotel, the Amade Restaurant.  I will say that this place is where we had the best meals in our entire Prague vacation.  Yes, I said “meals.”  We ordered room service from them again the following day.  More on that on my next blog…
