Itinerary of today:
Dinner @Kolkovna Palac Savarin
Arrived at Prague at around 1:30p.m. Immediately we looked for the counter selling bus + train tickets to the city. (32 kc) As the exchange rate in the airport was extremely unreasonable, we decided to pay via credit card and exchange money in the city. And we found our decision very right!
|Bus 100 to Zlicin Station|
|Train to Florenc Station|
As we were joining another couple during the first half of our trip, we searched for a cheap apartment online. That's David's Apartment. With a 2-bedroom apartment, it only cost 4500 kc for 2 nights. It was just right next to the metro station Florenc, which was hassle free and convenient.
David's apartment is an old building with a very cute lift which can only take 4 people at a time. But the facilities inside were in good condition. There was an open kitchen with microwave oven. We could buy some food for supper and breakfast.

Since we missed our flight, we only got half day staying there in Prague. So we only visited Prague Castle. We took the train there. We were staving and bought a slice of big pizza at the metro station before we walked to the castle. (29 kc)
It was rainy and cold. We spent half an hour staying in the museum next to the castle to wait until the rain stopped. As it was already very late, we just toured around the Prague Castle but didn't manage to get inside. What ashamed.
As it was too cold and we didn't got enough clothes, we gave up our sight seeing (We didn't even visit the Old Town, the New Town and the Charles Bridge!!!! Gosh!) We took a tram to join our friends for dinner. And this is the restaurant I found online recommended by many bloggers. That's the Radnicni Sklipek. It took us quite a long time to get there as we were not familiar with the transport. But when we arrived at there, we were both very happy with it as the interior looked absolutely inviting.
The most famous dish is pork knuckle. It was big enough for 2 to share. We ordered 2 pork knuckles and 5 more dishes including mixed veggie, onion rings, potatoes and 2 desserts. We also ordered a big glass of draft beer and a cup of hot chocolate. And you know what? It was only 800 kc in total! Eating in Prague was much cheaper than we could imagine!
