After Prague, we took a train to Dresden were we would spend two days. We had to make the most of it so when we arrived just before lunch, we just left our luggage at the hotel, went to a noodle bar and went for a walk. We had no plans and no map so we just strolled around. We ended having dinner at a typische deutsche bar (Bitte Entschuldigen Sie mein Deutsch) where we enjoyed 1 paar Münchner Weißwürste – original munich white sausages with sweet mustard and a pretzel (sorry no picture here, i was so excited I just forgot).

Dresden really surprised me and we even had time to find some gems!

These are my last pictures of our stay in Prague, taken during a walking tour, which is the best way to discover hidden gems, like the kino or the tesla radio stained glass.

I really loved Prague, it is such a vibrant city, full of history and I definitely would love to return some day. When they say Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and the Paris of the east, it is completely true.

You can see my whole set of photographs here if you’d like to see.

Astronomical clock Prague

When in Prague one should climb the famous Astronomical clock and enjoy the wonderful sights. Of course, to fully appreciate it, it is mandatory to watch the procession of the Twelve Apostles, that appear from a small trap door which opens while the skeleton of death tolls a bell. This spectacle takes place every hour, so expect the crowds (and beware of the pickpockets).

According to our tour guide, the legend says that the clockmaker was blinded on order of the Prague Councillors so he couldn’t repeat his work again – that was shocking.

Valdštejn Garden

This beautiful garden is placed close to the Palace of Wallenstein, that was built by Albrecht von Wallenstein between 1623 and 1630. He wanted to compete with the Royal Palace and its gardens, for that reason you can find exotic birds, an artificial stalactite cave and an artificial fishpond, used for small boats in the past.
It is a wonderful place to relax after a long day exploring the city, even though it closes pretty early (6pm during summer).
