Saturday in Prague.
Ian and I took the metro out to the zoo! While it was cold and not all the animals were out, we still saw a lot. My favorites were the goats the ran up the rocky hill, the three polar bears, the penguins, the turtles and the flamingos! And mostly this baby ocelot that had just three paws! But he didn’t seem to mind, he was running around climbing on tree branches. It was cute. Ian pet one of the goats making the animals hes interactive with on this week at two total. (First the falcon!). I was not a fan of the reptile and bug section. Why do I need to see a bunch of cockroaches? Gross.
Afterwards, we walked through old town square because all of the booths they were setting up and finally opened up and it was an Easter market! There were booths of food, painted Easter eggs, other trinkets. We walked around it until the Church of Our Lady in front of Týn opened up! Ian had always wanted to go there but it is only open for a few hours like once a week and we timed it out right. It was a really beautiful church, but of course allowed no photos. I snuck one for Ian anyway because Tycho Brahe is buried there.
After that we took the metro up to Vysehrad Castle and walked around the grounds, saw the church and went into their cemetery. Which is always one of my nightmares but was actually very beautiful. We started to watch the sunset there and then decided to race time down to the Charles Bridge to see the end of it because Ian said it set behind Prague Castle. Well when we got there it was setting….but definitely not behind the castle. So, a little anti-climatic but still beautiful! We really liked watching the hockey game the next before, so we picked up food again and headed back to the hotel! I almost got use to watching hockey in another language….almost.
