The castle side is sort of like the Montmartre of Prague. Hilly, staircases, good views and super charming.
We went to Strahov Monastery, which has this interesting museum sort of thing and two amazing libraries. No pictures though, unfortunately, but have a look on Google.
Right in front of it is this amazing panoramic view of Prague.
We also visited Loreta.
As the sun set we made our way to the Petřín Lookout tower. The view from it is amazing, but going up/down is terrifying if you have an issue with heights (as we both do).
... and then my camera battery finally gave out. Good effort, though.
The next day, we visited the Jewish Quarter and visited the synagogues and museums there.
The Old Jewish Cemetery, which has 10 layers of graves as there was limited space.
Back through Old Town Square.
We started walking down the riverside.
Down to Dancing House. Apparently it was made like this to preserve the neighbouring building's view.
We sat with hot chocolates and watched the sun set.
I love the swans in the river, they're perfect for this city.
One last look at the Old Town Christmas markets.
