After an 8 hour flight from New York, we arrived in Prague this morning. We are staying in a beautiful apartment right near the National Museum (check out the view!).
Once we had stocked up on groceries, Mom and I hit the streets to find Bethlehem Chapel, the famous church of Czech Protestant reformer Jan Hus (1371-1415). Beforehand, we grabbed lunch at "U červené židle" (The Red Chair) Choco Cafe, and I was able to enjoy the Czech cola "Kofola"!
We then toured Bethlehem Chapel and were able to relive a lot of Czech history in an important (and controversial) building. Afterwards, we planned on heading straight back to our apartment, but ended up making two stops along the way. First, we stumbled upon an old sheet music shop right in Wenceslaus Square and bought several scores published during the Communist era. Then, we stopped by the Hotel Beránek to get a few "Beránek Beers".
But now, I hope to catch up on some sleep. Ahoj!
