Minimoon in Prague

What’s a minimoon I hear you say, well it’s for those who want a few days away after a wedding but either don’t have the time off, the money or the weather is not right in their dream destination so they have a few nights away after the wedding and then wait until the time is right for the Honeymoon. For Anthony and I we had two of the above, not enough time off and we needed to save a bit more for spending money. After our special day we did not just want to come home, so the day after our wedding we set off to Prague. I booked BA flights from Heathrow and I’d arranged a car to pick us up on the other side which was all seamless. We arrived at the wonderful Mark Luxury Hotel, from the minute we arrived the staff and service was first class, this was maintained throughout the whole of our stay. Our room was perfect, a great size with a small kitchenette, a living room that lead on to the bedroom which then went on to a bathroom. All very spacious. The hotel it’s self is in the old town and only a 5 minute walk from the Old Town Square and astronomical clock. We literally arrived at the hotel, had some room service and went to bed. I think the day before had finally caught up with us, the next day we woke up and was ready to explore. We started off walking to the Old Square and arrived just in time to see the astronomical clock chime on the hour, we then headed towards Charles Bridge via a few shops. Shopping is great in Prague although Anthony did not seem to keen. Arriving at Charles Bridge and you can see why it is such an attraction, not only with the history and being a pedestrian bridge but also its gothic beauty and views of the city and castle. As we crossed to the other side we went up the high tower and got to see the city at a different angle. The word I used the most that day was beautiful, it just is beautiful, the prettiest city I have been to. We then took to walking all the way to the castle to again look at the views on the way back down we went via a few watering holes and shops. That evening we went to Le Degustation Restaurant which has 1 Michelin Star and it was a wonderful experience, we had the 11 courses with matching wine. Anthony being a chef takes from it very differently than what I do but I had a great meal and got tipsy…hahaha! The next day we had a relaxing morning before a river cruise in the afternoon which was very nice, again we saw the city from a different angle and at a nice slow pace. We took a walk back to the hotel before the Ghost Tour that I was really looking forward to as something a little bit different, I actually got the tour free with my Avios points and was really glad I did because it did not live up to the ghost tour advertised. Firstly when we arrived at the meeting point Anthony and I were the only two booked on the tour and after 40 minutes of a very dull history tour and not one ghost story shared Anthony and I thanked the guide for their time and ducked out of the remanding 2 hours and 20 minute left. We instead finished the evening with a few drinks in a lovely local bar… Now it’s a great story to tell everyone and we laugh about it but I might think twice before booking experiences with Avios again. All in all it was a lovely minimoon/city break and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted a lovely time away be it romantic, historic, shopping or even stag or hen do’s. Prauge itself is very pretty, extremely clean and everyone we met was lovely.
