I arrived in Prague mid afternoon on what was a clear and rare sunny day for Prague in January. I checked in at the gorgeous Miss Sophie’s Hotel and then headed up to the castle, in case the weather for the rest of my trip didn’t hold up I wanted to make sure I got to see a sunset over the city.
I was worried that the sky wouldn’t deepen but the longer I waited the more colour it got.
Until the whole sky was beautiful purple hue against the red rooftops of Prague
When I ventured back into the castle grounds the sunset was even better
I wandered around chasing the sunset until it was dark. Prague is just as beautiful at night as it is during the day.
I headed back to my hotel to get ready for a traditional Czech dinner at Hajnovka before settling into my room for the night.
Fortunately it was another clear day. I could see how sunny it was out my windows
So I headed down the beautiful staircase to breakfast which is actually at Miss Sophie’s Hotels sister the hostel across the road.
Before heading out for a day exploring the Old Town of Prague.
There were beautiful colourful buildings everywhere I looked.
Old town square was beautiful in the sunlight.
The powder towers also shouldn’t be missed.
While wandering around I found this gorgeous door. So I obviously pretended it was my own house. (A moment after this photo was taken a person came out.)
To end the day I headed back to old town square to check out the rooftops of Prague.
Before the snow started coming down.
The snow made Prague look like a fairy tale town. Almost making the -11 temperatures worthwhile.
