  • Welcome back!

  • to Prague.

  • It's raining here in Prague!

  • Look at these tourists, hiding under an umbrella.

  • A: I've never seen a real gargoyle spout water.

  • A: That one's spouting like crazy! W: Yeh, that one's spouting like crazy...

  • And this is why, they're called gargoyles.

  • On our second day in Prague,

  • we decided to visit the castle.

  • Unfortunately,

  • it was a rainy day,

  • but,

  • when you're on holidays,

  • you need to make the most of it. No matter if it's rain, hail or shine.

  • And you know what?

  • It probably worked out for the better

  • cause there were less crowds.

  • This is the St Vitus Cathedral,

  • the largest and most important church in the Czech Republic.

  • Look how beautiful it is.

  • This church houses the tombs

  • of many Bohemian kings

  • and Holy Roman emperors.

  • Rapunzel, Rapunzel

  • let down your hair...

  • Prague castle is the largest castle in the world

  • that is stil functioning.

  • You can spend a good day here, just wandering the grounds

  • and entering some of the churches and buildings.

  • You can get some amazing views from the castle

  • of Prague.

  • And you can really see, why this city

  • is called the "City of a Thousand spires".

  • If you like Absinth, you must visit this place.

  • Look how huge their list is.

  • One of them is the "King of Spirits" and one of them is the "Beetle..."

  • This one's the Beetle one.

  • So, they look the same in terms of clarity and finish,

  • but when you smell them, they would smell different.

  • This absinth cocktail, was so delicious.

  • Can you see the beetle inside that absinth?

  • These are cauliflower pancakes

  • and then these are cheese dumplings.

  • These are some grilled sausages.

  • Beef in cream sauce.

  • Spinach.

  • Potato soup.

  • and some roasted veggies.

  • A: All done in a modern way though W: All done in a modern way

  • W: But all traditional Czech A: Yep, traditional meals

  • Things that have been here for a really long time

  • but done in a nice modern setting.

  • K: Almost like fine dining Czech-style.

  • And this was not expensive at all.

  • And we got beers!

  • You have to come to this place, it's so good!

  • We also ordered some ribs!

  • Strudel...

  • We are now walking along the Charles Bridge.

  • Which was built by Charles IV

  • who just named the bridge after himself. A: YEP!

  • Pretty much everything he did, he named after himself.

  • and then along the bridge you see all these decent sized figures.

  • Not sure if all of them are saints,

  • but then they do give blessings.

  • The local people do believe that if you touch them

  • or rub their plaque,

  • then you get blessings

  • and you will some day return to Prague.

  • St John was the one that's the most famous one,

  • he has a golden plaque that people like to rub.

  • A: So, you can see where everyone rubs them because it's like shiny still.

  • It's not really weathered at all

  • cos it gets a daily clean, I guess.

  • And I'm not too sure what the story behind most of these figures are...

  • but St John in particular,

  • what I read,

  • and if I remember correctly,

  • he was either a priest or a pastor

  • of a church

  • and then the king had actually asked him

  • to reveal to him the confessions that his wife, the queen, had made

  • to the pastor.

  • But then the pastor refused to spill all the secrets

  • and so the king got really angry

  • and was like...

  • "you're not gonna listen to me, so I'm gonna chuck you off the bridge!"

  • So he took him onto the Charles bridge

  • and threw him off

  • into the river.

  • And at that moment, as he fell into the river,

  • the clouds spread apart,

  • heavens opened up,

  • angels appeared

  • and then the stars appeared in the sky

  • and all the towns people were like

  • "Oh, he must be a saint, he's special!"

  • The palace, when you look at it, if you didn't know what you were looking at, you might think it's that tall building

  • at the top...

  • W: That's actually just the cathedral A: That is just the cathedral.

  • So the palace is everything on the hill!

  • It's the largest

  • castle in Europe

  • that is still functioning.

  • So the president lives within the palace grounds

  • and there is a flagpole there somewhere.

  • If the flag is actually up,

  • it means the president is home.

  • And if the flag isn't up

  • it means he is currently out abroad/overseas.

  • Supposedly, the locals find their president quite amusing,

  • and they always hope for him to be at home

  • because when he's not around, he's probably embarassing himself overseas.

  • We had so much fun in Prague,

  • that we decided that we would be back in Prague some day.

  • Next stop: Cesky Krumlov
