We traveled by train to Prague from Berlin on November 11 (Tuesday). We stayed in a cute flat in a classic building in the Vinohrady district, one block from the tram and the metro. We had tickets for the Czech State Opera a couple of hours after we arrived from Berlin, and we barely got organized in time to get there. We ended up walking to the theatre which really was not too far… maybe a 20 minute fast walk from the apartment. We had great seats (10th row center) for a very good price, and enjoyed a very well done Barber of Seville.
We spent the next couple of days just walking around the town, taking trams and the metro and enjoying the beautiful architecture. The restaurants in our neighborhood were all cute, trendy and reasonably priced. The best find of all was a restaurant called Parlament, closer to the center of town, that served real Czech food.
On Friday night we went to another opera, Rigoletto. This time we were in the third row center and enjoyed it even more. Saturday morning we left for Vienna.
