Old Town Square
We retraced our steps to the Old Town Square looking for somewhere to eat. The Square was even busier now than earlier in the day.
I came across this decorated Vespa – impressive artwork!
White Horse Restaurant
The menus of the restaurant in the square all look tempting, but we didn’t particularly want to sit outside under the heated tents. Not so much because of the cold, but because of the amounts of cigarette smoke in all of them.
Inside the White Horse restaurant, we descended down several sets of steep stairs until we reached the basement.
We learnt that the restaurant was in the cellars of a 12th century building. This was one of the oldest buildings in Prague and is listed by UNESCO.
We ordered beers to have while we waited for our food. while we waited I explored the back of the cellar. There were other rooms, including a small mezzanine up a flight of stairs.
At the tables below us were seated a couple of groups of English visitors. While we watched they ordered bottles of red wine – this was a good idea and we added a bottle to our order.
My Royal skewer was delicious made up of sirloin steak, chicken, pork, loin, English, bacon, and onions. By now the entertainment had started and the guitarist played songs from the 70s and 80s including ones by Neil Young.
In the quiet parts he would hear all of us singing quietly along with him. This was particularly amusing, especially for him.
Back in the Old Town Square
We skipped desert and went out into the square to look for something sweet. After queuing at a crepe stall for a while, it closed before I was served. It seems 21:30 was closing up time! Luckily, another crepe stall nearby was still open. I had a blueberry crêpe. It was delicious as well as been rather large.
After our long day we made our way back to the hotel. The streets were very busy. The almost empty restaurant that we had eaten lunch was packed. The majority of shops were open as were the other restaurants as we passed by.
