Prague Shopping and People Watching

A goal in this Prague visit is to shop for an evening dress.

In Stare Mesto, just beside the Old Town Square I discovered the shopping district with expensive signature stores, chicer than in PC Hooftstraat in Amsterdam, in ‘Parizska Street’. The main shopping street however that promises not to break your wallet is the ‘Na Prikope Street’.

The only challenge with shopping in non-Euro countries is the manual calculation of the prices. It’s quite intimidating to see four to five zero digits on the price tag but after a mental calculation which I am not always good at, I can heave a sigh of relief.

I got lucky, I found the dress I wanted. And it was the first dress I saw when I walked into this shop. The first dress I took off the hanging rack. Lucky indeed and I can now put off this task and continue to enjoy the city.

Main shopping street of Prague: Na Prikope

On Na Prikope Street there were shows featuring Czech Black Theater, and some roasted chestnuts as well.

Moi doing my fitting.

You need Czech money when you go shopping.

Later in the evening I lounged at a roadside outdoor terrace in the centre with heaters and lots of pillows! Very comfy indeed and gezellig =)

I ordered seafood (gambas) green salad with the local white cheese for dinner. The cheese was quite good so I asked the waiter what kind of cheese it was however he didn’t know its name but assured me that he will ask the chef. Well, he never came back? Bah.

This gambas and cheese salad was 4 stars out of 5.

Warm cosy ambience.

Anywho, I loved how I finished the day. Light dinner, lounging on the heated terrace and just watching the crowd pass by. Prague at night is beautiful and enchanting, and very busy as well.
