Tapi kami x masuk pon.. memadai ambik2 gambar kat luar pon dah ok sangat dah...hahaha...



Jadual concert
Lepas jalan2 area castle, kami pun menapak turun ke bawah...menurun tak rasa sangat sebab menurun kan...hehehe...


Bila dah sampai bawah, kami x larat dah nak jalan kaki...hahaha...actually larat aja tp malasnya yang lebih.. so, kami naik metro from Malostranska to the city. X lama, kejap ja... rasanya 1 stop macam tu aja...

Underground Subway station.


Sampai dah kat old city.

In no time, we were already in the old city.

This is where we started this morning. 

We walked back to Rosemary to perform solat and rest. At night, a few of us went out to find halal food to eat. Some of them were already sleeping and didnt bother to join...hahaha... penat sangat jalan kot siang tadi...

I didnt know what happen that night but it seemed like our GPS was not working. The location of the restaurant looked so near yet we couldnt find them. We stopped and asked a few people. Lps pusing2, dah rasa nk give up, skali kami nampak tanda halal...Alhamdulillah, dapat jugak ler kita makan...heheheh....

Beberapa ketol Ini aja yang larat... hahaha....
 After dinner, we walked back to the hostel following the same route. It was drizzling and the temperature had dropped a Little bit compared to day time.

Drizzling...
 We walked for about 10 minutes tapi x terasa macam 10 minit pon... lalu bangunan-bangunan lama yang sangat cantik.... Tiba2 ada nampal street show...

This man was using glasses filled with water to make his own music. 

Overall, inilah perjalanan kami pada hari ini...



All in all, lebih kurang 5 km la kami jalan dari pagi tadi...slow2 jalan x terasa sangat.... x termasuk metro yang kami naik dari Malostranska ke Mustek.   Actually, area yang kami jalan ni hanyalah di area Praha 1... Ada 10 districts di Prague.  Basically, Praha 1 is  the home of the best known tourist attractions; many buildings in Prague 1 date back to the 13th century.

Ok, that's all for today... Esok pagi kita p Prague Morning market pulak ya...bye

Charles Bridge, Prague

Lps jalan-jalan di Old Town, kami berjalan ke Charles Bridge. Charles Bridge ni merupakan salah satu icon di Prague, selain Astronomical clock. X jauh pon dari Old Town. Tapi disebabkan kami suka berhenti2 tangkap gambar dan berhenti2 masuk kedai, maka jadi lambatlah sikit.

Berikut merupakan sedikit info tentang Charles Bridge, pasted from Wiki.

Charles Bridge is a historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century.[2] The bridge replaced the old Judith Bridge built 1158–1172 that had been badly damaged by a flood in 1342. This new bridge was originally called Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) or Prague Bridge (Pražský most) but has been "Charles Bridge" since 1870. As the only means of crossing the river Vltava (Moldau) until 1841, Charles Bridge was the most important connection between Prague Castle and the city's Old Town and adjacent areas. This "solid-land" connection made Prague important as a trade route between Eastern and Western Europe (taken from Wikipedia).

Tu dia pintu gerbang Charles Bridge. 
Masa sampai, orang dah ramai dah di sana. Kami sampai dalam pukul 11 lbh macam tu... cuaca pada waktu ni boleh tahan sejuk juga, almaklumlah tepi sungai. Tp view memang cantik, dikelilingi dengan bangunan-bangunan lama.  Sebelum crossing the bridge, kami tangkap2 gambar depan bridge tu. Ada banyak bangunan2 lama, sambil tunggu orang nak ke toilet...





Jom bergambar di jambatan...




 Atas jambatan ni pun ada ramai orang menjual-jual lukisan dan juga barang-barang kraftangan lain. Harga boleh runding. Ada juga pemuzik jalanan. Love locks pon ada....





Pemandangan Sungai Vltava  pon sangat memukau.






Lepas Charles Bridge, kita ke Prague Castle. Perjalanan agak mencabar sebab kena berjalan menaiki bukit... Beberapa pit stops jugakla kena berhenti, ambik nafas dan juga ambik gambar...;)

To be cont in the next post...byeee....!!!
