In the city also known as the City of a Hundred Spires, we stayed at the Hotel Adeba which was a short walk from the metro station. It wasn’t in the middle of the city, so the neighbourhood was quiet. The Receptionist on duty when we arrived was very accommodating and spoke English well so it was easy to communicate with her. The room our family stayed in was just average with a fridge and big bathroom, but like Hotel Gabriel during our trip to Vienna, there was no a/c. When we requested for a fan, we were given a small one which was more like a desk fan. As for my sister and nephew, they stayed in rooms that were near the railway, so they had to endure the noise of the passing trains as they tried to sleep at night. Oh well. The food selection during breakfast was typical, so we managed to enjoy a decent meal before going out to explore Prague.
On our first evening, we walked around the neighbourhood. Since we didn’t get the chance to enter any of the churches in Vienna, we were very happy to come upon the huge Roman Catholic Church of St. Cyril and Methodius. It was amazing! We were the only ones there when we entered, so we had the chance to pray solemnly and enjoy its splendor on our own. The details and all the statues were just magnificent and we couldn’t help looking up in wonder at the grandeur of it all.
So unfortunately, we didn’t get to see all the sights we would have wanted to visit like the Dancing House, Lennon Wall, and Prague Castle. Well, at least that gives us an excuse to visit the Heart of Europe again, right? ☺
