While you’re reading this post, maybe you dressed to the nines, like as before you were going out for a drink or you think that leaving home is a catch-22 situation due to the coronavirus or you give fifty-fifty chance to travel in summer again. Or maybe I’m wrong, and all these numbers are hints for various places in Prague. Let’s start with 22.
In 1916 Franz Kafka lived a few months together with his sister in Golden Lane Number 22. He was fascinated by the quiet neighbourhood, which was far away from the crowds of the city those days. Even he wrote a letter to his fiance, expressing his joy how he can directly step foot on the snow (source).
While residing in Golden Lane with rent only for 20 Crowns, Franz Kafka wrote his book The Country Doctor. Get ready for the melancholy, because I found an animation of the book on Youtube:
It is the number of stairs that you need to climb for a spectacular Prague view. On a clear day, you can easily select the Prague landmarks from Petřín Lookout Tower. The metal structure of the tower inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. I strongly recommend spending a half-day in Petřín Gardens.
During April and September, the tower is operating from 10 am to 10 pm. There is also an elevator inside, and the admission is 150 CZK. Take a look at this link for up-to-date information.
If you already missed Prague a lot, check out this link for the panoramic view:
This is the line number of the historical tram. It was in use between 1908 and 1942. If you visit Prague from April to November, don’t forget to take a tour with the historical tram. The tram ticket is 35 CZK and here’s the timetables for Tram 41.
50 cm is the width of the narrowest street in Prague, and surprisingly there are traffic lights. A restaurant located at the end of the road. The narrowest street is very close to the Kafka Museum.
9 is the century in which Prague Castle was build-up by the Přemysl Dynasty. The castle which was consisting of a palace and small monasteries expanded in centuries and became one of the biggest castles in the world with 70.000 m2 floor area.
Stay curious until the next post,
