Dinner

Posted by on Jun 1, 2016 in Photos | 6 Comments

Then we had a dinner at my favorite place called “Na Výtoni”. We could go by public transport or TAXI. We decided to have a walk after 9 hours of drive it was quite good exercise. We passed nice and interesting places like the one on the next picture. Being in UK I would say it is Oxford, butit is General Faculty Hospital.

There had been many other interesting things we did and I may show them to you later. But today is another day and many other things to see. So for now, the view on people enjoying their dinner and beer as we did day ago:

    The name of the place inspired me to google it and I spent an hour reading about the history of Prague, the transport of wood at the 16th century and about the little ship that have an harbour at Na vytoni. For more info check this: https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C5%99%C3%ADvoz_C%C3%ADsa%C5%99sk%C3%A1_louka_-_Jir%C3%A1skovo_n%C3%A1m%C4%9Bst%C3%AD
    The place was an customs office where the raftsmen have to pay tax for the wood transferred to the city. The tax was 1/12 of the wood.

      Great information and thank you for sharing. I knew part of the history of this place as it is also museum and historical monument. But you extend not only mine knowledge, but all other visitors! Thanks!

    Some years ago I traveled with my son to Prague with City Night Line and stayed there a week. We still talk about the city in superlatives. The charm of an European city. The beauty of the former architecture is visible everywhere in Prague. Every place, every street breathes history. Soon we left the well-known tourist attractions and roamed by unknown streets without ever losing the road. Everywhere were historical sites and excellent restaurants, visited by local people. Although public transport was excellent we walked a lot. At the Danube we came to good conversations. Memories are often filtered. The talent of the photographer is that he himself creates the beauty filter for his lens.Clearly in these photographs!

    In Dutch these rivers are called “Moldau” (Prague) and “Donau”.
