An Easy Weekend In Prague - Saturday PM: Around the Old Town Square
Old Tweedy seeks out the places that have stood the test of time, that rise above the trends and the noise - the institutions - shops, cafes, bars, clothes that you know will always be around, or at least that's the hope. If this post is valid in ten, twenty years time, that's the point.
In terms of food, as well as all the multi-ethnic establishments and fast-food chains you will find in any major city, you can find places in Prague that sell traditional Czech dishes still. I like the soups where the bowl is made of bread, so you can eat it on your way down. Really delicious.
I'm a sausage fan too, who isn't? - so there is nothing nicer for me than sitting in one of the beer halls that are tucked away with a plate of grilled sausage and pickled cabbage, and a glass of Pilsner Urquell. Whenever I'm in Prague I always head for U Vejvodu. Past a shop that sells shaving brushes and Samurai swords and one called Sherlocka Holmese, I'm always grateful to see its familiar green sign. Sufficiently fortified, I later call in on the hidden gem of a pub called U Pinkasu for a nightcap.
