This week is sunny and the forecast promises even better weather for the Easter weekend. Remember that mornings are magnificent and city centre is not overcrowded. We recommend a visit of Vyšehrad for the afternoon (Prague city walks). Enjoy your weekend in Prague.
I love spring, longer days, warmer weather and sun.
But now is February, no sun, only clouds and snow.
Let's forget the cold weather and enjoy the beautiful evening atmosphere of winter days. Enjoy your city walks and try some of our routes - https://www.fennec.guide/prague-city-walks.html.
Morning is the best time to stroll around the city. Decide, if you want to take a pictures or listen interesting stories using your personal audio guide. There is a great atmosphere and just a few people around.

Have you ever visited Buda Castle?
You would see there a Turkish tombstone, a turban of white stone. It is a remembrance of the last Turkish pasha who was killed at the age of 70 in a battle with a Christian army lead by Prince Eugene of Savoy. The inscription on the tombstone says: “He was a brave opponent. Rest in peace.”
You can also find King Stephen I of Hungary, István in Hungarian. He was born around 969 and died in 1038. He was a ruler of Hungary from the Árpád dynasty and the founder of the state of Hungary; he was in power for 41 long years, an incredible period of reign at the time.
Will you find statue of mythic bird Turul? Could help you, that rook is an emblem of King Matthias Corvinus :-)

Later you can walk around the Budapest and find a huge number of statues - Shoes on the riverbank - the holocaust memorial, Little Princess, Ronald Reagan etc. Don't miss pretty small details like worm on the wall above the river.
First green leaves appeared on the trees in Prague, sun was shining and more tourists arrived to the city. How they explored it? Some of them just walked around the centre. Others read in their guidebooks.

The year 2017 was announced by Czech Tourism agency as the year of Czech Baroque.
Here is very good opportunity to celebrate as many of these urbanistic jewels are on UNESCO list.
The baroque influenced Czech architecture, visual art, literature, theatre and music and gave rise to sacral buildings as well as palaces and chateaux that changed the fact of Czech towns and villages. Pocket Fennec is going to keep this on focus all year around.
Where to start? Let us go to the northern east Bohemia and introduce you newly reconstructed former baroque spa and hospital Kuks. The interiors and exteriors were decorated with sculptures by Matthias Braun, the most famous of which are the virtues and vices. In the forrest nearby this location is another very unique spot: Braun's nativity scene, set of sculptures so called Bethlehem.
About 40 km from here another genius Christoph Dientzenhofer and his son, Kilian Ignaz expressed their vision into baroque architecture masterpiece – Benedictine monastery with Church of St. Adalbert in Broumov and several churches scattered within this county.
