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 :-)
We love to share stories. Just GO and LISTEN audio guide route with Pocket Fennec app - https://www.fennec.guide/budapest-city-walks.html
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.
Did you try Pocket Fennec - GPS Audio city guide?
Have you already visited the new route from Charles bridge to the Prague castle?
See a few shots from it. More about the app - https://www.fennec.guide/audio-guide-app.html
Pocket Fennec is not sleeping! We are going to bring you the new portion of routes.
First Fennec's audioguide route in Germany will take you to Dresden. Here you can see a few pics.
In a bundle of current photos you can find Frauenkirche in 1993.
I took that shot in early reconstruction phase of this church.
Frauenkirche was in ruins over 45 years ... Compare it to the renewed church.
Todays Dresden is fantastic city with interesting history.
See you there!
In November I decided to document atmosphere of one fall day in Prague. OK, but how to do it?
People usually don't know, that the sights in Prague are illuminated in strict order, defined by the centuries.
The buildings from 10th century are illuminated first, the younger starts later, with 3 minutes interval.
The video starts during the foggy morning. Later you can see, what was the weather, how the ships are moving around the Charles Bridge and finally there is a big moment, when the sights illumination starts.
Today I know, how to make the time lapse video in better quality, but I cannot repeat the atmosphere ;-).
Go downtown and wait for the evening light show!
Have a nice weekend!
