Vitkov: The Walk Up

I actually went here (to Vitkov) in the middle of snowy January with my friend Danielle who has sadly moved back to Canada. See that post here.

As I said in that blog post, you can see the National Monument (giant horse statue on a hill near the TV tower with babies climbing up) from essentially anywhere in the center-ish of Prague.

  1. I go skating here. There’s an excellent track down below and it’s really quiet – not crowded at all. Hmmm – maybe I shouldn’t have said that.
