The picture of Barceloneta beach above was taken on 3rd of October, and the sun is still shining! But it's not always like this. Some days can be overcast or even rainy -it's the luck of the draw. The best way to reach this amazing beach is by Metro. The nearest metro station to the beach is "Barceloneta" (Yellow Line, L4).

Old Town

(Source: Nitin's Photography)
This medieval heart of Prague bustles with tourists. No wonder — Old Town Square, the astronomical clock, the churches and the cobble stone side streets are so charming that it would almost be a crime not to walk around and soak up the history. Try to explore the narrow streets away from the center. You will meet fewer and fewer people and you will get even more carried away by the beauty of Old Town. Old Town hides plenty of Czech traditional pubs where the locals hang out. If you do not mind crowds, smoke or standing while drinking, stop by the pub U Zlatého Tygra. If you want to see the astronomical clock in action, be sure you are standing in front of Old Town Hall before the full hour.

Mistral Café

(Source: paula soler-moya)
Mistral Cafe is very popular among locals for its light and airy interior, great service and delicious food, ranging from Czech to international cuisine. Located near to Old Town Square, it provides an excellent stop for a snack or a drink any time of day. This place is family friendly and the prices are friendly, too. If you see beef steak with spinach and pepper sauce on the menu, go for it! In case the place is full and your stomach is growling, the restaurant Parlament, just opposite Mistral Cafe, is very good, too.

Letná Park

(Source: leiris202)
Letná Park is on a hillside, providing spectacular views of Prague's Old Town. It is a great place to visit especially in the summer. The locals come here in the afternoon after work to enjoy the views, drink beers, eat take-away sausages and chat with their friends. If you brought your running shoes, this is definitely the place for jogging!

Jazz Boat tour

(Source: Tjflex2)
A boat trip on the Vltava river in the evening is an excellent way to see Prague's best sights illuminated at night. The rides usually start at Dvořákovo nábřeží and go to Vyšehrad and back. There are plenty of providers to choose from. If you're not interested in organized boat trips, you can rent a paddle boat or a small boat for a reasonable price near Žofín. In summer you can stroll down to Náplavka at the river bank and mingle with locals, listen to live music, drink beers and watch the sunset behind Prague Castle.
 
With this you can call it a day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 9

The itinerary of the second day should include visits to Prague Castle (Prazsky hrad), Malostranska Beseda, Lesser Quarter (Mala Strana),  Museum Kampa and Charles Bridge (Karluv Most).

Mala Strana

Mala Strana is my favorite area of Prague. Beautiful cobble stone streets will take you to hidden gardens and palaces, while cozy restaurants and cafes will soothe your body and soul. Kampa Park offers a great deal of greenery and is a popular place for locals and students to hang out.

The most iconic place in Prague,  Charles Bridge is a beautiful stone bridge with sculptures from the 14th century, with a tower on each side. Křižovnický Square on the Old Town side is probably the most beautiful square in Prague.

Visiting the National Theater is a true cultural and artistic experience, and not only for the performance you are about to see, but because it represents the Czech will for independence.

Before 1794, the central nave was crowned with a Gothic vault, but in that year it was replaced with another vault, which in turn was replaced by a flat wooden roof in 1898. Four steps lead up to the main altar, but the crypt has been filled in. The narthex and aisles are still Gothic, but some of the other Gothic objects (like the neogothic altars by Josef Bachlehner) were added during the renovation in 1898, when also the baroque furnishings of preceding centuries were removed.

Take a walk along this superb Promenade on the shores of this beautiful lake. The walk along the front has a lake cruise at intervals of 45 mins duration. There is a variety of wag ducks, swans and grebes. The glacial waters are crystal clear. The shoreline is only 100 metres from the main street in the village if you need a refreshment
 
After this you can head back to your hotel to rest.
