Day 2 in Prague, woke up to the rain. Our morning walk led us to David Cerny’s giant crawling babies outside Kampa Museum, which effectively enhanced the eerie mood. A little disturbing, yes.

Then, The Disappearing Man, a memory of what it was like to live under Communism.

Thankfully, the gloominess was wiped away by a sunny breakfast at Cafe Savoy.

Savoy breakfast (178 czk): toast, prague ham, organic Emmenthal cheese, lightly boiled egg, housemade bread, farm butter, housemade jam, nut marble cake, hot chocolate savoy.

Vltava River in winter rain: melancholy and beautiful.

Night falls. Yes, already! Day light is that short-lived here in wintry Prague.

Old Town Square, again.

Yet another installation art by David Cerny, titled “Love”. It’s a 5-meter-long golden bone suspended in air at the intersection of Dlouhá and Rybná streets. Read more about it here.

Day 2 ended with dinner at La Degustation, a one Michelin Star restaurant featuring new interpretations of Czech specialties. The 6-course dinner menu (not including a flurry of amuse bouche) is 2150 czk. An 11-course menu is also available for 3150 czk. Here are some snapshots.

Lužické hory snails, pumpkin, garlic.

Straw soup, duck, lokus wine.

Třeboň catfish, beetroot, celery.

Beef tougue, yellow pea, apple.

Dobrá Vinice Blanc de Blancs 2009.

Sea buckthorn, beer.

Day 3, coming up.
