I spent my Easter holiday in Praga across boutiques, meeting places and elegant monuments.
I did not follow dear friends, the Czech Easter tradition, which provides that the youths give some propitiatory lashes, that bring youth and vigor with plaited willow (pomlázka) on the legs of the girls, which reciprocate by donating them same beautiful hand painted eggs (Kraslice) that I have instead hung , with goliardic spirit, to my pink Chevre leather Kelly 28.
Prague is a very interesting city, starting from the most ancient Charles Bridge with its magnificent statues, to the Powder Gate, and to visit then the Old Town Square, getting lost in the Easter markets, waiting for the chimes of the famous Astronomical Clock.
I could also do shopping in Parizska, the way of the big brands. Here I recommend a jump from Hermès, where Lukas, a young shop Czech assistant will help you in your choices with much sympathy. For lovers of vintage, Prague also offers the opportunity to indulge in the various antique shops in the Jewish quarter near the Maiselova; and yet I mark you a cute store where you can find vintage Chanel bags and jackets called “Galerie Michalska”.
In my journey I was not alone; with me there were two dear friends, Veronica Tejkalova Dolmatova, she is Russian but moved for years in the Czech Republic, was one of the most popular marketing guidelines of Marie Claire for the East and with her the blonde Ilona Simonova, Czech model with an engaging sympathy. They were my guides and they took me in the hottest restaurants in the city, from SaSaZu, a very special place, housed in an old industrial area, where you can eat excellent oriental cuisine , then massaging the shoulders and neck after a meal, all included in the final price of your dinner. After dinner, for an Easter toast, I recommend a trip to the Black Angel, an American bar, the heart of the Old City.
I hope you all had wonderful Easter daysi with those you hold most dear!
Have a good weekend,
