I Believe in Magic

Brunch at Obecni dum (Municipal House)
Charles Bridge
My university
Old Town Square
Red is the color of Christmas
The end of 2014 was magical for me. I'm a lucky girl that had the best of both worlds: cold Christmas in Prague and warm New Year's getaway in Thailand. 
I've always loved Christmas time because I enjoy everything that time of the year is associated with in our family. We don't do those things like stressing about cleaning up the whole household, visiting the forgotten and estranged family members, etc. What we do though is we decorate the apartment, buy an amazing tree, bake the traditional Czech sweets and indulge in lots of champagne and the most delicious food. We have a tradition of coming to the Municipal House for Christmas brunch and I can tell you I cannot imagine any better tradition :). I'm obsessed with Art Nouveau and this interior is just spot on. No wonder there are quite a few movies that feature this landmark (I Served the King of England, XxX …). 
I always make sure I have time to see a new play or ballet or visit some exhibition in Prague and this time we went to Museum Kampa and Gallery of Art Prague at Old Town Square. Both places featured one of my favorites: Andy Warhol. I think both are worth the visit so if you are planning a trip to Prague you know where to go.
Konec roku 2014 pro me byl uplne kouzelny. Mam to stesti, ze jsem si uzila to nejlepsi z obou svetu: zimni Prahu a Vanoce a teplo v thajskem raji, kde jsem oslavila Silvestra. 
Vzdycky jsem milovala Vanoce, protoze mam rada vsechno s nimi spojene v nasi rodine. Nastesti nedelame ani sileny uklid cele domacnosti ani neobjizdime vzdalene a opomijene pribuzenstvo. Co ale vydzy delame je vyzdoba bytu, koupe uzasneho stromecku, peceni tradicniho cukrovi a popijeni hodne sampanskeho v kombinaci s nejlepsim jidlem. Mame take jednu specifickou tradici, chodime do Obecniho domu na vanocni brunch. Jen tezko si dokazu predstavit lepsi zvyk :). Jsem milovnice Art Nouveau stylu a Obecnak je takovy masterpiece, ze. Nedivim se, ze tam bylo natoceno tolik filmu (Obsluhoval jsem anglickeho krale, Triple X a dalsi). 
Vzdy si v Praze udelam cas na kulturu, zkousim nove hry nebo balet, popripade projdu vystavy. Tentokrat jsme zasly do Muzea Kampa a Galerie Umeni Praha na Staromaku. Obe mista vystavovala dila meho oblibence Andyho Warhola.
