The driving around and parking in the Neustadt in Dresden really took a toll on my nerves. Luckily the check in process and our whimsical room at the Lollis Homestay Hostel helped mellow me out some but then it was beer time. We checked out a couple of the many bars in the Neustadt area starting with the place right across the street, Zapfanstalt where we enjoyed a beer and some nosh. Then we took a stroll and popped into a couple of the other bars on the block. Our favorite ended up being a Big Lebowski themed bar. Very chill and very yellow.
The next morning we jumped right up and piled our stuff in the car, heading to Prague with a stop in Bastei. But first… I wanted to show my friends a few of the tourist hot spots. I was planning on just driving by, since our time was short, but I was able to find a parking spot right on the street steps from the Frauenkirche. Score! So we hopped out and took a stroll by the church and over to the castle and opera house and back along the river. What a great impromtu mini tour!
