  1. Thanks a lot for recommending seeing this place next time we’re in Prague. We do love street art and so far our favorite was in Brussels (Cez’s choice) and Melbourne (mine). Prague looks amazing and I still don’t know how we could miss this area! Greetings from Gdańsk 🙂

    • Hi Agness, nice to read from you again! Prague is one of the few cities that people never just visit once 😉 We’re keeping up with your Poland travels. Maybe that’s on our agenda for the next summer! Greets back from Kotor, Montenegro! 🙂
