OK735 – Venice (VCE) to Prague (PRG) + Marco Polo Lounge + Aparthotel Angels Andel

First time trying the Czech Republic flag carrier, this time a flight from Venice (Italy) to Prague (Czech Republic). Also, the first time to fly with ATR 72!

For the prologue, I tried using my Priority Pass from my Credit Card membership to have some relaxations before the flight. For additional information, I arrived at the airport too early and flight was delayed about 30 minutes.

This time I tried Marco Polo Lounge at Venice Airport with similar name.

Probably it’s not good idea to start the photos with toilet, so here is the ice cream at Santa Lucia Venice Station

The process at boarding gate was easy and quick. So here we go.

The ATR 72
This kind of plane is usually to serve short haul flight

No bags at the cabin, so we must leave them outdoor, the ground officer will put them into the front door

Welcome to Vaclav Havel International Airport in Prague
Rode this to the hotel

We landed at Prague about 10 PM because the delay. I also did money exchange, although in fact Euros can be accepted for daily transaction in Prague. Every shop puts the price into Czech Koruna and Euro.

I stayed at Aparthotel Angels in Andel, it took 25 minutes from Airport to Andel. In case you are curious, here are some pictures that I took before I totally messed it up (I’m sorry Miroslav, Tereza, and Zuzana, if you read this). No, I’m joking :).

Honestly, no one asked me to review this Apartment-Hotel but I love this. Everything that I needed was provided, and of course it came with a very reasonable price. One thing that I love from Prague is, everything is cheap – if I can compare to any other EU countries that I ever visited. I relieved during my late arrival at Prague, everything was smooth and as expected.
