Philipp and I in front of Prague Castle.
''Magic, golden, mystical Prague...´´ The tourist brochures go into overload when describing the Czech capital, but the city lives up to its hype. Prague is a maze of medieval lanes to explore, beautiful parks, awesome bars and clubs, rock venues, museums and art galleries galore.
Most backpackers say you need four days in Prague-- three for doing everything and one for recovering from everything you do!
Prague´s number one attraction is the Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge. During the summer the Charles Bridge is one of the most crowded places in Prague and you literally need to push your way through the tourist crowds. The Stare Mesto (old town) holds the cities most historical buildings including the Staromestskenam, the Tyn Church, St Nicholas Church, and the Jan Hus Monument.
In Nove Mesto (new town) we strolled through Wenceslas Square and did some shopping. The square is traditionally the site for most public gatherings and demonstrations. In the middle of the square a statue honors the victims of communism, including two students who burned themselves alive in 1969 in protest of the Soviet invasion.
We partied two nights in a row at Club Radost FX, Prague´s most
Here I am in front of the Charles Bridge.
stylish club for R&B and house. We met a lot of really interesting people from all over the world. The club was packed with travelers and English was the language of choice.
