A travel journal
to Prague by Ardin
Quote: Since I have moved to the Czech Republic, I have had many oppertunities of visiting Prague and would like to share some of them with you.
Don't be tempted by the familiar fast food places that abound near 'Museum'. The old town is full of interesting little establishments that offer better meals for a much fairer price.
The city is served by a three line metro system, charming trams that are the only traffic in many areas and an extensive bus system. One hour tickets are available for about 15 Kc and dayly and weekly tickets are also available. Ask at one of the tourist information points and make sure you have the correct ticket for your journey as unforgiving ticket inspectors abound.
It should go without saying that walking is by far the most pleasurable way to see the city but you can also take cruises along the Vltava and don't overlook the recreational value of sitting on a tram and watching the city pass by.
Driving in the city center is not particuarly advisable.
Bohemia Bagel also offers the opportunity to use the internet.

The camp was also used as a propoganda tool and was disguised as a sort of 'model camp' and visited by 'League of Nations' inspectors before war broke out. Guided tours explain the camp and there is also a Jewish museum in the town.
