A flight of just over one hour from Eindhoven made Prague an ideal destination for a five days city break. After check-in at the Post Hostel I started to wander around in the direction of the Old Town. I joined a free walking tour to get informed about the history of Prague and Czech. The tour took me through the Old Town and the Jewish quarter Josefov. These areas are packed with tourists, especially around the astronomic clock. After the tour I watched the night fall over the river Moldau. A full moon lighted the Charles Bridge and gave a magical vibe to the city.
Next day I participated in an alternative tour that took me to Zizkov neighbourhood. The guide gave a lot of interesting information about minorities in Prague. We ended the tour at an abandoned railway station that nowadays had a bar inside.
The combination of historic places and the places with modern art never bored me during my stay. Wandering the medieval streets to the Prague Castle was easily switched to viewing the art of David Cerny and the John Lennon Wall. The several parks were perfect to rest the legs after all the walking. I grabbed some beers at the beergartens and I enjoyed the amazing views.
Ofcourse the famous Czech beers were consumed more then once. I skipped the pub-crawls and booz-cruises. Though I loved the drinking at the sunsets with the other hostel guest and going to some local clubs recommended by the hostel-crew.
