Historic Prague 3 nights


Arrived at Prague airport and avoided the expensive city transfers by riding the “AE” express bus which I picked up at the second island/platform outside the airport exit door, you pay the driver directly 60kc.=($3.50), drop off in old town(next to the local train station). Got a great deal and stayed at the “Hilton Old Town” usually I save on hotel but this deal was too good to pass up and the hotel is in a great location. My first stop was a 3hr segway city tour http://www.segwayfun.eu/ which was terrific and gave me a good overview of the city. Next morning I went on a 25 mile city tour on ebikes (  http://www.ilikeebike.com/index.php?strana=home) another special experience,  the tour takes you all over the city and outskirts and I got to visit the ‘old soviet” built housing areas and many of the places that have yet to change. The main Prague tourist hub is “old town and the square”, the city is easy to walk but many of the streets tend to turn and change names. Visited; Prague Castle(visit this in the morning and avoid the tourist rush), many cathedrals(some where closed?), walked the famous Charles Bridge, old Jewish Cemetery(it was closed) and the lesser quarter. A fun experience was my final night as my wife made contact with a local family that provides you with a local experience from shopping to cooking a local meal at an apartment in town.. Fun evening, next morning I boarded a train and headed to Budapest(6hr train ride).
