An awesome place.  It is a very small town known for its beer.  The beer was good and you can get it locally in Most.  I got to visit a gothic style cathedral built in the 1300s.  It was really ornate inside, but I was fascinated with the architecture outside.  The flying buttresses are pretty cool.   I paid $0.50 USD to climb to the top of the bell tower. 
 
There was a bit of miscommunication here.  My chief came with me and was talking to the hostess.  The hostess walked me outside of the cathedral (my chief stayed in the cathedral) and into the bell tower.  At the bottom of the steps she started yapping at me in Czech and pointing at this door with a doorbell on it.  I haphazardly acknowledged her and acted as if I knew what she was saying.
 
It was pretty freaky up there all alone.  Everything was wooden and at times I was wondering if some of the planks would support me.  The bells were really big and I was really tempted to ring them, but I didn't.       
 
When I came down I tried to open the door that I came in through but it didn't budge.  I thought it might be stuck (it was pretty old) so I yanked on it pretty hard it wouldn't move.  Then it clicked to me that she was probably saying that I should roll through the other door, because she would lock up the original door I came through.  So I try to open the other door and boom it opens, easily.  I walk through the door and find myself in the back of the church in an area partitioned off by steel rails, with a rail door in the front.  I walk through the area staring at all the cool stuff like: fountains, old pews, an altar.  When I get to about halfway through the room the chick turned around and had a look of horror on her face.  I just kept walking and walked right out of the area.  The chick starts blabbering and flailing her hands at my chief, while I am just standing there next to him.  He starts to chuckle and says that I just walked through a sanctified area that is not supposed to be publicly accessible.  He furthermore goes on to state that I was supposed to ring the bell at the bottom of the bell tower and wait for her to come get me.  I reply that if I wasn't supposed to go in there it shouldn't be open and how was I to know what she was saying.  My chief and I just quickly left.  There is now another place on the map that Alex has successfully desecrated!        & amp; nbsp;         & amp; nbsp;
