Flag of Czech Republic  , Bohemia,
Saturday, August 6, 2005

We took an overnight train with hard seats (not sleeper!) from Krakow in Poland to Praque in the Czech Republic. What an amazing uncomfortable but unforgettable night! We hardly slept at all with many officials boarding and checking tickets and passports, combined with very cramped conditions.

We arrived in the morning to a magic, beautiful and mystical city. The city centre is a smorgasbord of stunning architecture of all different types.

The patron saint of Czech Republic is Good King Wenceslas of the Christmas carol fame. Czech Republic has just joined the EU and the dark times of the Iron Curtain are behind them. However it is still cheap for travellers to live.

Footnote: The Historic Centre of Prague is UNESCO World Heritage listed.
