From the Metro station we took the metro to Hvalni Nazrizi which is the main train station in Prague and also the place in which the group would transfer to a larger train that is meant to take people between cities. The train system in Europe as most people know is highly advanced and extremely efficient and this was no exception
The destination of the hike was supposed to be an old monastery that had some historical importance for the country, however, the group decided to extend the journey once we had arrived at the site. The church / monastery was significant because it was occupied by an Croatian hermet oddly enough during the 17th century. As the legend goes the hermit moved to the area from Croatia and immediately came to encounter "devil" creatures and it took the power of Saint Augustine to fend off the evil creatures. After that the site had apparently became a place of refuge and pilgrimage throughout the Catholic community. Once we had taken our tour of the church we decided that we would climb the small mountain the the top vantage point where we would be able to see much of the area and the cross that had been placed there
To end the day on a perfect note the group stopped at a local restaurant / bar where I proceeded to eat an amazing Czech meal of beef soup, which warmed my soul and hands to inexplicable happiness. Followed closely by a pork steak that was incredibly scrumdidleiumptious and to wash the whole meal down and complete the day 2 tasty local brews. The best part about the whole meal aside from the warming my soul part was that it cost only a total of about 7 dollars which was incredibly cheap, assuming realistically that the same meal and set up would have cost around 20 dollars in the States. Overall, it was a very good day.
