Arrived in Prague after a slight mix up with what station in Dresden we were to get the train from, this involved a lot of running (which is not at all easy with a massive backpack!!). On first impressions Prague looks like every other city, but.....when we got exploring we realised why it is called the City of a Thousand Spires. Our hostel was great location wise and we met some really friendly people.
On our first full day we, once again, took up the offer of a free tour. It was very interesting to learn about the history of Prague but we had a slightly annoying tour guide from England but still thoroughly enjoyable. We got to see the famous Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and some churches etc!!
Rain seems to be following us around, but still we soldier on!!! Despite being really tired from all our walking about we got a tram up to the castle where the views were lovely of the city.
The next day we, along with a couple of American guys, got on the bus to visit the nearby Concentration Camp - Terezin. After surviving the bus ride of death we arrived and went on an English tour of the labour camp. We also went to the Jewish Ghetto Museum. After this rather sombre trip we then had to wait over an hour for a bus back, with a much calmer, happy driver!!
We then went out for a meal, not allowing ourselves much time to get our train!! BIG ERROR!!! Again, we ran!! Catching our overnight train just in time!! Here we had a good but slightly disturbed nights sleep. Total journey time = 12 hours!
We really loved Prague as it is very beautiful and has a lot to offer in history.
