20th June (Sunday)
Our overnight train from Krakow arrived in Prague at 7am in the morning. We took a metro from the train station to Hostel Klub Habitat. We will be staying 2 nights in Prague. After putting our luggage, we took a stroll to Charles Bridge. The Czech Republic just had a Euro match the night before, thus most of the city are still sleeping. We walked up to Prague castle.
The main building in the castle area is St Vitus cathedral. It is a truly beautiful place, if not for the hordes of tourist in the area.
We climb up St Vitus cathedral which offers us a bird's eye view of the city.
We also visited the Prague castle history museum. In there we learnt about saints, christianity and how Prague is a cultural and educational centre of Bohemia.
We walked back down across Charles bridge and did a bit of shopping. There are lots of tourist souvenir shops and Prague hot dogs can be found pretty much everywhere.
For dinner, we just look for a place to settle down so we can also catch the Euro match between Portugal and Spain.
21st June (Monday)
We had a light breakfast before taking a train to the outskirts of Prague. There is this interesting church called the Kunta Hora. It is actually a church with its interiors entirely decorated with skulls.
A cross made of bones.
The church is located in a lovely quiet town. After having lunch there, we went back to the train station. We were just loitering around the metro when a group of officers just came up to us and ask us for our tickets. As we do not have tickets with us, we were fined on the spot. 400 Prague dollars, which is around S$50.
Thereafter we went to the museum of communism.
