I visited Prague last November and I look back now at my hesitations of visitng the city and being so clueless. It turned out to be such a great trip...I really did very little advance preparations and it worked out just fine. We did the walking tour to get oriented, had dinner at Kampa Park as well as little pubs..enjoying both equally, went to the Opera, marionette theater..walked our legs off..and drank lots of beer. Never met a rude person. Enjoy this Fairy Tale of a city. Now I am on the S. Africa forum planning my safari trip this November....keep traveling everyone...do not be afraid. Cheers!
