The Czech Republic is the more
prosperous portion of the old Czechoslovakia - they have done well
as they have joined the European Union, but Slovakia is not far
behind. We barely touched the surface a when we visited Prague -
perhaps next time we will venture further.
This is a first rate city with beautiful
buildings, lots of art and musical venues, and most importantly:
easy to visit! Their ban on cars in the downtown area makes it a
pleasure to stroll through the narrow alleys while the excellent
subways and trams system let you get anywhere you want.
English is spoken everywhere, so a visitor from the US or UK will
have no trouble spending money. We hope to see more on a
future visit. Meanwhile join us for a stroll around Prague.
