While Prague is the reason that most people visit the Czech Republic, we only spent a single afternoon in the city. We stayed an hour south of Prague in a city called Strakonice, with our family. We had to drive in to the city to pick my mum up from the airport one afternoon and decided to take the underground downtown and walk around for a few hours. While it was very beautiful and very clean, it was incredibly crowded. When I eventually go back to Prague, I plan to go on the off season and get up very early every morning to avoid the overwhelming mass of tourists that flood the city. Despite the crowds, it was beautiful day and we had a great time.
