Day 166: Friday, 2/20/2015
I decided to get a bit of a later start today, as I had nothing planned and, to be honest, the whole traveling from city to city so quickly was wearing me out. So I decided to take it easy today. One thing I really wanted to check out was the Old Jewish Quarter of Prague. I knew the city was very rich in Jewish history and that it was something I felt I needed to see. I bought my ticket and headed to see as much as I could. Unfortunately, there was no photography allowed inside of any buildings, but it was really a meaningful experience to see everything.
I explored around the quarter and the synagogues for maybe an hour and a half. I then decided to just wander around the city. I happened upon some cool things!
I started to get a little cold so I headed back to the hostel to relax and warm up. There was a new girl in the room, and she was planning on taking the free walking tour that the hostel provided. I decided to join her, since it was my last night there. On the tour were just 2 other guys, one of whom was from California. Honza, my guide from the segway tour, lead us around Prague and he still was unable to pronounce my name. It’s not that hard, I swear!
Honza showed us a few hidden gems of the city, which was nice to discover! Here are a few pictures:
We walked around the city for about an hour before heading back to the hostel. I was thinking about doing a pub crawl, but really wasn’t feeling up to it. I ended up staying and talking with the guy from California, who’s name was Kameron. He is a music producer, and has been traveling and working in Europe for the past few months. We had such a great conversation for hours, and then realized we were both starving! We headed to a nearby restaurant and pub. I got a traditional Czech sausage and a large cider. We ate and talked until about 1am, and it was such a great time! Such a fun way to end my time in Prague.
So there you go! That was my time in Prague! I wish I’d had one more day, particularly to check out the Prague Castle. I also wish it hadn’t been so cold! But I’m sure I’ll make it back there eventually. Next stop: Vienna!
