The European overnight train service system is fantastic. The DB rail network can get me from Basel to (amongst other destinations) Berlin…Amsterdam…Copenhagen…and this time, Prague.
I heard wonderous things about Prague. Much like I’ve heard wonderous things about every major European city. While I’ve never yet been disappointed by these claims, I still remain slightly cynical: just how fantastic can one city really be? Can it really top the other cities I’ve visited?
Well, I’m not sure that Prague stands above the likes of Vienna, Berlin or Zurich…but that doesn’t mean I don’t like it. The hordes upon hordes of tourists didn’t endear me to the place, but the glorious sunshine did. If you like architecturally diverse Central European cities then you will love Prague. Goodness knows, I needed the break.
