... station. We were extremely fortunate to find a nice young Czech man to help direct us to a bus stop where we could catch a bus to the main station, and use up some Czech Koruna coins in the process.

If I was more into theater, it probably would have been more interesting, but after 6 hours of touring, I was a little bored. But I will say, being able to go underneath the stage and see how they moved the sets and the trap doors was really cool.
