... br> vowels. It was also a city greatly affected during World War II, being one of the first victims to Hitler's Nazi regime. It is said that the entire city was going to be set up to be a museum to the “extinct” Jewish race.
After a short bus ride from Berlin, we arrived at the Plus Prague hostel, probably one of the nicer hostels we've stayed in. With the warm weather rolling in, we only had ...
... people would be staying. As for us, we still had the challenge of negotiating the pubic transportation system in Prague, which although initially a bit challenging, is really a great system and fairly easy to use.
So here goes our first attempt. The first thing one must do is buy a ticket in side the metro, that conveniently works for any public transportation (bus/tram/subway). If you are lucky, ...
... synagogue, making for a very powerful reminder of the atrocities that had occurred. We walked out through the old cemetery. The cemetery holds so many bodies, that the gravestones become impossible to identify. Slabs stick out of the ground at opposing angles, and most are worn down such that they become impossible to read. It was an amazingly macabre sight, but also surprisingly peaceful.
Next we walked through the old mortuary, ...
... had dancers. Sasha showed us a dance move where you hang your head, shoulders and arms and basically give yourself whip lash! We all looked like idiots. We left at around 3am, Joanna and I on foot, and the others in a taxi. We really underestimated how far it was back to the hostel, so it was only natural to have a MacDonald’s stop halfway (free wifi, chyeah!)
Back at home, I talked to people in Australia via Viber until 5.30am. Needless to say, I was tired the next ...
... definitely pick Barcelona! Maybe it was because I spoke the language, but there was just something about Barcelona. I visited the infamous ‘Sagrada Familia’ Church, which was jaw dropping and amazing. It had so much detail on the exterior alone; my eyes were not sure what to concentrate on! There were pillars, and statues and different touches of colors through out the building. It is still under construction and its completion is expected in 2022.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAparthotel Sibelius Prague
An apartment hotel so we had a fully furnished kitchen with living area and separate bedroom. Our stay was short and we were offered a great rate - competitive with a much smaller hotel room. If you're looking for a full service hotel with concierge, lobby, bar, restaurant, gift shop, lots of staff and full facilities you'll be unhappy here. For what it is, an apartment hotel, it was great. I would happily stay here again.
