From there I crossed the Charles Bridge and ascended the hill to the largest midevil castle in all of Europe. It was extensive. I have to say that I did not go in it but walked around the grounds and that alone was overwhelming. I did however go into the church that is on the grounds (becasue that was free), they started construction in the 1300's and finished in 1903 thats a long time to live around counstruction.
That night I went on a pub crawl which lasted until 7:30 in the morning
The next morning I went on a guided tour of Prague and learned all about the interesting history that it has to offer. Did you know that garnets from all around the world are mined here? Also it is true that Prague is really where WW2 started in 1938 not in 1939. Interesting factoids that I have learned that I will be bugging you with in the near future.
So thats my trip to Prague in a nutshell. I had a really great time, met some people, saw some things, ate some food, had a great time. It really is a magical city that has really touched me in a different way.
I'm off to Krakow, Poland in a few hours to take the overnight train from here.
