π 2019-10-10 01:01 in Trips

Day 1

On the first day, I went to the powder tower for a guided walking tour of old town:

the trams are cheap, frequent, and go most places you need

Day 2

The 2nd day, I got up pretty late due to partying and went to the transportation museum, which isn't a don't miss, but interesting nonetheless:





And not too far away is the local science museum: Narodni Technicke Museum (on its own page):


After the 2 museums, I went to a viewing tower by Charle's bridge for sunset pictures:








Day 3

Day #3, as soon as I managed to get up after the previous night's partying, I went to the Military Aviation Museum (on its own page)


Wen I got back, I had enough time to go to the Museum of Communism which describes how communism was not a net win for the country:




Next in the museums that close late, I went to the Prague Apple Museum, which may have the best collection of Apple hardware outside of California, where there isn't a public museum:









Last for that evening, was the sex machines museum, which had a decent collection:



Day 4

Day #4, I went to Prague Castle, bright and early when it opened, and ended up spending 5H+ by doing all its museums (3 different tickets, which is a big confusing):


one of the tickets was to be able to take pictures, but for $2, that was fine enough for me

Nice view from the top of the church:

The castle also had nice gardens:


After the castle, I did a quick visit to the local Google Office


From there, I did a quick visit of Petrin Tower, a bit rushed but better than nothing. Nice views from the top of course:







After the invisible museum I went to visit on a guided tour in english, which you visit in complete darkness with a blind guide, I went to a couple of optical illusion museums:









As well as the lego museum:



nice to see the car my dad bought when we were kids

Day 5

For the 5th day, I got up as early as I could and went to Kutna Hora and Sedlec Ossuary, a bit over 1h away. Because there are only so many direct trains, I ended up taking a taxi there, which wasn't horribly expensive. Click on the link for page on that town, but here is a picture of Sedlec Ossuary:


Got back to the main train station and finished the science museum I wasn't able to finish on my first visit, and went to spend a bit mor time in town:




Day 6

On my last day, before going to the airport, I quickly climbed the new town hall for another view of the city and then went back to the powder tower I hadn't climbed yet for my last views of town before going to the airport:






And that was it for Prague. Great city, got to see most of it, although not all since I was getting up past noon due to the night parties. would be fun to go back.
