Segways in Prague

​​

The train ride from Berlin to Prague took something like 4 hours. I almost slept the whole way, so I don't have much to say other than, 'it was a good place to nap'.

Near our hotel was the Old Town Square, where locals offered segway tours around the city. I would have loved to do that, had I not been travelling with my uncoordinated family. We took the sightseeing bus instead - I think it was cheaper to do so anyway. There are various routes you can take. We took the 3-hour one that went up to the Prague Castle (Prazsky hrad) up the hill, where there was a 30 minute stop, and around the city.

I wouldn't recommend it on a scorching hot day however, there is neither roof nor AC. We got cooked.

Creepy busker on one of the many bridges in Prague. The best-known is the 15th century Charles Bridge (Karluv Most). The 621 metres-long structure is lined with artists and buskers, baroque-style statues and trademark souvenir stands, selfie-takers and professional photobombers. It's definitely worth seeing, both in the day and in the night.

Ticket cost: depends on which exhibition you are going to see

I stumbled across this museum whilst walking along the riverbank. It's located in a small park, and it has some interesting work by this Czech artist, Vladislav Mirvald. Unfortunately, we weren't allowed to photography the work, so I found these images on Google.

If you are wondering how he did these hypnotic paintings, let me give you a hint: a compass and an impossibly steady hand.

Overall, I felt a little disappointed with the museum's content as I personally found it lacked multiculturalism. But given the fact that it collects and promotes the work of local artwork, I think it can be a good place to observe Prague's cultural assets.

What do you think of Mirvald's work?

Thanks for your time,

Mich
