    Prague, Day 2

    August 23, 2016 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    This full day in Prague was fast paced with Tom acting as our guide having holidayed in the city many times previously.

    With 3-day travel passes we went from place to place via the city's wonderfully frequent tram system. The tickets even took us up the steep wooded hillside via a funicular railway to gardens in an area called Petrin overlooking the city. A miniature Eiffel tower perched atop this hill provided us with panoramic views after we scaled its 60m high spiral staircase.

    On our way back down the hill we 'happened to pass' the St Norbert brewery and so felt it would be rude not to pop in and sample the produce! Back down in the city centre Tom's expert timing brought us to the astronomical clock on the hour, at which point its many figures became animated as the bells chimed away. After a quality burger we trammed it back to the campsite and chilled outside with Poppy dog.
