My trip to Prague - Czech Republic

I was in Prague for 3 days this past December and I had a fairly nice time overall. I was a bit disappointed by the complete lack of snow, but at least it did not rain while I was there.

I found Prague airport to be quite good and efficient, I had not problems with the currency exchange people as they were fairly honest and did not rip me off unlike in Poland. The transportation to the city was also good as there is a van which will take you for CZK 120 ($6) which is quite cheap

I was supposed to stay at the ibis hotel but since they were full they upgraded me to a 4 star hotel next door Hotel century old town and that was good.

Prague unfortunately has too many tourists and that usually really puts me off from visiting a city (that is why you will never see me in Venice or anywhere in Spain)

The city in itself is beautiful and there are plenty of places to see to keep you busy for a few days or more.

I know what you mean, but we're all some kind of tourist. I prefer less touristic places too, but plenty of tourists means there's a lot to see and do. So I have to visit overcrowded and overrated cities now and than.
After 15 years I will revisit Prague this summer, but this time with my family. And I must admit I'm looking forward to it, allthough I spent a whole week there in the ninetees.

And by the way, not every single town in Spain is touristic. There are dozens of beautiful places where the atmosphere is relaxed and people are friendly.

Yep. Specially on inner Spain there are not really big concentrations of tourists despite that those areas are also quite visited..

Btw, I'd go to Prague with or without tourists around.

fantatic pics of Prague. As for Venice I know it has some parts that have so many tourists that it is like hell on earth but most of the city is deserted. Most tourists to Venice are idiots and never go beyond the obvoius leaving the rest of the place quieter. Im sure prague must be the same!
