    Another excellent pictorial travel thread. My last trip there was in 2005. Attracted to similar places. I can recommend the Jewish cemetery for future visits. Not for religious purposes, but for the unusually rammed nature of it.

    Great pics again punty. I was lucky to go in the 90's and hear horror stories of it being overrun by hen and stag parties now. Its great architecture and relatively small area mean you can cover a lot without getting too knackered travelling about. Food was great, especially if its cold there.

    Great stuff Punty.

    I like this pic.




    Spend NYE 00/01 in that square.

    Drinking shots of Jagemeister and puked over me mate sitting next to me.
    In that square for NYE, lost me mates, shifted 3 chicks, drunkenly rooted a drunk, plump German lass in an alleyway, then tried to befriend 3 young Italian mafia types under that clock by talking about Francesco Totti before they told me to fuck off.

    Some good stories on the train to Budapest the next day. Will see what pics I can find.


    Will you go to that Cheskykrumlov place? And no I'm not gonna google the spelling.

    There's certainly no Italian fashionista on that tree.

    That's a state of the art Inter Milan training kit you fat slob.

    Twas expensive too, 55 or 60 quid 20 years ago. We had a good deal with our mates working in a local gas station where we'd reset the pump counters and make a few hundred quid a weekend, mostly spent on XTC and shell sui, state of the art training kits.

    Mr Punty, you are a man amongst men for your travel photo threads.
    Every time I see the great INXS video of Never tear us apart that was shot in Prague brings back great memories of the place.

    Even though being outraged that time as all other world, after all and after time distance, it has to be admitted that there are always double standard views on different events.

    Could such situations be seen at other invasions (as mentioned above?):

    Speaking of such, we went to Terezin concentration camp in the North of the country.

    No comments really needed about what it's like. Worth going to, if never been to one before.

    Hi Punty - great thread again. Thanks for sharing.

    I went Estonia last year - my first ever sojourn into what was the old Eastern Europe. Was highly impressed. Food everywhere was great -good booze everywhere and people were generally friendly and helpful. Much of the main part of the town was "Soviet drab", but the old town was pretty cool.

    Will definitely look for opportunities to visit that part of the world again.
