EUROPE 2013 - Part 2 (Prague, Cesky Krumlov)

Day 3
Arrived Praha Hlavni Nadrazi at 1126hrs and straight away checked-in at Falkensteiner Hotel Maria Prag (EUR109/night with breakfast)  which is only 100 meters from the train station. Would recommend this hotel as it is near the train station and the service is very good. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. Free Wi-Fi is fast. Immediately after checking-in went out and changed the currency to Czech Koruna (CZK). CZK10 = RM1.71. Then straight away went to Wenceslas Square.

Had lunch at Hallal Fast Food which was very near the hotel. Turn right from the hotel entrance and walk about 50 meters on the cobblestone street. Food was delicious especially the Chicken Biryani and Chicken Curry.

After lunch headed back to the hotel for rest and forty winks. In the evening walked to Wenceslas Square again to witness the night activity there.

Day 4
Joined the Great Sightseeing Tour + Prague Castel + Charles Bridge on my second day in Prague. Booked this tour online from Premiant City Tour (CZK675). Was picked up on time at 9.00 am from the hotel and transferred to the meeting point before proceeding for the tour. This package also includes a walking tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny at times. Overall it's entertaining and quite exhaustive as you have to walk back from Prague Castle and Charles Bridge to the original meeting point.

Day 5
Today I went to Český Krumlov. It's a small city in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic where Český Krumlov Castle is located. Old Český Krumlov is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This tour was also booked online from Premiant City Tour for CZK1,890. Was picked up from the hotel and traveled by van to Český Krumlov. Price includes lunch and entrance fees to Český Krumlov Castle. Took some photos along the way.

Day 6
On my last day in Prague, I went to the Fashion Arena Outlet by train. Took the Metro green line A from Praha Hlavni Nadrazi to Depo Hostivar. Then took the complimentary bus to the outlet.
