The long weekend trips are still happening, this time to Prague in the Czech Republic. This is a beautiful city as it was not seriously damaged during WWII although it was badly affected by the August 2002 floods.

Wenceslas Square. This is one of the main city squares (although it is more of a boulevard than a square). It has lots of eating and drinking spots and is a great place to watch the world go by.

The Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) is another interesting place to see the sights. Sights here include the memorial to Jan Hus and The Church of our Lady before Týn (Kostel Matky Boží před Týnem).
