Map of Prague
Prague is a pretty, old city, and you should take a
long weekend to see it. It is worth a trip all year
round. But after 3 or 4 days one has seen everything
(main tourist sites), even if you take your time.

How to get there (from Germany):
A flight from Cologne/Bonn is available with
German-Wings from 39,- Euros, if you are lucky, and
takes about one hour. The train costs much more and
takes 11 hours! Taking the car is at today petrol
prices not cheaper and takes longer too. The bus
from the airport to the city center takes about 1˝
hours. The damages of the flood of August 2002 are
already repaired in the center, but one can still
see them a little off the beaten track.
Like at every tourist site you have to be aware of
pick pockets, but otherwise Prague is at least as
safe as Hamburg, Berlin or Munich.
Prague is very focused on tourists and therefore
nearly everyone speaks English. So, you shouldn't
have big language problems there.
