Unfortunately these stories have me rethinking traveling to a place with a tourist "rip-off" culture. But many of the stories were enlightening and several entertaining.

A delightful collection of essays that brought me, albeit all too briefly, to my visit to Prague last summer. Recommended to anyone traveling to Prague.

Thoroughly enjoyed these essays, especially after I had already visited and had even more context.

Read this as I planned a trip to the Czech Republic to sightsee, hike, and research my genealogy.

I read this while traveling in Prague. Although I did not get to explore the countryside while there, this book will help guide me when I return.

Well, this book actually made me not want to go to Prague! I guess I have to take into consideration that most of these essays were written in the 1990's and maybe things have changed since then.
