Getting to Wroclaw from Prague by my 86 year old mother

by Chuckram

My 86 year old mother and my sister are going to a wedding outside Wroclaw in Poland and they plan to go to Prague first for a few days and then to Wroclaw. I can see a train with a connection in Dresden that takes about 6.30 hours and a quicker route that seems to require about 3 changes including one train that just goes over the border from Lichkov in the Czeck republic to Miedzylesie in Poland. My mother is quiet active and game for seeing new places and happy to get away from first class travel and would love the more picturesque local train. One worry is the connections seem very tight especially the time to catch the train in Miedzylesie. Does anyone know this trip - as the next train starts in Miedzylesie does it wait for the train to cross the border?

Re: Getting to Wroclaw from Prague by my 86 year old mother

Hello,
I don´t know, when do you need to go to Wroclaw (what time - morning, evening?). At 17:44 depart a train from Pardubice to Wroclaw (without any change). You shall catch the train in Prague to Pardubice (at 15:11 or 16:11) and then change in Pardubice.
Other possibilities takes nearly 6 hours and I don´t know if the train from Miedzylesie wait. But the train at 17:44 from Pardubice is not a "super first class" and it is the same as the trains you wrote about.

I am crossing from Prague to Wroclaw as well and will take the same train schedule as you describe. I too am worried about the connection in Miedzylesie. How did that go for you, and do you have any advise/tips for me in going thru the same route? Thanks very much for you help.

Travel Tips for Prague

Ungelt (Tyn Courtyard)

by sue_stone

Although Ungelt (aka Tyn Courtyard) is located just off the Old Town Square, it was a world away….small, stylish and quiet. You will find it hiding behind the Church of our Lady before Tyn.

Lined with fabulous Baroque and Renaissance Houses, this elegant square has some good restaurants and a couple of friendly cafes. It makes a great place to relax and plan your days itinerary. We returned a couple of times to the Ebel Coffee house for their fab coffee and bagels. And check out the crazy chairs at the Art Shop.

Ungelt had such a good feel about it…so became one of my favourite things about Prague.

Nearest metro: Namesti Republiky

Third courtyard

by mardaska

As you enter the third courtyard you stand in front of the cathedral of St. Vitus. You can choose either to wait to the line to go inside the church, or to move on and visit the church later. That’s what we did since the line was endless and there are so many other things to see.

Czech is hard, but thank you is easy

by jglsongs

It will take about a day or so to acclimate yourself to the language barrier....and it is one at that. Despite tons of Americans and Brits taking over the city, there will be times when English (or German, the next safe bet) will not be spoken.

Try to learn at least a couple of words in Czech - at the very least "do you speak English/German/..." and "thank you." This really goes a long way; just thinking about a city, which in a short period of time went from a semi-sheltered Communist city to a free tourist center to a new residential destination for many Americans and Western Europeans. It's enough to make one big collective head spin.

Prague still is going through some growing pains...and it's a lot easier to make the overwhelming rush of tourism for some locals a little less...overwhelming.

See babies clambering over the Zizkov TV tower!

by CatherineReichardt

It has to be said that the TV tower in Zizkov (one of Prague's inner suburbs) is horrendous, even by the low architectural standards set by TV towers worldwide!
Built just before the fall of the Berlin Wall (at a time when I am guessing that public participation didn't feature much in the planning of strategic installations), the tower looks like a rocket on a launch pad and apparently featured at No.2 in one list of the world's ugliest buildings: well justified recognition. And, to add insult to injury, part of a Jewish cemetery was demolished to built the tower's foundations.
So, how do you go about rehabilitating such an unloved monstrosity? Easy - you get David Cerný (somewhat of a celebrity 'enfant terrible' sculptor in the Czech Republic) to affix a group of giant bronze babies onto the tower's pillars so that they appear to be using the tower as a climbing frame! These marauding infants were first installed in 2000 as a temporary arrangement, but proved so popular that they were reinstated in 2001 as a permanent fixture.
I have to declare my bias - I absolutely love them (although my brother - who actually lives in Zizkov - is somewhat scathing about their cultural merit)! The TV tower and the outline of the babies are visible from across the city, and the mere glimpse of them on the skyline makes me smile! For me, this sculpture epitomises the cultured but irrevent spirit of Prague, and I find it hard to think of another city that would have permitted this (for which many people will probably be grateful)!
I visited the TV tower early one Sunday morning during my last visit to Prague. It was midsummer, and as part of my quest to dodge fellow tourists by venturing well off the beatern track, I decided to walk (although it is easily accessible by tram from the city centre). Despite the fact that is was a swelteringly humid day, I rather enjoyed the experience of following the tram line through suburbs that tourists don't usually venture into.
Apparently the restaurant in the tower was closed in 2010, but the observation platform is still open.

Maltese Square (Maltezske Namesti)

by sue_stone

Maltezske Namesti is a small square located close to Nerudova (the main road leading up to the castle).

Untouched by time, this L shaped square is surrounded by baroque houses and was named after the Knights of Malta who established a monastery nearby.

This is one of those little 'just of the beaten track' treasures that give you a real feel for this beautiful city.

Nearest metro: Malostranska
