Another request met


So Ali wanted a posting of some of the signs around here. Now there should be a disclaimer about this sign though since it is from Prague, which Tom has appropriately nicknamed "the Disney World of the Czech Republic" because many people speak English and it's quite easy to navigate (kinda like the World Expo at Disney World apparantely). Also, from reading one of the guidebooks we picked up some Czech words which make it very to figure out landmarks and such. Narodni is national (muzeum is as obvious as it looks), Hlavni means main or central so there are many Hlavni Nadrazi (Main Station) and in this sign a Main Post Office. Nove, means new and mesto is town so Novemestska Radnice is New Town Hall.

Thanks for posting that! It's true that Prauge signage is exceptionally helpful, unlike some of the signs in rural Polish train stations . . . Mom and I were talking last night and we want pictures of the metro too, so people can see the "real life" side of things amidst all the pretty architecture. Please?

Uh, there's no metro in Brno. Sorry Pup!

I think she means the train station. That place does have its scary moments

well when I'm back in Prague I'll be happy to walk around in the sketchy, creepy part and take lots of pictures. I do actually want a picture of that SUPER long escalator
