See Prague by rollerblade
This is certainly an idea that appeals to me – what better combination can there be than seeing some new and interesting countryside while getting some exercise? And not just any exercise – a bit of rollerblading to boot. Now, some naysayers may decry this, stating that you can't rollerblade on grass or slightly rougher terrain than tarmac but I believe it's worth a try so go on, book that hostel in Prague, as one resident in the area has said she enjoys doing just that.

According to Veronika Bila, writing about her hometown in Spotted By Locals, she heads to a region called Troja, which isn't very far at all from Kobylisy and is her destination of choice for rollerblading when the sun is shining.

She did say that, for those who are feeling slightly less adventurous, there are lots of parks in Prague that are specifically designed to accommodate rollerblading fans but she also noted that going round and around in a circle can grow tiring after a few rotations.

"You can find a trail like there is in Troja that goes alongside the river and while you're enjoying your ride (trying not to fall in my case), you can also admire the beautiful countryside," Veronika said.

If you're taken by this idea and want to head to Troja immediately, get on tram 14 and disembark at Trojska.

Opting for rollerblades could certainly be a safer choice than hopping in a Prague taxi to get around and about. According to Rick Steves of Tribune Media Services, these can't always be trusted not to charge you through the veritable nose to get to your destination.
