Soak up a bit of Prague culture
I stumbled across an article on Boosh News the other day extolling the beauty of the township and it reminded me of how much the destination has to offer. I've not been there in ages but I can still recall the happy times I spent there, immersing myself in the culture and history of this diverse and wonderful place.
If you're a fan of architecture then it's definitely the region in which to be seen, as it somehow managed to escape from WWII entirely unscathed and, as a result, all the fantastic buildings - Renaissance, Baroque, Gothic, take your pick - can be found anywhere and everywhere.
And the food is a bit of a hidden marvel as well. I practically put on a stone the last time I went there and I didn't even regret it afterwards. Munch your way through pork, beef, offal, potatoes, thick and sumptuous gravy, apple strudel, fruit dumplings, kolace - you'll leave a very happy backpacker indeed.
But one of my favourite pastimes is rollerblading in Troja, a pursuit also enjoyed by Veronika Bila of Spotted By Locals who actually put me on to it in the first place. She got my attention by saying that the trails in the area are lots of fun and surrounded by gorgeous countryside.
