Reaching out. Prague
« on: January 30, 2019, 06:41:37 AM »

I was sent out to Prague on Monday to do four days work on European Truck Simulator.

Finished this morning.

So I have two full days to kill in Prague. I don't want to spend 48 hours drinking myself into oblivion, so I am reaching out.

Anyone know any good aircraft related things I can do?

A quick google search has left me with nothing other than massages and craft beer tours.

Both sound interesting, but not what I really want to spend my time doing.

Any help gratefully received.

Cheers guys.

I Know it's boring and..what the heck does an American care about the Thirty Years War? Right?
If I was stuck there, I might see if I could get out to the battlefield at White Mountain (Bila Hora ) and walk the ground a little.
A big ass battle took place there between Bohemian Protestants and The Catholic League and it started the whole mess.. :)

What about air museum Kbely in Letnany?

Are you sure it's open in the winter season as well?  ;)

Sorry, I overlooked that it is open only from May to October.

The things I have scene that are open....

  • A bar on wheels you have to pedal as you drink. I dread to think how you go to the toilet.
  • Lot's of beautiful, old, open topped cars available for city tours. It was -8 last night. Open topped cars???
  • Craft beer tours. Which basically means you go to a bar and drink yourself comatose.
  • Organised pub crawls. !!!!
  • Sky diving

The last one peaked my interest, but my work contract doesn't allow me to jump out of aircraft anymore.

Well in the end I decided just to do some coding on my flight simulator.

All objects are created from components. So I have a game object editor which links all these components together to create a game object.

My old one was a winforms application with all drawing done by GDI, so it was slow and awkward.

I completely rewrote it as a WPF application, though I hate WPF, it is good for things like this.

I have a video up so you can see what I mean

Prague is nice, I love the flair. In my youth I spent several vacations there 1985-2005.
Prague kept it's atmosphere next to Plzen, real Bohemia, I just love it, nature, history,
cool people. And most important, Knedel,
Although not of big Help I can just assist in Graffiti tourism and record store shopping.

Sparta Cigarettes, if you like it local. Hehe.
