Our train enters the Czech Republic near the border town of Český Těšín. An official checks my papers and stamps my ticket. We continue on through the towns of Bohumín, Přerov, Česká Třebová and Pardubice. We pull into the Prague train station in the early morning. I navigate to the Hostel DownTown 405 Kč, check in, and tour the historic sections of Prague.
I catch the ČD České dráhy train 450, car 2, seat 56 window, for €86. We depart the Praha hlavní nádraží, aka Prague main railway station, at 5:16pm, and head southwest towards the München Hauptbahnhof in Munich, Germany.
