Prague, Czech Republic

Though the hilly topography of the Czech Republic's capital might scare off some participants, multiple VirtualTourist members suggested exploring Prague by bicycle. Many tours originate in the Old Town, giving riders the opportunity to cruise along the Vltava River and see both the Charles Bridge and Frank Gehry's Dancing House. The opposite side of the river, the Mala Strana, has more legitimately marked bicycle paths, particularly near Prague Castle and Letna Park. For the more ambitious rider, one can cycle the Prague Vienna Greenways from Prague to Austria, with the opportunity of detouring and seeing the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORGOV0000249" title="UNESCO" href="/topic/crime-law-justice/unesco-ORGOV0000249.topic">UNESCO</a> site of Cesky Krumlov. If both of these plans sound too difficult, another Virtual Tourist member had a great experience with renting an electric bike, since the motor helped make the hills of Prague much less intimidating.
