The capital city of the Czech Republic Prague is often referred to as the “City of a Thousand Spires”. But Prague is not only famous for its architecture, it is also world famous for its beer! A tour here offers a wonderful blend of sightseeing and culture, with pub crawls, brewery tours and nightlife. Strathclyde University sounded like they most the most of all the city had to offer when they spent 5 nights there on a hockey tour!
Strathclyde had decided to travel by coach to Prague, this can often help to keep tour prices down and is a nice social journey with some good songs and tour traditions. They arrived at around 7.30 on Saturday evening and that that night to explore some of the local bars and clubs.
The team had the morning off to explore Prague (and recover from the night before).In the afternoon it was their first fixture of the tour; two games against Prague International Hockey Club! This was a tough encounter, but one which all the players enjoyed. Both the boys and girls teams lost, 4-3 and 6-2 respectively. But the facilities were described as “incredible!” with a club house and bar that the players made the most of! The opposition hosted them fantastically and all made an effort to stay and socialise long after the game.
The next day was similar with the morning to explore the city! Prague has so much to take in, the famous Charles Bridge, the city’s castle with offers stunning views, the astronomical clock, or there are pubs and breweries located throughout the city.
That evening the girls faced Prague Hostivar, while the boys took on the Presidents Club. Again the two teams were well match and offered a fun but challenging match! After the game the teams enjoyed some more hospitality before heading off into town.
The next day the team boarded their coach and headed home.
