Czech Republic

chimney climbing

Czech Republic is one of the very few if not the only country to have an official chimney climbing association - "Svaz českých komínářů" or the "Union of Czech Chimney Climbers" - a state-registered civic organization of people who climb factory chimneys and cooling towers as a leisure activity and also take part in industrial architecture history documentation as well as chimney maintenance and preservation.

pub crawl

There is a Pub Crawl that meets every night at 24 Dlouha street close to Old Town Square at 8:00 pm. It's cheap and they take you to some cool pubs, bars and you end up at a night club. Its a really good way to see what the Prague night life is really like. Even in the off season.
