    Is there anyone from the Czech Republic here? I'll be staying in Prague for 4 days next week and I was wondering if there are any places of Star wars I could visit. Like Sci-Fi shops, or bookshops where they sell SW books?

    Heya :)

    As far as I know, there should be some SW books in "Palác knih Luxor" ("Palace of books Luxor") which is in the middle of Wenceslas square (on the left side if you're going up towards the Museum). It's the largest bookstore in Prague, I believe, and they have a large sci-fi/fantasy section and books in foreign languages section.

    There's also a bookstore called Krakatit (on Jungmannova street, no. 14) which specialises on comics, sci-fi and fantasy. Though I'm not sure how are they with books in English...

    Lastly, you can get in touch with the local SW fans. They meet every Wednesday evening (if I remember correctly) in a teahouse "Dejvická èajovna" (the address is V.P.Èkalova 12), which had been unofficially rechristened "The Jedi's teahouse". :p Anyway, you can get in touch with them through the Czech Star Wars Universe website and the chat they have there (click on "Registrovat" to register; the required fields are marked with an asterisk and the order is username / password / name / surname / ... / e-mail).

    Hope that helps. :)

    I was to Harrachov this week, but all I got to see was Vietnamese selling Absinthe.

    I wasn't in Jedi's pub, didn't have much time, but I went to Vaclavske Namesti and did find some good books in Luxor. Crystal Star and Lays of Beleriand. :D they don't have those things in local bookshop.

    Prague was amazing, Vienna beautiful, I was tad dissappointed by Budapest, but the excursion was great. :D
    I love the metro. Didn't see any pick-pocket gangs, though. :p

    Did you see the sign that says "Take one of our horse driven city tours -- we guarantee no miscarriages?"

    Znojmo is roughly in the south of Moravia...
