Welcome to Kadaň – City Center


Well, I’m gonna interrupt your regularly scheduled pictures from England to show you around my little home away from my home away from home.  I currently find myself enjoying a Pilsner Urquell (supposedly THE original pilsner) at the bar in the Hotel Split, located on the bank of the Ohře River in Kadaň, Czech Republic.

Or, if like me, that means nothing to you, I’m here:

And while the place does have all the familiar symptoms of the random places I visit for work; it’s in the middle of nowhere, it has a nearby coal mine, power plants, and absolutely nothing to do, it is a surprisingly pretty little place.  As such I’ve taken a few walks about town during my stay, and predictably, I took more than a couple pictures.  So, feel free to join me as I have a look around this little town….

And I’m off. And I have no fucking clue where I’m going… But that sign certainly clears things up.

A little trail runs along the river from my hotel to the Zentrum (city center).

Just wandering around the little roads…

This is a travesty… I wish they had good American beer out here, but, they don’t.

What?

Cool old churchy thing. And those clouds in the background, well, they aren’t. That’s steam from the cooling towers of the power plant du jour.

Another old building thing.

Shit yeah. I’ll admit the Rocky theme was basting in my head for the remainder of my walk.

Kind of a cool little plaza.

Shit yeah, they have computer technology up in here.

I have to admit, I was expecting a lot more of this. But, the town’s a decent little place.

Pretty landscape too.

I don’t like your Jirkov name, I don’t like your Jirkov face, I don’t like your Jirkov behavior and I don’t like you, Jirkov.

Obligatory European castle remains.

Kind of a neat little corner of this little planet of ours.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, these free beers aren’t going to drink themselves.

Come back soon and we’ll go for a stroll along the river.  And fret not, pictures of London and the English country side are coming too.

Don’t be a stranger.

    Great photos, and a surprisingly charming town. That gated tower is something!
