29. See If There Are Quirky Monuments
In the Czech Republic, there is the book tunnel outside the Municipal Library of Prague. In Brussels there is the massive atom statue aptly named the Atomium. Prague also has the last surviving paternoster, which is an old-timey elevator that you could ride and pretend you're back in the 1700s. In Wroclaw, there are hundreds of gnome statues tucked away across the city, making a game of finding them all. Also in Brussels are hundreds of cartoon murals splashed across buildings, asking you to hunt them all up as you walk. When you go to a new city, see if there is some quirky monument you can visit or scavenger hunt you can participate in - it makes your stay all the more fun!
