Herna Bars

Czechs must love gambling. Back in 2007, Czechs bet 90 billion crowns (+$4 billion). The country has around 130 casinos. There are +50,000 slot machines in the ČR. That's about 1 machine for every 200 people.

In addition to the casinos, there are lots of herna bars that you find all over the place. A herna bar is a non-stop place where you can go play slot machines and roulette while drinking cheap beer.

I haven't actually been inside of one yet but from the outside they either look seedy or totally cheesy. I can just picture middle-aged alcoholics drinking, while sitting in a smoke-filled room, and gambling away their hard-earned wages.

Don't get me wrong! I love to visit Las Vegas and I do enjoy my blackjack. But, I doubt that the inside of a herna bar will remind me too much of Vegas. But who knows?
