Uncovering Europe's best budget hotels since 2001.
If you’re flying into Prague’s Ruzyne airport today, you can breath a sigh of relief. Stricter security measures applied last week have been lifted.
Here’s the punchline: Czech authorities applied stricter security measures last week at the suggestion of a psychic. We hope that the TSA is taking notes.
ABC Prague reports that a woman—who also “happens” (um…) to be a psychic—called the Czech authorities last Wednesday, warning of a possible shooting at the airport. We assume that she waived her $3.99/minute fee when the police made a follow-up call. Presto! Instant security measures at the airport, though it’s unclear why the authorities chose to believe her.
No charges will be pressed against the woman for phoning in the false claim. Perhaps she’s agreed to pay back the city with free palm readings?
