Bob maybe for walking around the city, and there are lots of bumpy stone streets in Prauge you may want to look at a good quality monopod. easier to carry and set up, don't have as big a foot print in congested areas, can move around pretty well with camera on it and be ready to go. Manfrotto makes one that is free standing with retractable legs in the base. This is therory from my research as I haven't bought one yet.
