"Day 10 (29 Sept) Nuremberg (Disembarkation)Prague, Czech Republic"
"After breakfast, say goodbye to your crew and travel by motorcoach to Prague, the Golden City.
Predictably, traffic problems just like Ottawa ...
Graffiti artists are everywhere.
The view from our hotel bedroom.
The elegant reception area of our hotel, the Boscolo Prague
Our first walk through the Prague city centre.
Inside the formidable central shopping mall.
A definitely different dining area!
But we chose a less luxurious locale for 'capps' and treats.
Our ladies' council discusses ... well ... just about everything!
Actually, it was a wine tasting of a luscious Wachau Region wine.
But Keith is not impressed with the outcome of their discussions!
Such a beautiful hotel!
We dine in the unique hotel dining room.
The bar area adjacent to our table.
A typical Czech dinner, veal schnitzel and potato salad, simple but tasty!!!
Carol images our repas in the hotel's formal dining room.
"Prague is a 1,200-year-old city preserved in time, and, unlike other Central European capitals, it was not bombed during the 20th-century wars. A Local Guide shows you its best-known treasures, such as the Old Towns Astronomical Clock, built in 1410 and once the envy of all of Europe; HRADCANY CASTLE GROUNDS; St. Vitus Cathedral; and the Charles Bridge,the oldest bridge in Prague. Browse the shops for hand-cut crystal or art books. Mix with the locals in Wenceslaus Square, an important meeting point where people demonstrated against the communist regime; or watch performers on Charles Bridge."
A sumptuous breakfast at the hotel, then off on our tour.
