Where I stayed
It was a four hour ride to Prague, known inside the Czech Republic as Praha. The Czech Republic itself was known as Bohemia for many centuries,
So here we are in Bohemia with our Bohemian daughter and her Bohemian grandmother.
It is a beautiful city. Much more so than we expected.
After checking in at our hostel, Shelby took us on a walking tour through narrow cobblestone streets and wide open plazas. We went up into the tower at the 700 year-old town hall and the views of the old city were awesome
One of the most amazing sites is that all the sidewalks are laid out in mosaic patterns with old, small stone tiles.
Needing some refreshments, we stopped at the cafe in the House of the Black Madonna, well known for its cubist architecture.
We made it to the Charles Bridge at dusk and after checking out the many street artists, we made our way to dinner at a restaurant Shelby said came recommended for their fish dinners. And they were right, the fish was delicious.
Tomorrow we are touring the castle district...
