Prague - last dayJuly 29, 2017 in Czech Republic
The train ride to Karlstejn was a good way to get more views of Prague as we crossed the River and then some outer suburbs before the scenery changed to beautiful green countryside. It was about a 30-40 minute walk to the main entry of the Karlstejn Castle, however, if you stop at all the stalls and souvenir shops along the way, it could stretch to about 1 hour. There are different tours you can do at the castle or you can just wander around the areas where you are allowed free entry. We did the "private and representative halls of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV" - a mouthful but it was a good tour.
Tomorrow we fly to Frankfurt where we pick up a hire car for about a month as we tour through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia before heading to Milan to drop off the car and catch a train to Venice for 5 days.Read more
