    Prague

    July 28, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Another day for sight seeing. Weather looks better...thank goodness. Took a cruise on the river Moldau through Old Prague. We sat in the front of course. We went on a smaller boat which took us through some smaller waterways which reminded me of Venice. But this is Cleaner! Some dark clouds hover over head.

    The Charles Bridge is a great tourist attraction. It joins the historic quarters of Stare Mentor and Mala Strana. Heaps of tourists. Also artists line the bridge selling painting,jewelry and playing music. Religious statues also line the bridge on both sides .

    Jemniste Chateau

    June 12, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Arrived at Jemniste Chateau about 10am. Our programme included, a falconry display, a tour of the chateau, lunch and time to explore the 13ha grounds with zoo (wallabies and cockatoos included). We were welcomed with a drink by the owner. Between the communists and the Russian 'liberators' most of these places were usurped. It's only fairly recently that many have gone back to their rightful owners. The present owner lives in one wing and we toured the rest. The gardens are spectacular. The main course at lunch was wild boar. We were assured that the owner or his son would have hunted and shot it.

    The highlight for me was the falconry display. The first birds were falcons. They soared and dived after lures - they are so fast! Next a Golden Eagle. The falconer rode his horse away from us, pulled on the rein and the horse lay down with the falconer getting clear at the last minute. Some meat was placed on the horse's flank and the eagle sent off. It landed on the horse which didn't budge. In fact, it seems the horse was quite comfortable and refused the falconer's urging to get up. It was suggested that our applause might get it up - it did. Next, an Eagle Owl but it didn't fly. The real bonus was that we were encouraged to go up and 'meet' the birds.

    Transfer day

    June 10, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Nothing much to report today. We boarded the coach at 8am and arrived at our hotel in Prague about 4 pm.
    The point of interest was really driving past the old checkpoint at the Czech Republic border. Actually, I tell a lie, there is an Irish pub a few doors up from the hotel - will check that out for sure!
    Most of the journey was on a freeway, but we turned off it to go to lunch. We went to a little village and had lunch at its winery. Once through the door we went downstairs into a wine cellar for the lunch.
    We had to meet our guide at 5 for a 45 minute orientation walk. The hotel is on Stepanska Street and that goes into Wenceslas Square. By walking through the square he showed us the direction of several points of interest. As we had to feed ourselves tonight, he made a few suggestions re eating. We walked down to the river and on the way back saw a nice little restaurant. The guide had talked about the traditional dishes and that they are always served with dumplings. I had Czech goulash and Janette had duck - sure enough - both served with dumplings. They were delicious but it was too much for us to eat. Two lemonades each and the meals - €23 - about $32 - great value.
    Tomorrow - bus and walking tour of Prague.

    Prague

    June 11, 2017 in Czech Republic

    8am coach departure for Prague Castle. Already lots of people there and heavy security. Toured the castle then had tea and honey cake (my new favourite cake).
    Being a 4km walk back to Wenceslas Square, people were given the option of returning by coach. Prague is so busy - there are people everywhere - mostly tour groups following someone with a flag or umbrella etc. we walked back with our guide seeing many points of interest. Prague is choc full of old buildings and history - it's really too hard to describe. One of the things we saw was the Prague Astronomical Clock. One dial shows the hour, the one below shows minutes and dates from 1410. The main function of the clock was to depict the movement of celestial bodies (including the Sun and the Moon) - showing the time was secondary.
    Bit more shopping this afternoon. Janette can't get over the cheap prices and high quality.
    We had a farewell dinner tonight with all 36 of us that travelled on to Prague being treated to a lovely dinner in the hotel restaurant.
    Tomorrow a falconry display

    Dinner at Como

    June 12, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Tonight we dined with 4 of our new friends. We walked to Wenceslas Square and went to a restaurant called Como. We just wanted to have our own 'last meal'. Four had duck, I had cod, but Janette went traditional having goulash. If the mains were good, the desserts were great.
    We still have tomorrow (Tuesday) morning to wander around and the check out of our room by midday. In the afternoon we fly to Frankfurt and from there to Singapore - this is where we lose the time we gained on the way over.
    Ah well - it had to end sometime.

    Short and sweet

    August 16, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Our final full day in Prague was uneventful in a good way. It has been forecasted as the hotest day while we were here so we decided to spend the day wandering through the shops.

    It was nice to duck in and out of the air conditioned shops and investigate shops we don't have at home. I picked up a couple of bits. I am particularly happy with my bargin Tommy Hilfiger flip flops!!

    It was a very relaxed and chilled day. We escaped from the key part of the heat back at the hotel before heading back into the city centre for a final wander down to Charles Bridge to see It all lit up.

    A calm end to a very eventful week of travelling!!
