Exploring Prague

Well the family made it to Prague, all safe and sound, and they seem to be over the jet lag.  The last couple of days has mainly been getting settled in to the flat we rented and exploring the city.

 So far we've done the usual touristy bits such as the Charles Bridge, Wenceslas Square, Old Town, and up to the castle.  I still want to take them back up to the castle so that they can see inside the cathedral.  The architecture is a bit hit as we just don't have buildings this beautiful back home.

Everyone seems to be adjusting well but I'm keeping a running list of the things that are a surprise for them.  For example, until this visit they had never had cucumbers and tomatoes served at breakfast.

Of course they now appreciate just how good Czech beer is.  Dad particularly liked the dark beer at U Fleků and is collecting coasters for all of the different beers he tries.  Mom has discovered medovina, the honey wine liqueur.

Now that everyone is getting acclimated to Prague it is time to start a few days trip to Karlštejn, Český Krumlov, Terezín, Kutná Horá, Plzeň, Karlovy Vary, and to Dresden in Germany.
