Today was a full day of touring this amazing City starting at 8am and going through til 8pm. I'm not sure how to summarize this quickly since the day was so full of cultural experiences.
Along with our Adventures by Disney guides we had a local guide for today. Her name was Hana. She knew everything about Prague and really taught us about the history that happened and how it is today.
We started up on the Hill at the Prague Castle. This Baroque castle is still used today by the Czech President. The castle has been restored but kept as original as possible. There are gardens and vineyards everywhere.
One of my favorite parts of the castle district was the Golden Lane. Prague is built right on top of each other which basically shows the ranks of the people and this area was built below the castle for the GoldSmiths. The homes were very quaint. There wasn't much space in each one.
We strolled down to the Charles Bridge. I love this walking bridge. It has many statues including the St. John of Nepomuck where people come from all over to rub their hands on it for good luck.
We headed back to Old Town square to learn more about the Astronomical Clock that resides on the Old Town Hall. It chimes every hour where tourist come to watch the 12 apostles pass by the two blue windows.
Our afternoon was very unique and Adventures By Disney gave us three experiences in a row that I'll never forget!
Marionettes are a long time tradition in their entertainment in Europe itself but there is a theatre that allows you to make your own! We created our own with the family owned company Don Giovanni. We got them packaged up and get to take them home.
We walked through the Jewish Quarters to get to our River Cruise tour. We sailed up and down the Vltava. I got to see the Cityscape of Prague and the Charles bridge head on. Incredible!!!
I have loved getting to know the culture here so it was exciting to end the night at a folklore gardens dinner and show. We got to sing, learn a dance and even play a game. The food was family style and delicious.
