Last Day in Prague

While we had the best intentions to wake up early and head out to view all the “touristy” sites without the masses, our bodies wanted otherwise and we had a nice sleep in.

We strolled through the streets and made our way to the Charles Bridge to look out. We saw some cool things on the way:

We then climbed the tower:

We continued over the bridge:

We then stumbled on one of the many “Thai massage” places that are all around Prague and decided to have foot massages.

We then went and walked through St. Nicholas’ church.

^^^ Looks like we are praying…but kids were checking their phones, and I was reading our guide book about the church (truly)

We found a great little place for lunch and had some traditional Czech food.

We then headed up to the Royal Palace and St. Vitus Catherdral – which was simply incredible.

We saw some more of the palace and then Rob got  the chance to shoot a bow and arrow:

Best Starbucks ever:

After we did the palace tour, we headed back down to the village and it started to rain.

What do you do in the rain? You find cover and get dessert.

And that is exactly what we did until the rain passed.

We decided we wanted to go to the organ/soprano concert at St. Nicholas, with different renditions of “Ave Maria”, so we headed back to the Church to buy some tickets. Because we were a bit early, we hung out in Starbucks, where the kids enjoyed some wifi.

The concert was really cool. The acoustics were incredible and it was neat to hear the organ that Mozart once played on in that very church! The kids, while not thrilled about going to a concert, knew that it was something memorable and sat and listened, while doing the standard “church tickles” (you scratch my back for 2 min, then we switch).

We found a great little restaurant right under the Charles Bridge and had some incredible Schnitzel. It was a great meal to end our trip on!

We headed back to the hotel to pack, and got a rained on a little near the end of our walk. We lucked out with weather this trip, I tell you!

All in all, it was an incredible trip. It’s really hard to describe my favourite parts, as it was truly all so good. But I know in time, as we talk and reminisce, we will come up with our favourite memories.
