Today was our transfer day from Krakow to Prague with a lunch stop in Olomouc.
 
OLOMOUC: 
A brief on Olomouc: In addition to the city hall astronomical clock, Olomouc is also known for St Wencelas Cathedral and Premyslid Palace where Mozart composed the 6th Symphony, and for the "best preserved (1,000 year old) town of Monrovia."

A brief on Prague: It's the capital of the Czech Republic, and also its largest city with a population of 2.3 million in its metropolitan area.  Prague has been the political, cultural, and economic center of central Europe during the past 1,000 years.   It was also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire in 1346 under Charles IV.   

Prague has a number of famous cultural attractions that includes Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter, and Petrin Hill.   The historic center of Prague was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. 


PRAGUE: This was my third visit to Prague, but I never get tired of visiting this interesting place with the castle at the highest point on the left bank, the Old Town (Stare Mesto) with the astronomical clock and Tye Church and the outside cafes, the small enclave of Jewish Town, and the Charles Bridge - one of the favorite tourist spots of the city.   I also like to walk through Powder Gate to Old Town, visit the Prague State Opera (where Richard Wagner's opera Die Meistersinger von Numberg was performed in 1888), the popular shopping area on Parizska Street with their international chain and local shops, and the old bazaar at Old Town with their bars, restaurant, and souvenir shops.  

Our included day tour was a visit to Prague Castle, the historic city center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a walk to the Charles Bridge, the Old Town to listen and look at the medieval atronomical clock which dates back to the 15th century.   After lunch on our own, I just walked to the areas I described above, took many pictures, and returned to the hotel in the late afternoon by tram.   I had dinner at a local restaurant not far from our hotel with another couple, returned to my room, packed my bags for our early departure in the morning for Dresden.
