Started out with a walk to the Prague Castle. It was a nice uphill hike. The stairs almost killed me. How am I still out of shape? Anyway, this area has lots of old buildings worth visiting. I checked out the cathedral, old royal palace, St George's basilica, and the Golden Lane. Lots of history, lots of great photo opps, and great view of the city.
Next I took the "kings walk" into town
Walked past the Josefov cemetery but unfortunately it was closed. Next time I guess. Took a stroll back over the bridge to Kampa Island. Saw some creepy baby sculptures and lots of kids running around.
Decided to climb Petrin Hill before dark. As if I wasn't tired enough I punished my feet and legs with countless stairs and inclines. It was worth it though. I met a wonderful couple from Mexico. We finished the hike to the top together and climbed a tower. More stairs!!!! After that we walked through a mirror maze and visited a psychedelic art cavern. They invited me to hang with them so we hit the lounge in their hotel. It was really nice. Had dinner and Czech beer and called it a night.
I'm going to miss Prague. I think this has been my favorite stop so far. I will have to come back, if not on this trip some other time.
