We were fortunate enough to again stay at a Hilton on Layton's accumulated points...it was in a great location too. We were able to walk just about anywhere we wanted to visit.

We took Huff's advice and did a bike tour of the town. We had our own personal tour because no one else signed up for the afternoon tour. The tour was great because we got to hit all the top spots of the city without walking our legs off. One interesting thing about Prague...Hitler wanted to protect this beautiful city, even the Jewish Quarter. So, he did not bomb it and protected the city as a jewel. He wanted a nice place for the Germans to visit. It is pretty incredible how much of the city is in its original state versus the other cities we have visited which were anywhere from 50 to 80% destroyed by bombs! So crazy.

We went to Letenske Beer Garden on the recommendation of Paul and Kelly (our new friends we met in Chesky Krumlov). We had to climb up to the park area but it was great to be up higher for a wonderful view of the city. This is what Dallas needs more of. Great scenery with cheap beer on a nice day!

Our last day in Prague we spent walking over the Charles bridge and hoofing it up to the Prague Castle. Both are impressive and very iconic of the city. Then, we were on a bus to Berlin!
