What I did
Situated on the banks of the Vltava river, the town was built around a 13th-century castle with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. It is an outstanding example of a small central European medieval town whose architectural heritage has remained intact thanks to its peaceful evolution over more than five centuries.
The town grew up within a meander of the Vltava river, which provides a natural setting of great beauty. Its evolution over time is evident with startling clarity from its buildings and its urban infrastructure. It has profited from a relatively peaceful history in that it has retained its entire medieval layout and most of its historic buildings relatively intact. Restoration and conservation has been slight and so there can be no question as to the authenticity of both the townscape and its components
Lots of great shopping here. All those at home will benefit! Had a great lunch with Peter and Amy in a quaint Inn with great food. I had a Blue Cheese Burger (no more Snitzel please!) and a big bier.
We set back out on the bus for Vienna, it was a long and winding drive. We made it into Vienna just in time for our group dinner reservation in Vienna. The meal started with an awesome beef broth soup and then the main course... drumroll... snitzel! Ended with great chocolate cake and headed to out new hotel. My room is great and I'm going to jump into bed and prepare for two days of touring Vienna.
