Czech Republic

On Monday, 15th July we left Austria and headed to Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic.

Cesky Krumlov castle was built on a hill on the Vltava River in the 13th Century. It was a great village to walk around in and the castle provided great views.

On Tuesday, 16th July we headed north via the scenic route to Prague. We stopped at Hluboka to visit the palace/castle - it has been rebuilt several times since the 13th century - very beautiful and elegant and feminine.

And at Zvikov Castle - 2 very different castles. I loved Zvikov - it was built at the end of a promontory in the 13th century and is surrounded by river and forests in just a simply beautiful area - it would be great for an artists retreat.

Then we arrived in Prague - hot and noisy - but very historical and interesting.

On Wednesday, 17th July we went on a walking tour that included a ferry ride, tram ride to the palace and a very ordinary lunch. On Thursday, 18th we went back to a few interesting places that we didn't have time to get a proper look at the day before.

We left Prague on Friday, 19th July and headed to Dresden in Germany - pics in the next blog along with Berlin where I am now!

Hope all is going well with you, take care, until next time, Auf Wiedersehen!
