Prague, Czech Republic
|We had a great time in the oldest city in Europe. While it was cloudy and cold, and the sites were nothing too special compared to what we have seen this semester, this place stood out as one of our favorites. The currency used here is the Czech Koruna, which make prices extremely cheap (one half litre of beer was about 75 american cents!). Souvenirs were equally as cheap, and of which we bought plenty. Enjoy|
Brad exits our hostel, Hostel Boathouse. It is about 50 feet from the river, and the entire building is elevated about 30 feet from the ground, being an old boat house obviously.
Here is a view of the main attraction in Prague, the Prague Castle. The complex has a view churches in addition to the castle, and the oldest stuff is 10th century
On the Charles Bridge, a very old, famous, and touristy bridge in Prague. Many of you might remember it from the movie Mission Impossible
Here I am on the bridge, and you can see the castle and tourists behind me
