DAY 19- Prague

Breakfast wasnâ€™t until 9AM, so we got a bit of a sleep-in. We left the hotel at 9:30 to do a small walking tour of Prague. It was optional, so not everyone was there. It turns out that by this time, there were a lot of people getting sick. We got onto the train from the station (Krizikova) that was right near the ATM we had used the day before, to go to Hradcany first (Malostranska station), then walked through old town and over Charles Bridge. At 11:30, we met up at Jan Hus with the others who hadnâ€™t joined us on the walking tour (if they wanted to meet us- it wasnâ€™t mandatory) to take a cruise on the Vltava river. The cruise lasted two hours and included a buffet lunch and drinks and a tour guide.
My overall impression of Prague was very good. The people here are nice, the city itself is beautiful, and itâ€™s incredibly easy to find your way around. The one thing that ruined it, and it canâ€™t even be applied to the whole city, just certain areas, but once in a while the air starts smelling bad- a combination between sewage and garbage. We had a lot of fun, though. Our visit to Prague was great!
