The Docks by Walter Conner

Today we took the train to Karlstein to visit the castle there. We had a relaxed lunch at the base of the hill the castle was on. After we returned to Prague we had dinner by the docks and walked around the area.

Karlštejn by Annabelle Mullins

Today we went on a train ride to a town 30 minutes away from Prague. We hiked up a hill and saw the largest castle in the Czech Republic. When we got back, we walked to the river and looked out at the view. Then we went to dinner. After to dinner we took the metro, then another metro, then a bus back to our hotel and hung out.

Terezín by Annabelle Mullins

Today we went to a concentration center in northern Czech Republic. At first, we went to a museum that explained the history of nazis and the holocaust and everyone who was effected. Then we went to barracks where women slept while they were kept there. Then we went to a crematorium while was horrible. To think that people died exactly where you were standing was scary. Then we went to a prison that held Jews that did something wrong. This prison was a place where you worked until you died. In the prison was a movie theater where the guards would watch movies. We sat in the actual seats that they sat in and it was scary that horrible people once sat exactly where you were. Once we got back to Prague, we hung out in our rooms until dinner and then we went to bed.

Sparkling Mango by Annabelle Mullins

Today we got to explore more of Prague. The entire group went to a communist memorial for everyone who was effected by communism in Czechoslovakia. Then we walked up this mountain and at the top of the mountain, there were many stands and I had the best drink I think I ever had there. It was sparkling mango juice and It was amazing!! Then we climbed up a mini Eiffel Tower and we got to see all of Prague from above. After then we got lunch and then walked to the John Lennon Wall. Usually it’s covered in messages about peace but on earth day, it was redecorated and the drawings were all about adults not doing anything about climate change *cough cough*. Then we got to walk around the city by ourselves and at this point, I know Prague’s public transportation system better than I know Chicago’s. Finally after a long day of walking, exploring, and shopping, we went to bed.

Karlstejn by Annabelle Lake

Today we traveled to a town called Karlstejn where we visited the outside of a castle but couldn’t get in because it was closed. It was a very hot day so the walk wasn’t the best, but it was still a nice view.

The highlight of my day was that we got to go shopping in Karlstejn and I got some nice things!

Tomorrow is our last day in Prague and it’s a bittersweet feeling. I’m excited to go home, but I also have grown attached to the city and I feel like I could stay here for so much longer. In any case, I hope to come back — whether during college or another time in my life!
