Today we went to a little town about 25 minutes away from Prague that has one of the biggest castle in the Czech Republic. Unfortunately, a lot of the stores were closed and we weren’t allowed to go inside the castle but it was still a fun experience to hike up to it and look at the view from the top. We had dinner in the docks tonight which was so much fun. I loved watching all the boats and paddle boats on the river and all the people having picnics by the water. It was a really relaxed vibe and even though we stayed there until it was dark, I still felt really safe. Tomorrow is our last day but I am looking forward to trying to rent one of the paddle boats and doing some final shopping for gifts!
Monday morning we left for Karlstein, which Mrs. Tallman had said was the biggest castle in the Czech Republic. We had missed our first train to the castle so we waited for the next train which allowed us to go a square in the middle of Prague where a bunch of protests against the government occurred. We finally got on the train but on Mondays the castle and most museums are closed so we were not able to most of the castle but the scenery around the castle was really beautiful to look at. We then went gift shopping and Evzan was named a night by Sir Tallman. We walked back to the train station and went back to the apartments to cleanup for dinner. We tried to eat near the docks but no place looked good for the entire group so we broke up into groups and split up.
Today we traveled in a train for about 30 minutes to visit a small village that has the largest castle in the Czech Republic. While there we ate at a nice restaurant that had a cat roaming around which was amazing. When we got back, we took the subway to the docks and had Italian food. Over all, it was a very relaxed day compared to the rest even though we walked over six miles. I am very sad that tomorrow is our last day but I am ready to see my family.
