Prague is a Beautiful City;
I had heard how wonderful it was and enjoyed touring all the highlights of the city.
Prague Palace, Old Town and the Charles Bridge can’t be missed. We even got to go to a Czech dinner one evening that included folklore dancing and all the beer and wine you would like.
George and I just came home from our first River Cruise.
We sailed the Danube River from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary on the Avalon Waterways River Cruises on the Poetry.
The 12 day tour left from Boston, MA to Heathrow, London and then on to Prague, Czech Republic where we met up with the Globus tours.
The tour included 3 nights at the modern Prague Hilton which we liked, except for trying to figure out the slot machines. If you won or wanted to get your money you had to call an attendant.

On the day we were to leave for the riverboat in Nuremberg we had a change of plans due to low water in the Danube River. The closest the boat could get to us was in Passau, Germany. This is something that happens on river cruises, if the river is to shallow the boat can’t get up the river and if the rivers to high the boat can’t get under the bridges.
Because we missed two cities we stayed in Passau two extra days and were given motor coach tours to Nuremberg and Regensburg.
Tours of each city was included in the cost of the cruise. We took a tour of Regensburg, Germany, a lovely city on the river.
While there we had lunch that included German sausages. We later had plenty of time to explore the city and to do some shopping.
