Date of Trip: June 2009
We were in Prague for three day prior to river cruise with Uniworld on the River Beatrice. We stayed at the Maximilian which turned to be very near the Old Town Square. We had plans to use a Prague Travel Pass, but our communications broke down and we never got it authorized for use. Anyway it didn’t matter we simply walked around the whole three days. We saw the clock do its thing at noon, we drank in the afternoon in the square and watched people. We walked twice to the St. Charles Bridge and first time walked it in the rain, well it stopped part way across. Once on the other side we had two gyros for lunch and a coke. We walked back to the square and sat on a park bench and watched the world go by.
We had dinner the a great little restaurant called the “Crazy Cow” We had a 400g New York Steak and chips, two beers and wife had wine. The meat was cooked to perfection. It was great dinner. The next we came back again, this time we shared a Caesar salad and it was more than enough to two. We walked in the rain again the second day, stood under the London Powder tower to get out of the rain. There is a great variety of souveniers and many stores to chose from. The area is very clean.
A word about our hotel. The room was just right and it had a balcony facing the front. All you could see were more roofs and building, but it was perfect. We had breakfast included with the room. We had a problem with our arranged transfer to Passau not arriving at the appointed time and the staff of the hotel helped us and we finally got our transportation and made it the ship on time.
My wife and I enjoyed the three days we were just taking in the sights nearby and it was great.
