What a gorgeous city! Prague is built on nine hills with a river running through it, and there wasn't much war damage here, so the buildings are original and beautiful. There is so much to see and do. We enjoyed a very sparse production of Swan Lake in a theater that used to be a bank, and a string quintet with trumpet thrown in the Spanish Synagogue. It took two days to see everything at the Royal Castle, but was worth the time - and we're kind of slow movers. But the cobblestones have done in my sneakers. Literally. The sole and top have parted ways. The cobblestones have done me in What luck that we are only a few steps from a retail area that appears bigger than Union Square. Shopping!
