Have just returned to our hotel in Prague after our second day wandering the cobbled streets of Prague. We have walked about 7 hours per day in what is probably our favourite city in the world. The wonderful old architecture and the abilty to get high over the city sights combines to create wonderful empathy with the city. CIMG3009

Yesterday we stood in the pouring rain and lightning of a storm over Prague in the old Jewish Cemetry attached to the old Pinkus Synagogue whose 1520 era walls are covered in the names of the 80,000 Czech Jews who were murdered by the Nazi's.

We have attended a Mozart Strauss concert on the first evening and have spent hours wandering through St Vitus Cathedral and through the tiny streets of Hradcany Castle high over the Old City. Music is on offer everywhere but our feet are too tired and sore after the walking marathon today. We have climbed hundreds of steps and feel physically fitter than we thought we are. CIMG3099

Early tomorrow we leave for Krakow and hope the mood continues.
