Prague is a Beautiful
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.

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.
