We had a long travel day from beautiful Budapest to iconic Prague. We changed the Danube River for the Vltava River. Our train was comfortable. The first class seats were minimally more than tourist class, and we had reserved seats in a comfortable car. Being able to move around and go to the food car kept us from becoming weary.
Upon arrival in Prague, we unloaded our gear in our hotel located just off the old town. We walked to the 14th century pedestrian Charles Bridge with its large statuary positioned upon the low rise walls on each side. Spired towers, the unique architectural style for Prague that dot the city, guard the entrance to the bridge. As we walked into the old town from the bridge to find an authentic Czech restaurant, we passed what I had been waiting for–trdelnik stalls. I love trdelnik–soft bread on the inside, crispy cinnamon and sugar on the outside, all shaped on rollers that bake the bread over charcoal fire. I’ll be eating it often! WEG
