Trip Extension: Prague

Delight in terra-cotta cityscapes and Prague's remarkable history on our optional trip extension.

Discover the “City of 100 Spires,” the name given to Prague for its many hilltop neighborhoods, where rows of steeples stand out against the city’s skyline. An ancient city and new cultural capital for Eastern Europe, Prague exudes Old World character and a modern, vibrant spirit. Wander about the city’s twisting cobblestone streets and old neighborhoods, where ancient houses crowd each other along narrow lanes ... and experience the museums and cathedrals that make Prague stand out as one of Europe’s finest cities.

It's Included:
Accommodations for 4 nights
Daily breakfasts, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner
Included tours: Bratislava • Prague
Dedicated services of a local Program Director
Gratuities for local guides and motorcoach drivers
All transfers
  • As your journey along The Great Rivers of Europe comes to a close, you'll transfer overland to Prague, Czech Republic. Along the way, you'll stop off in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, for an included walking tour, free time, and lunch. You'll arrive in Prague in the early evening. Your Program Director will be happy to suggest a restaurant where you can enjoy dinner on your own tonight.

  • This morning's tour will focus on two of Prague's most memorable landmarks: its ancient castle and St. Vitus Cathedral. The Gothic cathedral and its enormous rose window sit entirely within Prague Castle, a centuries-old defensive structure that ranks as one of the largest castles in the world. Prague's regal beauty spreads on both sides of the winding Vltava River, connected by 16 picturesque bridges. Like Rome and San Francisco, the city is built over a series of hills, and its varied architecture spans many centuries.

    Later this morning, you'll depart for Prague's Old Town where you'll embark on a guided walking tour. You'll head to Old Town Hall to witness the famous 15th-century astronomical clock. Every hour, crowds assemble below to watch Christ and the twelve Apostles appear at two little windows above the clock face, followed by the skeleton of Death tolling the bell. Then, you'll receive a subway ticket so you may explore the city and catch the rhythm of daily life in this cosmopolitan gem.

    The remainder of the day is at leisure to make further discoveries, then enjoy dinner on your own this evening. 

  • Spend this morning exploring Prague on your own. As it was during the zenith of the Bohemian kingdom, Prague still ranks as the thriving center of the country, with an artistic community reminiscent of Paris in the 1920s. Here you'll find some of Europe's best jazz venues, excellent opera, and innovative theater groups. Dinner is on your own tonight.

    Or, join an optional morning excursion to visit the town of Terezin. The first transport of Jews was sent to Terezin in November of 1941. Over the course of the war, the town was transformed into a “model” ghetto called Theresienstadt. In reality, it served as a transit point to the Nazi death camps, and 135,000 people were sent here.
