Prague

September 24 – September 26, 2022

Lauded as one of the top cultural centers of Europe, and a city nearly without equal for well-preserved architecture, incredible history, and beauty, Prague attracts guests with irresistible charm. 

Itinerary

Day 7: Prague, Czechia
Saturday, September 24, 2022
Arrive by motor coach in historic Prague, the largest city in Czechia and listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register. Experience the best of the city with a half-day guided walking tour sampling Prague's outstanding historic monuments, museums, and galleries. 

Prague’s Old Town is a picture-perfect Bohemian setting. Begin with a guided stroll through narrow streets to Old Town Square, the oldest and most significant square in the historic center. After a turbulent past, this bustling part of town is now alive with energy and an atmosphere people find uplifting. Explore Prague’s past, present, and future by surveying highlights and hidden gems. Pause at the legendary 15th-century astronomical clock before climbing the steps to the Town Hall Tower for breathtaking views of the city. Take a relaxing walk across the Vltava River on the Charles Bridge as artists, musicians, and street troupers perform for visitors. 
Overnight: Prague Marriott

Day 8: Prague
Sunday, September 25, 2022
Atop a hill in a small town north of Prague stands the Mělník Castle—a Renaissance landmark in one of the most significant agricultural areas in Czechia. Mělník produces fresh fruits and vegetables, sugar, beets, and wine. In fact, Mělník is where the first vineyard in Bohemia was planted. 

Once the home of Princess Ludmila, the grandmother of the Good King Wenceslas, the castle has been the residence of the queen widows of Bohemia. Delight in discovering the ornate interiors of the castle and marvel at incredible Baroque masterpieces. Visit the concert hall on the second floor and view the portraits of members of the Lobkowicz dynasty along with elaborately painted and stenciled wooden ceilings. In the Grand Drawing Room, take note of the mostly Rococo furniture. Two tables have gilded brass figures of angels decorating the legs. History abounds, with 16th-century suits of armor in the Knights’ Hall. The palace is divided into two parts, with the bedrooms, dining rooms and halls on the upper floors and the wine cellars beneath. 

During the tour, learn the wine-making legacy attached to Mělník Castle and enjoy a tasting of six local wines with snacks. In the cavernous cellars, be enveloped by the aroma of wine and oak, and see the presses, barrels, and bottles on display. Wines at the chateau include Ludmila wine, sparkling wine Chateau Mělník, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Traminer, and Lobkowicz’s St. Laurent, depending on the yield. Conclude with a delightful three-course lunch surrounded by this structure's royal and historical atmosphere.

Activity Level

Moderate

Activities are generally not very strenuous, however, we expect that guests can enjoy two hours or more of walking, are sure-footed on cobbled surfaces, and can walk up and down hillsides and stairs without assistance. Historic city centers are usually more accessible by foot than vehicle. Due to the structure of some buildings, facilities for the disabled may be limited.
