DAY 1 - ARRIVE IN PRAGUE
Arrive in Prague today and check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. After you've settled in, set out to explore the capital of the Czech Republic. Prague is known as the ‘City of a Hundred Spires' due to its steeple-woven skyline, and from a vantage point along the river or looking down from the St. Vitus Cathedral, you'll be able to see why. Indulge in some fantastic Czech cuisine this evening and be sure to try a local beer - many say it is the finest in the world. (Overnight in Prague)

 DAY 2 - PRAGUE
After a good night's rest and breakfast in your hotel, enjoy a full day sightseeing in this attractive medieval city. Take a walk along Prague's centerpiece, the 14th century Charles Bridge, and admire the stunning views of Prague Castle towering above the city and the Vltava River. While by the river, perhaps visit the Mala Strana (the Little Quarter), home to the Baroque church of St. Nicholas and the Renaissance gardens. Veer off the tourist trail to explore the narrow-cobbled streets that surround the Old Town Square and discover hidden courtyards, medieval chapels and delightful cafes.
