Days 7-8

Day Seven – Prague River Cruise, Charles Bridge, Petrin Hill, Prague Castle and the Black Light Theatre

Along with Germany, our last day of activities was one of the busiest.  The day began with arguably the most relaxing part, a river cruise of the city of Prague, with a buffet lunch, live music and chance to take pictures and see much more of the city.  After the cruise, we met our guides, who took us on a whistle-stop tour of attractions to the west of the river, starting with Charles Bridge, with its souvenir stalls and street-traders, then taking the funicular railway up to Petrin Hill and panoramic views of the city.  The tour continued through the courtyards of Prague Castle, before descending back to the Old Town Square.  We then had time to explore and shop at our own (more sedate) in the early evening.  Later we visited the Image Theatre http://www.imagetheatre.cz/en/  to watch their performance of Afrikania.  The half-mime, half-visual-effects performance was an eclectic mix of different forms of theatre, light-hearted and comical, and included a brief cameo from one of our very own Scouts.

The departure day was spent around the site and in the village, and after lunch we said goodbye to our accommodation and reps before making the long journey home.
