This chilling day we spent in Capitol city of the Czech Republic, Prague. We didn't miss changing royal guards in the complex of Prague Castle, visited St.Vitus Cathedral and even walked thru Golden Lane - the street full of small houses built in Mannerism style at the end of the 16th century. Then we crossed Charles Bridge continued to Old Town Square where children got some free time to explore Prague on their own in smaller groups. The end of trip was highlighted by rushing and catching train in last seconds before departure.
