And it was REALLY cool because when we were at the Castle, where the President lives, there was an official visit from two people from Guinea, in Africa. SO! We got to see the official welcoming and watch the guards march and stuff.. and that was pretty exciting! My favorite thing was that the soldiers looked SO happy- so proud to be able to march.. haha and also like they could BARELY keep from laughing. It was awesome! :)
Then we walked down the Prague Castle stairs- I think Solvej called them the King's steps- and we got to see an amazing view of Prague. It was so cool! I can't even describe it.. maybe the pictures will help.. then we walked through Prague some more and then took a sweet boat tour!
On Thursday we saw Karlstein Castle. Bjarke actually bought a book with facts about the Karlstein Castle so I will come back and add more later.. but the Karlstein castle was AMAZING. A real medieval castle! "Discover Karlstein castle one of Czech Republic's prized treasures. This high gothic castle was built in 1348 and overlooks the beautiful Karlstien village and valley. The castle was originally built by Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV with the impressive 60 meter high great tower for safekeeping of the royal treasures, especially Charles's collection of holy relics and the coronation jewels of the Roman Empire."
