We started our trip with three and half days in Prague. We accommodation was an apartment near Old Town Square (arranged through Prague Central Apartments), which helpfully included a pickup from the airport.

We wandered the Old Town, including the Old Town Square, the narrow streets, crossing the Vltava River on Charles Bridge and climbing up to the castle.

We also ventured out of the downtown to visit Vyšehrad Castle and the associated Cemetery which overlooks the city a few kilometres upstream. Further upstream from the downtown, we also visited my great aunt.
