Last Day in Prague

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Our last day in Prague brought a leisurely conclusion to this part of the tour to allow folks to further take in all that the past several days have brought us. We offered a casual exploration of the Old Town district through the neighborhoods and the quaint decorated houses, We strolled down Michalska Street filled with small galleries, Celetna Street, a narrow street of splendid Baroque Buildings and to Obecni Dum, the concert hall with its rich architectural details. We also topped by Havelska, the local market filled with flowers, crafts, food and other goodies—see photos.

Tonight has been planned as an evening at leisure for all to enjoy what that Prague is known for. Folks joined in on several dinner and music options…before calling it a trip-a-complis. In the morning, a 9:30 am departure from the hotel for an 11:00am train..and off to Budapest we go.

Prague-Day 1

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Throughout the day today folks arrived into Prague. Now that we’re almost 40 strong, the heart of the tour is about to beginThe program began with a welcome reception and orientation followed by Shabbat Service at one of Prague’s beautiful Synagogues.   Shabbat dinner tonight was at the lovely Louvre Restaurant a historic establishment where the likes of . Albert Einstein and Franz Kafka dined. Prague is the most beautiful city in all of Europe.  On the walk home from dinner our guests were treated to an illuminated spectacle; a special and meaningful conclusion to the first day. 

Poland – Day 3

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Today the group departed Krakow  on a 9am train bound for Warsaw.

 Upon arrival, we had lunch with a guest from the Taube Foundation, an organization  supporting the ongoing revival of Jewish culture in Poland and to furthering awareness of this resurgence. 

After lunch we embarked on a sightseeing tour of Warsaw that included the former Jewish Ghetto with many inspiring monuments of World War II Nazi period, and the site of the bunker on Mila St., Mila 18 – headquarters of Warsaw Ghetto defenders and Umschlag Platz, where 300,000 Jews were deported. 

After checking into the hotel for an evening at leisure, all eyes are on the main part of our Central Europe tour beginning tomorrow, with 25 additional group members arriving into Prague.
