River Vltava, Prague

By TrevBatWCC    
Following our free day, on the Tuesday we had a coach outing over the border into the Czech Republic, which was only about 5 kilometres as the crow flies from our hotel in Bavaria, and on into it's beautiful capital Prague.
The authorities decided to simplify the country's name to Czechia, but not everyone is happy with the name change. Some are worried English speakers will confuse the name with the Russian Republic of Chechnya. While others worry that it's too close to Cheka, an earlier name of the KGB, many residents opposed this shortened version. "Nobody calls it Czechia", one explained, "people are used to the name Czech Republic by now".
Anyway, call it what you will, the coach dropped us close by the Čechův Most (bridge) where we crossed over the Vltava River to take us into the Old Town area. These are couple of shots taken from the bridge looking back to the western side of the river.

Prague is in my top 5 list of European cities to visit. This does nothing to dampen my desire to visit.
