Visit to Praha written by my son
Hi friends, I have one last travel post for you as we prepare for our trip back to the US.
Just like I mentioned last week my little man wanted to write about his trip to Praha (Prague). He loved it and is so excited to tell you all about it. So here he goes:

Hello to all of my mom’s readers out there in the blogosphere. I’m the little man of the house and I want to show you some of my favorite places that we went to in Praha.
|inside the Palace where the Bohemian kings and royalty met|
|This is Golden Lane (that’s where all the workers lived) in Praha castle and it was my favorite part.|
- 1st day lunch was pork, dumplings, and sauerkraut in a gravy at U Dvou Sester (ONE OF THE BEST MEALS EVER!)
- 2nd day lunch at the Medieval Tavern and had two smoked sausages (BEST SAUSAGES EVER!)
- 3rd day dinner was at Kotleta and I ate duck leg with dumplings in a gravy (BEST DINNER EVER! Ok I loved it all and can’t really make up my mind)
|St. Nicholas is one of the nicest churches in the world in my opinion and my dad agrees.|
|This was on Charles Bridge and we saw an amazing double rainbow.
Charles Bridge was really nice it is similar to the one in Würzburg but better.
It was also cool to go and visit the Sedlec Ossuary in Kutná Hora with my dad and here is some of the strange history:
In 1278, Henry, the abbot of the Cistercian monastery in Sedlec, was sent to the Holy Land by King Otakar II of Bohemia. He returned with him a small amount of earth he had removed from Golgotha and sprinkled it over the abbey cemetery. The word of this pious act soon spread and the cemetery in Sedlec became a desirable burial site throughout Central Europe.
After the Black Death (14th century) and the Hussite Wars (15th century) thousands were buried in the cemetery. (there was even a showcase of skulls from the Hussite Wars)
After 1511, the task of exhuming skeletons and stacking their bones in the chapel was given to a half-blind monk of the order.
In 1870, František Rint, a woodcarver, was employed to put the bone heaps into order, yielding a macabre result.
|It was the most scary and also beautiful thing I ever saw!|
We saw so many great things and these were just some of my favorites.
I can’t wait to show this post (and the ones my mom wrote) to my friends in school. I learned so much on my vacation and now I even know how to write a blog post.
I can’t wait for our trip to Europe next year but back to school I am in three days 🙁
So that was my favorite little man and I’m so proud of him and how he enjoys all the traveling and different foods.
Wish us luck on our trip back tomorrow.
Talk to you soon.

What a great post! You have writing skills just like your mama! I love all the history, too…I never knew any of that! And it makes me happy that you are a foodie and will try everything…love that everything was THE BEST. Too cute! 😉
Awesome post, little man (although you look pretty grown up to me)! I think you’ve just inspired me to put that on our list of places to visit, between the food and history I know our family would love it! Thanks, and have fun sharing it at school!
Oh my goodness, I’ve never seen anything like those bones and skulls! You all are having such a rich experience together, I can’t imagine all of the things you’re learning. Great job on the post, little man! I love the picture of all of the locks, too. There must be a story with that. Have a safe trip home!
You’re mom should be worried you’ll take over her blog. 🙂 This was a great post! Your trip with your dad looked like THE BEST TRIP EVER!!! Everything was VERY interesting. I like that you tasted all of the food you had never tried before. Brave. Although it did look tasty. You are right about all the bones. They were creepy and beautiful at the same time. Thank you for sharing your trip. Nice job writing!!!
Don’t you just wish that you could be beamed home? That trip home is always painful, but I hope that it goes smoothly for you and I am sure you will all be happy to be home (after the jet lag subsides). What an awesome post your son wrote!!!
Little Man Of The House, you are better than most at this Blog world! Congratulations! This is one of the most interesting Posts I’ve read.

Your son is such a cutie! Thank you for bringing us all along on your travels. I hope you and your family have a safe and enjoyable trip home!
Thanks for sharing and well done. Its really nice that you get to go home for a longer period and travel so much. I love that idea.
Hallo Julia! Was für ein toller Post 🙂 Ganz großen Respekt an deinen Sohn, ich hatte solchen Respekt vor dem Beinhaus in Kutná Hora. Fürchterlich gruselig fand ich das! Sein Bericht macht mir große Lust, mal wieder nach Prag zu fahren 🙂 So weit weg von München ist es ja nun nicht und ich war schon so lange nicht mehr dort.
Danke Andrea! Ich werde es ihm ausrichten. Ich wünschte, ich wäre mit unserer Tochter mitgefahren aber ihr ist das viele Besichtigen und Laufen noch zu viel. Schade!
Na, Prag läuft euch ja nicht davon 🙂 Ich hab gesehen, dass ihr auch in München wart. Mochtet ihr die St. Michaelskirche? Da hatten wir vor Kurzem ein Konzert und ich finde sie so so schön!
Congrats übrigens! Euer Haus ist super toll. Ich hatte deinen Blog vor einiger Zeit durch Zufall gefunden, als ich nach Außenlösungen für Katzen gefunden habe und hab mich total gefreut, dich auf YHL zu sehen!
I spent about 4 weeks in Slovakia and the Czech Republic a few years back, and we, too, visited Kutna Hora and the ossuary. It’s pretty unbelievable, and definitely one of the most unusual places I’ve been a tourist. Love your son’s post–thanks!
Thanks for reading! It was one of his favorite places.
Um, hello heartbreaker! What a cutie pie you have there…thanks for sharing your amazing trip! 🙂
Seriously what a handsome young man!
I had missed this post till just now. I am so impressed and you inspired me to search about some of these famous/historical folks. Thanks for the great post.
