Sept. 7th 2015 – The final day of our trip with Viking we visited the Kostnice Ossuary in Sedlec, a small suburb of Kutna Hora and then the town of Kutna Hora.
The ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, whose bones have in many cases been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel. We didn’t spend much time at the Ossuary it was very creepy.
We visited Kutna Hora and had lunch prior to returning to Prague.
Sept. 5th and 6th – On the 5th we left Budapest by bus and traveled to Prague which took a good part of the day. After checking in to our hotel we used the Viking shuttle to go in to the main square of the old town and enjoyed dinner. The next day we had an 8:15 walking tour which finished at about noon. After lunch we rested up at the hotel and then returned to the main square for dinner.
Sept. 4th 2015 – Our day started in Komarom as the water was to low for our ship to make it all the way to Budapest. In the morning we did a city tour of Budapest and in the after noon we travel to the country side for a horse show by Hungary’s cow boys. We returned to our ship at Komarom for dinner and found out that the water level had risen and that evening we traveled to Budapest on the Danube.

Sept. 3rd 2015 – We visited Bratislava and the Bratislava Castle
Sept. 2nd 2015 – After a walking tour of the city we decide to return to the Spanish Riding School – which is right in the middle of the city for a tour. The English speaking tour would have required an hour wait and would have put us close to missing the ship so we opted to go early with the German speaking group. Becky can understand German. I failed German my freshman year in high school, needless to say I didn’t understand a word that was said. The photos look the same in both German and English as well as any other language. Because we didn’t see the horses in action we decide to purchase the video in the gift shop. The video is in English.
Sept. 2nd 2015 – We did a walking tour of Vienna. We rode the subway from near the location of our ship in to she heart of the city center. After the walking tour we returned on our own to the Spanish Riding School and did a tour before retuning by subway to our ship. The modern part of the city with high rise buildings was across the river from our ship.
