One of the small towns you see along the Danube. This one had a old abbey and a ruined fortress up on the hill. We had a walking tour here.
The impressive medieval town of Cesky Krumlov in Bohemia, Czech Republic. The buildings have all been restored since the Soviet period.
Another view of Cesky Krumlov, from the castle. We had lunch at the tables outside the building at the bottom left, right by the bridge.
After our cruise, we visted more countries by train. This is a view of some of the nicely restored buildings in the old town square in Prague.
Prague from the top of the tower in the old town square.
We spent one night in Dresden, Germany. The city was almost completely leveled in the war but has been nicely rebuilt.
The medieval town of Rothenburg, Germany. It was spared in the war so most of the buildings are original.
Nymphenburg Palace, summer home of the 18th century Bavarian royalty, in Munich.
We took a quick flight up to Helsinki to watch Canada's game against France at the World Hockey Championships.
Back in Germany, the Brandenburg Gates in Berlin, taken from the former East Germany side.
The Bundestag, German Parliament, in Berlin.
The old town in Warsaw, Poland wasn't too large. We also got there on a cold Sunday morning so there wasn't much going on.
