Armchair travel experience that lets you explore the world from your living room. We miss the smell of jet fuel as much as an island breeze. And while those things might not be in the cards for most of us at the moment, virtual travel can at least fill a void until we can finally resume globetrotting.
Sunday April 25 1PM EST / 7PM CET, explore Prague from the comfort of home with fellow Yale woman, Bonita Rhoads, co-founder of Insight Cities, a network of local historian guides in Central Europe.
This live stream tour enables us to cross the Charles Bridge, symbol of Prague, built by Emperor Charles IV over 650 years ago. Enjoying fabulous river views of Prague’s Castle, National Theatre and other famous sites on the Vltava banks, we learn about the Czech capital, from medieval to modern eras. Moving on through the winding streets of Old Town past Renaissance house signs, we arrive at Old Town Square with its fabled Astronomical Clock, the soaring Gothic towers of Tyn Church, the art nouveau Jan Hus monument and the balcony from which the first communist president, Klement Gottwald, declared the Cold War dictatorship of 1948. At each major site, we pause for questions and discussion.
