Christmas Cruising on the Picturesque Danube | Interior Enhancement Group
If you haven't cruised the Danube River during Christmastime, I highly recommend it! I recently returned from a 9-day voyage through Germany and Austria to Prague, and I'm definitely feeling in the holiday spirit! Yes, it's cold there too in December, but the magnificent architecture and churches – which I will write about later – and the Christmas markets make it all worthwhile. I loved that their sprawling markets, with dozens of vendors, are located in the heart of some of Europe's most beautiful cities. The backdrop of 15th and 16th-century architecture – and even older - makes the experience truly unique. Historic Old Town Square Market, Prague This image, above, truly captures the atmosphere of the historic Old Town Square Market in Prague, with the 14th century Church of Our Lady Before Tyn looming in the background. The cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriage and numerous stalls are set against the backdrop of that magnificent church with its 80-meter-tall towers!
