On the morning of March 27, we took a walking tour of Salzburg.
We took a long tour, detailing the intricate history and present day purposes of the Abbey. It is residential for a few monks, but also acts as a school for kids of any religious denomination. Afterwards, we sang a recital in the gold-encrusted church. The acoustics rang effortlessly, bringing a chaperone to tears.
The next morning, we went to Schloß Schönbrunn — a huge palace that had been remodeled during the reign of empress Maria Theresa. We toured the rooms of the palace, explored the grounds, and shopped at the Easter Market.
That afternoon, we headed downtown. We explored the shops, the churches, and saw an award-winning Japanese choir's performance.
As we left Vienna, we stopped at the Vienna Central Cemetery to visit the grave sites of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, and many other famous composers. We sang in the church located on site.
Prague, Czech Republic
After our five-hour drive to Prague, we checked in to our hotel and slept.
On the morning of March 31, we headed out on a walking tour of the city, which included seeing the Castle District, Charles Bridge, and Old Town.
My group wandered the market and relaxed in a cafe, eating endless desserts.
