Last day in Prague

After another good breakfast we checked out of the hotel (leaving our luggage in their locked room) to head up Gellért Hill. We crossed the Danube by the Szabadság híd (Liberty bridge), got some we admired Sziklatemplom (church cave) but being Sunday didn't go in as there were services on. We continued up the hill to the Szabadság szobor (Statue of Liberty) enjoying great views all the way up. After a rest in the shade we wandered around the outside of the Citadella where I gave in & bought a rainbow pashmina & a new hat! We wandered down the north side of the hill via the Saint Gellért Sagredo monument (an eleventh-century bishop who tried to convert the Magyars to Christianity).

We then left Buda for Pest via the Erzsébet híd (Elizabeth Bridge) and after having another delicious traditional meal during which I had palacsinta (hungarian pancakes) with choclate sauce & flambeed with a very generous helping of brandy had a final wander around the centre before collecting our bags & heading to the stop to get the airport bus.
