Our first priority for Monday was a visit to the Mucha Museum, something we didn’t see in our prior visit in 2011. The 30-minute film was very informative, and his works–including his sketches and photos–are just stunning.

One of the things I love about Prague is the tickets themselves are works of art.

A bus ride up the hill to Vysehrad, where we roamed the park. The Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul was stunning.

In its shadow is the cemetery where many famous people from Czech history lie, including Alphonse Mucha.

The views from Vysehrad are stunning, and it wasn’t as crowded as the Strahov Monastery was.

Dinner was at the Michelin restaurant Le Degustation next to our hotel. We opted for the six-course meal with the wine pairings. A very expensive outing, but a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
