|This is the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall. The Gallery has 105 paintings by artist from all over the world.|
|The larger cobble stone is where the wall once stood.|
|The Zeughaus, now a museum. TV Tower in the distance.|
Check Point Charlie is the crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin, and important area during the Cold War. We went to the museum that has artifacts from East and West Berlin.
|We loved Prague! We did get some rain and to see the city with misty nights made it even more magical. Prague escaped the bombs of World War II so many of the buildings are original and didn't have damage that the other cities we visited had.|
|We watched the changing of the guard in front of the Prague Palace|
The Basilica of Prague Palace
We had lunch at a cafe near the Prague Clock Tower. The tight quarters around the square and cobblestone streets made it so charming.
|Prague is well known for it's amazing marionettes. I took Greg to lots of marionette shops. :)|
|We loved the Art History Museum|
|The cutest lady at the Farmers Market|
|Now that's a piece of Cheese!|

|We spent some time in Szentendre, a quaint riverside town near Budapest. We did some shopping and had a traditional Hungarian dinner.|
|Our souvenirs from Hungary...|

We took a night cruise on the Danube and had beautiful views of the Royal Palace. Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen at night.
|The Chain Bridge crosses the Danube and seperates Buda and Pest|
|Matthias Church across the bridge in Buda|

|Relaxing at Margaret Island|
|We stopped for lunch in a charming town called Banska Bystricain in Slovakia.|
|Crossing the border from Slovakia into Poland. They say the traffic was really bad because of 9-11.|
We were in Eastern Europe in 2001. It was a while ago but I remember feeling like we were in a time warp by the way people dressed and the cars still on the road but that made our experience all the more interesting.
|How cute is this couple!|

|People were transported to Auschwitz from all over Natzi-occupied Europe by train.|
