Saint Vitus’s Cathedral is the most important church in the Czech Republic. The cathedral is located entirely inside the walls of Prague Castle. This cathedral reminded me of Strasbourg Cathedral due to the beautiful gothic architecture.
Inside Prague Castle walls just near the cathedral.
Steps going down from the castle back into the city. There are gardens off to the right side but we didn’t get a chance to visit them. It turns out that you must pay to see them and we wouldn’t have been willing to do that anyway.
Each day we passed these puppets in the street market my girls would stop giggling for five minutes or longer. If you clapped your hands hard the witches would start heckling and jumping up and down.
Notice the details on the building.
In Prague, the buildings are works of art.
I knew this photo would be beautiful as soon as I saw this man sketching with this fabulous background.
This couple was enjoying lunch and the magnificent view together on the banks of the river.
My camera didn’t capture the bride completely as she headed into the city hall. There is a small delay between when I click the button and when my camera actually takes the photo. It has caused me to miss more than one ‘perfect picture’.
There were light rains on and off during our last day in Prague. We didn’t mind because it only made the city seem more romantic.
More buildings with painted detailing.
Window shopping in Prague.
Amber and garnets are found in many shop windows. I would have loved to have been able to afford one of the necklaces or bracelets.
Blown glass is another item you will see in Prague shop windows.
Majestic statues watch over mere mortals passing below.
Prague is know for marionettes. The children would stand admiring the puppets from a far. They were too afraid of them to get too close.
Czech Bohemian glass and crystal pieces line some of the best shop windows.
A side street somewhere below Charles Bridge. There is a great park near here where the children played while we rested watching Charles Bridge and the boats.
A tram in Prague.
The trams are not overly crowded and are very clean. In fact, I found Prague to be as clean as most of the cities in Switzerland.
Next, I will post some of our photos from the Prague Zoo and some random photos making it the last post about Prague.
