Prague in images

We spent three days in Prague, exploring, eating and drinking. Not much text in this post; just lots of images. We’ve include links to Wikipedia entries for those of you who are curious — and have lots of time on your hands. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this virtual tasting of Prague.

The Vltava River organizes the experience of the Old Town.

The Charles Bridge connects the Old Town and Prague Castle. It is the major visitor thoroughfare between the districts.

Astronomical Clock: Every hour, the clock animates. Crowds form, holding phones high, in anticipation. Then everyone says, “That’s it?” But imagine what this was like in the 15th century!

Church of Our Lady before Týn: Before Disney and Harry Potter.

Prague Castle is an entire town that overlooks the rest of the city. All the history of Prague has played out here.

St Vitus Cathedral is the center-piece of the castle. The west half (with the choir) is ancient; the east half was completed in the early 20th century. From real gothic to neo-gothic. Turn-of-the-20th-century artists designed the luminous stained glass windows.

St George’s Basilica is also in the Castle

Church of Our Lady of the Snows is in the lower Old Town. Beautiful gothic nave into which was pushed an elaborate baroque altar piece.

Swans add fairy-tale spice to the Vltava River.

Crystal and glass shops are everywhere. This one is beyond bling.
