Visit to Praha. (pictures)
Advertisements [?]
Spent the day in Prague. Magnificent city.

Usual population about 1.4 million, but I'd say the number was at least twice that during my visit on Saturday.


RAIN....lots and lots of rain. Ankle deep in some places. People were using everything and anything to stay as dry as possible...a losing battle.

Mixture of Old Town/New Town pictures below. (Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, the Vltava River, Wenceslas Square, etc..)

A small sampling...




Prague Castle (early morning fog)


















Even the statue looks resigned to the wet.


























































Lots of different spires from different time periods.




Wall of Vines








Prague Astronomical Clock. We got to see the top of the hour action. The blue windows open and the apostles all take a turn peering out the windows. To the right is a skeleton - or the "death knell"




We're sitting at the driest table, drinking something called a "Tiger Latte" - think chai tea but with coffee...it was beyond yummy!














"Rock and Roll!"





Off the wall...
