Precious Prague...................


 Visiting Prague has been a nonstop photo op - every view is breathtaking. I'm quite exhausted from walking the cobblestones yesterday after arriving from Vienna, and then much of today.
Here are some pics which I hope give you an idea as to the magnificence of this city. 

 Old Town Powder Gate


Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square ~ performance at the top of each hour.



Church of Our Lady Before Tyn ~ 1385 Catholic Gothic church ~ dominates a large portion of Old Town Square.


Prague Castle across the Vltava River at dusk.......

.....and a beautiful sunset welcomed us to this gorgeous city.

Statues along the Charles Bridge were illuminated by the setting sun - crowds of people were on the bridge enjoying a lovely evening.




Much more to come - today was overcast, tomorrow may be wet, but we hope to see much more of the city before leaving.

  1. It is a very beautiful city. I love the colouring of the buildings in the light especially at sunset. It's so soft. I'm glad you're enjoying your trip. Take care. Hugs, Pamela

  2. I would have been mesmerized by the clock.
    The building is several pictures with the red tile roof almost had a feel of the Oriental.
    Everything is lovely.

  3. Every day is more stunning that the last - it really boggles my American mind to see such history preserved in Europe - we have so little of it and value it so lightly. Amazing photos.

  4. While on her OE years ago my daughter bought me a book in Prague "Prague - an Historic Town" - it's on my coffee table so I often flick through it.

    Your photos show all the beauty of the old town and Charles bridge Mary - breathtaking.
    Enjoy the rest of your time in Europe - Oh I envy you - please blow kisses to my family as you fly over France!
    Much love

  8. I remember Old Town Square perfectly - the Astronomical Clock is superb isn't it? Love your evening photos - the Charles Bridge is a fascinating place to walk isn't it?
