Looking Up, Looking Down - Looking Everywhere

Everyone said we would love Prague...

and we do! Here looking down from the castle towards the old town across the red roof tops.

We need to come back when they're snow-covered. 

Some putti at the castle

and the towers so reminiscent of Disney films. A well marked WC - very useful where beer is as plentiful as water. A great pity that I never drink beer though the rest of the family love it.

The view from our hotel window.

More roofs from near the river  - you can almost see the working water wheel center right.

People walking across the Charles Bridge. So many images coming  at me at once. Compare and contrast with Vienna last year - both former Austro-Hungarian Empire, only two hundred miles apart, both prosperous and tourist-filled. Much to think about - and a great deal to eat.


  1. Beautiful setting! I hope you are having a great time/

  2. How gorgeous. I would love to visit. I heard once, but don't know if it's true, that Prague is the most haunted city in Europe. Or maybe that is Budapest.

  3. Lovely glimpses of a beautiful city Elizabeth - one I have never visited.

  4. I am gobsmacked !
    This is a beautiful post.

    cheers, parsnip

  5. Ahh, I am called there with you. Just beautiful.

  6. Elizabeth, I am luxuriating in the visual feast you've brought us in these posts from Prague.

    Yes, it appears that those folks who said you'd love the place were spot on. Are you finding a way to extend this trip? xo

  7. One of those places I've always wanted to go to but never have. Bit like NY really. Thanks Elizabeth. Beautiful pics of course.

  8. Great photos. I wonder where you stayed. We stayed in supposedly a 4 star hotel at the top of the hill and it was a real shock but then Prague had only just broken from the Soviet Union.


I look forward to hearing from you!
