The Joy of Trains

This post is to be filed under 'other places'. We are in the Czech Republic where my husband's family came from over a hundred years ago.

Here is Prague railway station in all it's art nouveau glory

where we are to set out on a small adventure.

These are the old ticket windows - the new station is below ground level and very modern Euro-chic.

The original lobby with Austro-Hungarian shields. 

Then the trains with links to all parts of Europe - so freighted with history.

Leaving the city behind

and the old snack bar, we arrive at Kutna Hora

where we discover a magical city 

that reminds me a little of a Tuscan hill town and I'll write more about tomorrow.


  1. I've heard Prague is a beautiful city. Looking forward to you showing us more.

  2. What a wonderful start to the trip.
    The Train Station is beautiful.

    Love the tinted castle (?) photo. Looking forward to your next post.

    cheers, parsnip


I look forward to hearing from you!
