I meant to get these up a while ago, but ran into technical difficulties with the way I wanted to put them out there. I’m just going to put them up, so no slideshow for now, sorry!
Here’s the view from our room the first night at Unitas.
More Unitas at night
Here we are (terrible picture of us I know) in Old Town by the clock.
The crowds at the clock when it is about do its thing are intense. Hand on your wallet for sure!
Old Town Prague (I might be looking the wrong way in this photo)
Our Lady before Týn church is in Old Town too. This is about a 5 minute walk from our hotel. Tycho Brahe is buried here!!
Wenceslas Square – lots of shopping and people watching.
Street view on Wenceslas Square. Not where I’d want to stay, but the hotel looked cool.
Brian on the Vltava
Gretchen on the Vltava
Horses at the National Theater. Misha told us that this was the first time that the Czech people were able to build their own theater to perform in their language. Beautiful building on the Vltava river, next time we will go see something here for sure.
Transit wires near the National Theater
Building on the castle grounds
Castle grounds – there used to be hunting here (cannot remember if there still is or not)
Old Town at night
Old Town at night – just a short walk from our rooms
Changing of the guards at the castle. It was super crowded and the crowds didn’t move for the soldiers. It was a bit funny how close they had to get to the people in the crowd, and one poor soldier watching it couldn’t keep a straight face. I think he got in a bit of trouble for that, which is too bad, it was really really funny (the crowd and then his reaction).
Anyhow, more to come. I’d rather that it was a slideshow format but I need to get some time to research and test the plugins first. Really love Prague, and Misha helped us find so much.
