PRAGUE

After the wedding Mom, Dad, Beth and I went to Prague. I love Prague, so here is a small sample of what we saw.










Charles Bridge with the Prague Castle in the background



You could spend a whole day wondering around all the street alleys.











































































Mom and I in the vineyard of the Prague Castle.










PRAGUE CASTLE

This is the front of the Cathedral in the Prague Castle. It was so large I could only get the top half of it in a picture, and the bottom half would have had to be in three separate pictures.















The next three pictures are inside the Cathedral.





































































Back side of the Cathedral in the Prague Castle.


















Golden Lane in the Prague Castle. Now it is all shops, but it used to be where servants lived.





















Looking at the Pectin Tower (on the hill in the middle) from the castle.





















Zoomed in the the Charles Bridge from the castle.






















Changing of the guards ceremony.























Front entrance to the Prague Castle.























PECTIN TOWER

Mom and Dad part way up the hill we climbed to get to the tower. (Once we were at the top of the hill dad saw a trolley we could have rode up!)

























Every time we thought we were almost to the top there was a corner and another long set of stairs! Here is somewhere towards the begining.

























Coming up the Pectin tower. Once we had climbed the hill the we still had to climb the spiral staircase up the outside of the tower.





























Views from the tower.



























The Prague Castle Cathedral with the Castle Buildings around it.





























The Pectin Tower. You can kinda see the spiral staircase we climbed going around it. I can't believe mom actually made it to the top with her fear of heights!





























CEMETERY IN THE OLD JEWISH GHETTO































































































OLD TOWN SQUARE


Astronomical Clock- it rings every hour and the little guy on it rings his bell, and little people come out of the windows on top.


































Astronomical Clock is at the bottom of this tower.







































































































CHARLES BRIDGE


This is my friend Jean on the bridge from when her and I went to Prague and Munich a couple years ago.











































Charles Bridge is on the right and the castle is in the back.





































Enterance to the bridge
