Prague is Ryan’s mom’s favorite city in Europe, and we can see why. Everyone forgot to bomb it during the wars, so it’s one of the best collections of preserved architecture from across the ages. That being said, the first part we visited was the huge forested park, just as the leaves were changing.
There in the distance sits Prague Castle on its hill.
Magically we transport within the castle walls. Here are some views in and around the biggest castle in the world.
Karen said it looks like a poofy dress. Ryan said it’s a beard. Who is correct? Don’t delay, vote today.
We couldn’t get a good angle of the cathedral inside the castle, but we found this cool gingerbread version in a shop in town.
Here we are at the Charles Bridge, and there’s a swan, and there’s the really great Bridge Band.
At the other end of the bridge, up above the archway, a horn quartet was playing traditional fanfares. Three trombones and a tuba. Look closely!
The famous Astronomical Clock, and a couple glimpses of Old Town Square.
The less famous statue of more famous author Franz Kafka.
Prague was chilly, so we got some hot mulled wine, a common cold-weather treat across Europe. Here Karen tries to drink it through her nose.
Powder Tower at night.
Lastly, a couple of Ryan’s best sketches yet, according to Ryan, who is the recognized authority on the subject.
