Stunning Prague! More from my summer backpacking around Europe.

Oh amazing Prague.  Touristy, yes...but very much worth it.  The architecture and history is so inspiring.  It's the largest city of the Czech Republic, 14th largest in Europe, and historical center of Bohemia.  It's population is about 1.3million.



 The lively and beautiful Old Town Square.

A view from the Charles Bridge, a big tourist spot in Prague.  It spans the  Vltava river.
All of the red rooftops are so beautiful.

The gothic St. Vitus Cathedral


The Cathedral's exterior.

Sadly, the Golden Road was closed, and I had really wanted to see the tiny historical houses.


Beautiful facade's abound in Prague

Prague's Astronomical Clock was first installed in 1410.  It's the oldest one still working.

These pictures don't begin to give justice to the beauty of Prague.  Definitely put it toward the top of your list of places to visit!

Thanks to wonderful future hubby for all of the fantastic photography he did during our trip!
