Prague, Czech Republic

P1160324 P1160105

All the hype is justified – Prague is perhaps the most beautiful city in the world.  Our five days here rushed by as we went back and forth across the Vltava River to see the sights and experience some of what Prague has to offer.  We saw the usual tourist attractions like the enormous Castle complex that towers over the city, the fantastic old town square, and block after block of ornate, well-preserved buildings.   And there’s no shortage of things to do after dark too.  We saw a hot blues band in the grungy Pop Museum, the classy Prague Big Band at the Reduta Jazz Club, the show Black Box at the Image black light Theatre, and a classical music concert at the Spanish Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter.  Perhaps the best of the museums was the Convent of St Agnes dating from the 13th century, now housing the Czech National Gallery’s fabulous collection of Bohemian and Central European medieval art from the 13th to mid-16th centuries.
