We're leaving on a jet plane!!!
All packed and ready to head out in the morning. Home sounds mighty good, especially getting to see tall and short kids:-) We've missed them!
Our adventure today took us by tram to the Charles Bridge, famous for its unique combination of gothic construcion and baroque statues, spanning the Vltava River. Of course there were the hundreds of tourists sharing the bridge with us, along with artists selling their wares of pictures, prints, and crafts. We got to view Prague Venice from the top of the bridge, but didn't wind up going on the river after all. We continued walking on to Old Town Square, with the famous Astronomical Clock adorning the Old Town Hall, and saw other Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo Classical, and Art Noveau styles everywhere. Street musicians were in abundance on this beautiful day, and were delightful to see and hear. Oh yes, the cathedral at the top of the hill that I couldn't think of yesterday was the St. Vitus Cathedral.
I hope y'all have enjoyed this journey with us. Check in again for updated pictures. Another adventure is in the works. Ciao for now!
