Friday/ a ‘4×6’ escape to Prague

I found this picture of Prague on a lamp post here on 13th Ave.
Regrettably, I have not been the beautiful capital of the Czech Republic — at least not yet.
I had a chance to go there while I was working in Bratislava, Slovakia, in 2008. Bratislava is a 4 hour train ride away.

The stone arch bridge in the photo is the Charles Bridge. Construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and was completed almost 50 years later! The river is the Vltava. The light green dome just to the right of the bridge tower is that of the St Francis of Assisi Church.  [Screen shot from Google Street View].

  1. I was in both Prague and Bratislava about 5 years ago. Beautiful cities, although my favorite on that trip was Budapest.

    1. Yes, I loved Budapest! Went there for 3 or 4 weekends in a row in 2008. Some beautiful buildings right there on the Danube river. One of my favorites is the one called Gresham Palace that houses the Four Seasons Hotel.
