Prague Day 2 – 24,580 steps!

Big walking day today but most of our checklist is done!

Me mainlining tea from tiny cups for breakfast!

Cool building with chariots on top.

The St Vitus’s Cathedral in the Prazsky Hrad. This was our first close up view of the Prague Castle. We had gone up the hill that the castle is on, on a funicular to the top which would have amazing gardens if you visited in the spring or summer. Then we walked just below the ridge line around to the castle. This was our first clear view.

Inside the cathedral. The stained glass inside the cathedral is amazing. Since Prague was only bombed once during the war, many of the old buildings and churches remain. This is an amazing example of what can be done with stained glass.

I love flying buttresses and the back of the Cathedral did not disappoint!

Our potatoes on a stick snack! These tasted like fries and would definitely be a fun party food to make!

The start of the Charles Bridge, which is a very cool walking bridge over the river with statues about every 30 ft or so.

Me, Josie and Geoff on the Charles Bridge with the Prague Castle in the background.

The Dancing House.  I love how this house is unique and stands out but just enough. It blends in well with the surrounding buildings so it is interesting but not distracting from its environment.

St Hubert’s statue. Thanks to Jack Bowman, I knew that this statue was here and it was on my list of places to see in Prague if I ever went! It did not disappoint!

The Spanish Synagogue ceiling. We went to the synagogue for a Gershwin concert, which was great. The synagogue is called the Spanish Synagogue because it was designed by a Spaniard who obviously had a lot of influence from the Moors as the styling is very much like what you would find in a mosque.

One of the things that I love about my phone is that it allows me to take 360 photos. Here is  the link to one of today’s 360° pictures

Had a bit of trouble with the sun on this one, but here is the back of the Cathedral.
