Step back in time to a medieval city
20.12.2010 49 °F
We had a very comfortable train ride to Prague. A very modern train with good seats.
Prague's population is 1.2M compared to Vienna 1.6M. Not much difference in population from the medieval city of Prague and the capital of the empire, Vienna.
I did not realize that Mozart spent time in Prague as well as Salzburg and Vienna and was much loved by the people of Prague who gave him a funeral with over 4000 people attending. Don Giovanni was first performed here.
There is a very nice podcast on Prague at this site. Look down the page to find it. I think you will find it entertaining!
We had very nice fall days to enjoy the sights.
Views of the rooftops
Interesting shop signs
Musician on the bridge
Famous clock tower
Lots of wooden toys and puppets
Bohemian cut crystal
Prague has a lot of Art Deco construction and the municipal hall is a grand example. I just wish we could have attended a concert. The restaurant is especially lovely.
Prague is a lovely city and we enjoyed our visit very much. So now back to Istanbul.
