Prague has a cityscape that fairy tales are made of. Given the number of people who were clearly not from the local area, it seems everyone has heard and come to check it out.
I walked all over Prague, through the old town, along the Vltava river, up into the grounds of the castle and back to the delightful apartment I was staying in. It was hot, crowded and utterly gorgeous.
One of the highlights, and the tower from which the elevated images in the gallery below were taken was the Klementium a group of historical buildings the centrepiece of which is the baroque library hall, an image of which I’d seen online and which had captivated me. It was top of my list to visit and I wasn’t disappointed. Of course, you can’t take photos inside the Klementium, so the image below is one found courtesy of Bruno Delzant.
I had two days there, I could have walked the town twice but on day two, opted instead for a quiet spot on the banks of Shooters Island, in the middle of the Vltava River where I drank a beer or two, read a book and generally soaked up the delicious atmosphere.
Prague is beautiful, there is way too much to be seen than can be done in a couple of days!
