Below left – friendly bay horse nearest camera “suffered” a goodly cuddle from me, while his disapproving scowling owner/driver looked on – and I came away smelling nicely horsey :-)~
Below right – a bit of irresitable automotive bling ;-) … Laurin and Klement
Late in the afternoon, and “Charles Bridge” is still jam-packed with (“expletive!”) tourists,
as my fella called ’m ;-) In his mind, were not tourists, we were travellers :-)
The very beautiful Baroque in style, Hanavsky Pavilion
Images below, post-ed photo-stitches of three and two images respectively

… inside …
I’m sure that standing on a park bench will make all the difference to the image …?
What appeared on our tourist map, err I mean traveller’s map, as a site of ‘significance’,
turned out to be a Summer ‘residence’, otherwise known as ‘The Belvedere’
Or “Queen Anne’s Summer Palace” … we saw only the lower ‘walled garden’, full of fig plants …
… not knowing there was ohhhh so much more up those stairs! ;-)
Oh well, we’ll just have to have a 2nd look next visit – hopefully in 2013! :-D
Hehe ;-) … waiting for me – again ;-)) … … … below – it looks rickety, but it wasn’t :-)
Behind the ‘back fence’ … of The Belvedere …
Spots and fractals … … … and the “Old” Prague Castle steps
Now a stair case! Below, only one entry direction allowed – top to bottom!
The grey textured ‘mass’ in the middle (we found out the next day) is a HUGE sculptured wall!
One of two completely motionless unwavering unsmiling Prague Castle guards
… I wondered how many 100’s of images per day get taken of them ;-)
Just some of the exquisite – and grotesque! – details, of the glorious St.Vitus Cathedral
… thank you, Wiki :-)
