Prague - part 4

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, we 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 hill-top 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 that’s 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 :-)

    Delicious and juicy architectural details, in particular I LOVE the first one and the colour one of the interior of the church, beautiful, beautiful captures!

    Ell, what an extraordinary time you must have had based on these stunning shots! It looks just like a travel magazine spread on why you should visit Prague! You should consider promoting that to their minister of travel. Seriously…:~)

    An excellent tour Ell. That’s another place I don’t have to go to now. :)

  • Thank you Jazz, but am not done yet with Prague :-)))
    Hope some of these images have piqued your interest though – Prague is definitely a must-see place!!! :-D
