Friday and we're off to tour the Prague Castle. It's a huge complex. The tickets are 350Kc (about $14.50 USD) and the tickets are good for two days. We took in St Vitus Cathedral, saw the changing of the guard and wandered through the vast complex. It must have been nice to be reallllly rich back then!!!!
Enjoy the pics!!!!
Saturday we decided to head back to the Old Town, take in the Loreta and finish off the parts of the Prague Castle that we didn't see the day before. We actually thought, being Saturday, that it would be busy but we must have caught both sites before or after tours because they were both less than crowded. Before culture we started with food (we do have our priorities) at a place called Maly Buddha (an Asian type cafe which was very good) and just around the corner from the Loreta.
From Wiki:Loreta is a large pilgrimage destination in Hradčany, a district of Prague, Czech Republic. It consists of a cloister, the church of the Lord’s Birth, a Holy Hut and the clock tower with a famous chime. . We almost bypassed it but I'm glad we didn't.
Loreta admission 150 Kc (about $6.25).
And then it was back to Prague Castle, again at a leisurely pace.
We stayed down in the Old Town and took in a Mozart Concert at the Klementinum Mirror Chapel. There were two musicians and two vocalist - three of whom play for The Prague State Opera. I'm really not an opera aficionado but this was just lovely. Such a nice way to end a great day in Prague. ....I just love this city!!!
