Prague Day 1 Pictures

Here are a few of yesterday's pictures.

This is the astronomical clock located on the Old Town Hall.





While we were in the Old Town Square, a wedding party was getting pictures. Here is the bride giving schoolchildren gifts of cookies. It must be a local tradition. Obviously, her mother-in-law did not make her a cape to keep warm.



A view of Tyn Church from the Old Town Hall Tower.



Jake enjoying his $1 pint of Czech beer.



Statues on the Charles Bridge over the Vltava River.





The sunset from the window of our hostel.

The pictures are wonderful. The new camera works quite well. Andrea do you remember our conversation with Dave Wilburn at Taco Bell a few days before you left? Did you get your camera insured??

Love you both,
Mom

What a beautiful sunset! This evening we were discussing what areas we'd like to visit while we're in Holland, and Alex said he'd never really wanted to go to Eastern Europe. So I showed him some of your pictures, and I think he's changed his mind! The Eastern European Department of Tourism thanks you.

Yes, Prague is wonderful. I recently visited the City of Prague. Prague is beautiful city with architecture going back to the middle ages. I was impressed by the Prague castle, the old town's powder gate tower and the famous astronomical clock. I had a chance to explore the Jewish quarter, also fascinating (the Spanish synagogue is not to be missed). St. Vitus's Cathedral rivals Notre Dame as a massive, buttressed church: it also houses the tomb of "Good King Wenceslas".
