Prague Castle

11 Dec

Prague Castle is set on a high hill across the Vltava river from Old Town and Wenceslas Square. It is a complex of buildings representing a sweep of history and architecture. We spent the afternoon exploring with our knowledgable guides. Pictures include our group ascending an escalator to catch a tram; approaching the castle walls; happy travelers after lunch at the Vikarka Restaurant inside the walls; architecture from romanesque and gothic, to renaissance and baroque; Mucha stained glass inside the cathedral; the royal crypt in the cathedral; the immense interior and exterior of the Cathedral of St. Vitus.
