The photos below were taken from the tower at at the Old Town Hall in Prague.
Those beautifully colored buildings with amazing architectural details? Everywhere in Old Prague. Truly a stunning city. Would love to go back and shoot for days.
I had to turn the camera to take everything in. Sorry if it gives you vertigo. I’m not a fan of heights, but this tower didn’t bother me at all.
The statue depicts religious reformer Jan Hus, who was burned at the stake for his beliefs. Hus opposed Vatican control of the church and later became a symbol of anti-Habsburg rule. The memorial was erected on July 6, 1915 to mark the 500th anniversary of his death.
As you can see, the square was a tiny bit crowded. We were there in July, peak tourist season, and the city was packed. It was OK in the early morning, but after that, wall-to-wall people. I’d like to see the city in the winter with snow and fewer tourists.
The large squares are umbrellas for outdoor cafes.
Seriously, if you get the chance, go see Prague. This city will not disappoint.
Great weekend, everyone!
Oh Prague how I miss thee! Perfect sunny afternoons on the Vltava.
Sounds wonderful. 🙂
I have never been to Prague yet, but dreaming about it! Your photos made my wish stronger!
I consider it a must-see.
Oh yes! I’d love to go to Prague! I will take your advice though and visit in the off season. That square looks pretty crowded.
Jackie, it was actually more crowded in the streets. Sometimes you just had to go with the tide.
Ohh lovely photos! The city looks absolutely gorgeous!
I’ve been twice in autumn. Funny that your photos should be so colorful. I remember it rather dark, blakc and white almost, while BUdapest is more colourful.
That is funny. These were taken on a very sunny day, so that helped. A lot of the buildings were blackened with age, but not this section. I would love to go back in autumn.
Yes. If you’re an architecture buff, this is the place to be.
