I expected Prague to be nice because I had heard so many nice comments about this city. It is prettier and more sophisticated than I had anticipated.


We arrived late on Tuesday.

Jake outside hotel on Myslikova street.

I had arranged a private walking tour with a member of the PragueWalker company and Martina did a nice job with the history of the city, its development, political insights, and of course toured us through the many districts pointing out the important landmarks.

Early morning in Old Town, doing a 360...,

Our walking tour with Martina was informative. She explained some of the history of the region and the city’s development, political climate at varying times in history, and of course pointed out many buildings, etc

Castle Town view across the river from Old Town. Jake in the town square posing with the “Gold Scheister”. Russian ladies on holiday enjoying Prague’s special ice cream treat.

There is so much to see in Prague. Here is the “WaterTroll” protecting the flowing river below him. Jake at the “John Lennon Wall”.


At one of the more majestic churches and there are lots of churches, is a holy wax figure. Yes, it is wax and for some reason, which I forget, it is very very very holy. So, over 300 beautiful outfits such as this have been donated to the church to adorn this wax very holy doll. There is even a gold crown adorned with precious stones, diamonds, etc. A holy wax doll, what will they think of next.... a Mr. Frosty that never melted? Maybe in the Ciocalato Cona of the Holy Sepulchre.


The entrance way to the Prague Castle with the guards holding a club and holding a sword.

Panaromic view of Prague. Earliest bronze statue of King George slaying the Dragon. Pssst: I don’t think this really happened. It’s like religion. HaHa
