Perusing Prague – The Charles Bridge


A few weeks ago I was sent to work in the random little Czech town of Kadan.  While it wasn’t a horribly exciting place, it was only a 90-minute drive from an incredibly horribly exciting place: Prague.

I spent about 8 hours there last summer-ish; just a little day trip from some other random town where I was working, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Incredibly beautiful city.  So, I did what I could, tweaked the travel arrangements and bent my schedule and worked it out so I could spend two nights screwing around and checking out the city before I had to start the job.

I made the 7 hour drive from Bergheim, Germany, my home away from home, and arrived in Prague late in the evening of whatever day it was. I grabbed the camera, a 4-pack of Pilsner Urquell, strapped on my backpack and set out.

The first stop, and well the only stop, of the evening was the Charles Bridge.  A stupid pretty  14th century stone bridge that spans the Vltava River in the heart of the city.  Have a look, and, if you feel so inclined, click on any of the images to get to a little carousel gallery thing.

That was all for my first little adventure.  Come back over the next few days and we’ll wander around the city and check out the similarly impressive Prague Castle.

Don’t be a stranger.

  1. Just caught up on two and a half weeks of your blog posts. Gorgeous as usual!! I’m so impressed by your pictures every time. Even some of the more basic things you can capture in a way that makes them spectacular.

Enough about me, what do you think?
