Prague in March

Just home from an amazing trip to Prague what a beautiful and interesting city rich with history and little cobblestone streets that lead to some of the most pretty views I've ever seen.

We explored Prague Castle, saw the Kohl or Lion fountain, Holy Cross Chapel, St. Vitus Cathedral (The most beautiful and majestic church in Prague, its history reflects the beginnings of the Christian culture in the Bohemia. It is also the Royal mausoleum and depositary of the Czech Crown Jewels), St George's Basilica, the oldest surviving church in Prague, stood at the top of the Old Castle Steps looking out at the magnificent views of Prague. We walked over Charles Bridge, past the markets in Old Town Square and the old churches.. to see the Astronomical Clock and the striking of the clock on the hour, marked by the walk of the apostles to music, quite a sight to see. We went for walks in the Royal Garden and around the Summer Palace, where the first tulips grew and went on a cruise around the River Vltava. We went for dinner at Kampa Island, candles, lightbulbs adorned with feathers, views of the river Vltava, homemade chocolates, complimentary port.. if we could have brought this restaurant home we would. The next day we went and had brunch at the Gardens by the castle and took in the last of the views and absorbed the last of the sun...
