prague

Prague is a spectacular place, with a history stretching from the Medieval up to the Soviet, and is a vibrant place today. The result has captured an amazing array of architecture and places of historical importance. It’s central location in Europe has ensured that it has been both the capture and the captured. It has been the birthplace of many revolutions and protests. The city today is still on the cutting edge, and modern Prague has emerged as a destination for intellectuals and tourists alike.

In the middle of my trip to Italy, I decided to take a left turn detour and took a short 1 hour flight north over the Alps to the Czech city of Prague. I had some local friends to visit – and another good friend from England came over to meet me – so a weekend in Prague was the perfect vacation within a vacation. The first two days were spent mostly with a frosty beverage in the hand that would normally have held my trusty camera – this included catching the Canada vs Germany game at the O2 Arena as part of the World Hockey Championships. That part of the adventure was mostly documented here; “The Weekend in Prague”.

But on the third day we kicked into “tourist mode”, and these are the resulting photos.
