A Millenium of History

I visited Prague in 2002 with a small group of band students. It was a great trip, but I really looked forward to visiting again as an adult with no responsibilities. The city was just as beautiful as I remembered.

amazing architecture

 

interesting statues

This sculpture is in front of the Franz Kafka Museum. The basin the two men are peeing into is in the shape of the Czech Republic. Provocative.IMG_4754

The Petrin Lookout Tower was built as a mini Eiffel Tower in 1891 for the Jubilee Exhibition. The framework is 208 feet tall and sits on Petrin Hill which is 1043 feet high. Ride the funicular up the hill and climb the 299 steps. The view is spectacular.

The lights and the and the Christmas Markets were amazing!
