Eastern Beauty


After Berlin we took the train to Prague. It was a lovely scenic ride along a river valley. Once in Prague our jaws dropped open at the sights. It was difficult not to take photos of absolutely everything. The intricate detail on the buildings was magnificent. I can now see why people rave about Old World architecture. Here are a few street scenes:

This is the famous Wencelas Square, where thousands have gathered over the centuries, beginning with horse trading in the 13th century and continuing up to 1989 when Communism came to and end.

We went to the Prague Opera House to see the ballet Cinderella. The girls were captivated from start to finish. It was a lovely show and we felt very cultured in our box seats in such a grand theatre.
