|Lush green Karlovo Namesti Garden on our way to Prague|
We spent some time feeling the beauty and the verve of Prague. With some offices in vicinity, it made up an eclectic mix of office goers and toddlers enjoying Sun. We decided to walk our way to Old Town instead of taking a Tram. It was a judicious decision, as we crossed some of the most breathtaking and beautiful Gothic architecture along the 3.5 odd kms. linear track enroute.
|Tram is effective, but we chose to be on feet on the first day.|
|Well – That was a Statue ! (On our way to Old Town)|

|Old Town Square – Prague|
|Old Town, Prague|
|Inviting Cobbled streets of Prague|
The Square lies between Charles Bridge and Wenceslas Square. Historically, the Old town, was separated by river Vltava (Over which Charles Bridge is constructed) forming precinct on one of the sides. The river still flows with its immense virility. Charles Bridge can offer some breathtakingly gorgeous views of Vltava. Especially around the hours of dusk. (There are some river cruises also available, but then, you’ll get far better cruises in Austria and Germany, so better to avoid the cruise part here in Prague if you are planning to be in these neighboring countries.) The best way to explore the Square is to begin early in the day. Earlier the better. The square is abuzz with energy of all the age groups. There are people enjoying their snacks around the array of beautiful flowers.
Kids playing around the large bubbles.
|Bubbles in the Sky – Kids love them !|
Men manifesting themselves in statues to garner attention by spurt of their activities.
|Now – Two’s a team|
|Take that !!|
Odd Social gatherings. Marketing and Advertising are also common.
Then, there are people playing wonderful (read : out of world) music(traditional gypsy style) with clinically accurate beats and brave vocals for the space. Last but not the least, there are people simply enjoying their Camelot under the Sun.
