Prague II: Karlův Most & Pražský Hrad

There are two places in Prague which every visitor is obligated to see: The Charles Bridge (Karlův most) and Prague Castle (Pražský hrad).

The bridge is easy - you're bound to cross the Vltava at some point, and when you do you'll probably see it on your immediate left or right (only pedestrians are allowed to cross on it). The Castle is a little more challenging. I suggest walking to it, since it's the best way to see more of the city and get a spectacular view of the valley. However, it is slightly up hill and there are a few stairs towards the top. No worries though - most people won't have a problem with the trek. Inside the palace is the St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas, and St. Adalbert Cathedral. We got a little carried away touring the cathedral, and as such completely missed the tours given inside the palace. So, be aware: Prague Castle is wonderful, but don't forget to actually go in it!

I think the simplest way to do this is photo-album style. You can google them yourselves if you want more details, and you can ask me (please sign or in some way indicate who you are on the comments!) to explain the photos. OK, here we go...

It's called punctuation, Mom. You should try it some time. And spell check too.

Glad you approve!

It's called tact, Ray. You should try it some time.
