The architecture and scenery are breathtaking and this is definitely a tourist destination with every kind of experience catered for although it's still not overdone.
On the Stare Mesto (Old Town) side of Charles Bridge narrow and crowded streets lead to Starometske nam (the main square) where on the clock tower of the old town hall the astronomical clock entertains the crowds on the hour with its parade of apostles and a bell ringing skeleton! It was amazing how the crowds suddenly appeared and applauded the event each time then swiftly dispersed once more!
We got stuck into the local Czech cuisine serenaded by some old fellas singing traditional Czech songs which we later found out were naughty! Found we aren't big fans of the bread and potato dumplings, but Matt is loving the beer!
On the way to Vienna today via Brno which is in the South of the country, it's nice to have a day off from walking to let our tired and aching feet recover. Looking forward to seeing what Austria's got to bring to the party....
