The stop we used led us to a rear entrance that wound down to the leafy garden in the moat.
The first visit was to the St Vitus Cathedral. It is a late Gothic structure which was finished only in the early 20th century. The nave is long and high.
The next stop was the Palace. This was the scene of the famous "Defenestration of Prague" which sparked the beginning of the 30 Years War in the 17th century. Protestants threw two Catholic governors out this very window. The governors landed in a pile of dung which saved their lives. What a story!
Finally we visited the Golden Lane where goldsmiths labored in the past, and where artisans sell their work today.
We descended the steep stairway that led to the river. Peter whistled snatches of "The Moldau" as we came to the edge of the river.
We were close to our hotel, so we made a final stop for ice cream and gazed back at the castle across the river before we headed to our room to put our feet up and make some phone calls.
After some down time we found the a restaurant named Nuances in the Old Town for a fabulous dinner. We watched the three chefs concentrating on each plate. My pork dish was outstanding as was Peter's goulash.
