One of the more popular attractions is the Astronomical Clock which was installed in the 1400’s. On the hour, crowds gather as the clock rings and the apostles appear in the windows and the rooster flaps its wings while crowing. When you think about how this clock was built and was animated like this in the 1400’s it’s pretty amazing.
One day we adventured our way around the city in order to find some statues/art by Czech sculptor David Cerny. After seeing some posts about some of his work found all throughout Prague we set out with a list to see which ones we could find. Unfortunately, we discovered about half of them were either gone or too hard to find. Along our journey we also found some other sculptures by other artists as well.
It was a relaxing time and Prague has a lot to explore and find as you wander through the various streets and alleys. Like this narrow passage way complete with crossing signal.
What trip to Prague would be complete without a visit to the John Lennon wall? It was even fun to check back in a day and see what had changed on the wall since then.
Other random explorations included a ride on the historic trolley #91 through various parts of Prague…
…a visit to the Jewish cemetary, an entertaining black light theater show, and a walk along the Charles bridge at night.
Overall, it was a fun and recharging trip to see and explore a new place and learn new things! Even though the weather wasn’t pleasant when we visited, I’d definitely visit in the future and would stay here again, where it was quiet and away from the busy-touristy-noise.
