Photographing the Essence of Prague, Day 6

The view from Petrin Hill
Today in Prague we started out with an elevated view next to the Havana Pavilion. We were able to capture the famous view of the multiple bridges spanning the Vltava River. Once we created our pictures we traveled to the Prague Castle. As the seat of the Prague monarchy and the current office of the President, it is a very important historical site. We climbed all two hundred and eighty five steps to the top of the castle tower. Here we experienced one of the highest views in all of Prague. After our hike we got a tour of the San Vitus Cathedral and the Old Royal Palace, and then visited the Golden Lane.  We left the castle area through the New World, listened to the bells of Loretto, and then found a cafe in which to warm up.   We walked home via Petrin Hill, from which we had a gorgeous, sunlit panoramic view of the castle and Prague.

This evening a few of us chose to go to see Figaro at the Estates Theatre, while others chose to have  more leisurely evening and catch up on their photo editing.
