St Peter and Paul Basilica in Vysehrad
We joined lots of tourists waiting for the apostles to show in the astronomical clock at the old town hall
This is what we were all waiting for, the apostles showing in the windows above the clock
Old market square with the old town hall
The tower of the Old Town Hall gives not only a great view over the city centre, it also makes it possible to 'spy' on all the people below: street artists, Hara Krishna parade, stag party groups, and of course lots of tourists. Here a few photos from the tower.

The soap bubbles were very popular with the children
In the evening we watched a show at one of the black light theatres. Afterwards they showed their 'secrets'.
Prague by night: the gothic Powder Tower
The next day we started at the Náplavka farmer's market along the river, where we gathered our breakfast from some of the market stalls, good coffee, crepe with lemon and a sausage roll. We continued our walk across the river to Petrín garden where we walked up to the view tower and monastery at the top of the hill. A visit to Prague castle and it's huge St Vitus cathedral is of course compulsory, even though the cathedral was closed unfortunately. Then on to Letenska park with it's large metronome, and back across the river to the old city centre, the Jewish quarters, afternoon coffee and an excellent meal in Estrella restaurant.
