Since we were in the neighborhood we thought it might be nice to stop in Prague for a couple of days. Our friend Paul lived here for 10 years and recently moved to Porto declaring Prague "was over." True. We rented an apartment below the castle and near Strahov Monastic Brewery (talk about happy accidents). Below is our story.

Thank to the monks The Strahov Monastic Brewery brewed a nice English style IPA and served up some mouthwatering chow. This would be our mess hall while in town.

Tower at the Mala Strana end of Charles Bridge (opposite end). Below is information regarding the bridge.
A famous historical bridge crossing the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic. It's construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished on the beginning of 15th century. As the only means of crossing the river in Prague, Charles Bridge used to be the most important connection between the Old Town, Prague Castle and adjacent areas till 1841. The bridge is 516 metres long and nearly 10m wide, resting on 16 arches shielded by ice guards. It is protected by three bridge towers, two of them on the Lesser Quarter side and the third one on the Old Town side. The bridge is decorated by a continuous alley of 30 statues and statuaries, most of them baroque-style, erected around 1700.
Several tourists kissed and prayed to the religious statues.

Old Jewish was costly to enter so we found a hole in the door large enough to snap a photo.
St. Vitus close up.
The owner of our apartment told us to visit the castle area in the evening as it would be empty.
