Prague – a view from the Imperial Gardens

Prague, – many say the most beautiful city in Europe. She lies in the Vlatava river basin.

Here is a view from the Imperial Gardens next to the Prague Castle, on the same hill where you find the St Vitus cathedral.

See the river snaking past in the valley.

Kutna Hora

Just over an hour to the east of Prague is  Kutna Hora.

A Priest there felt like doing something different and since he was in Bohemia noir was just the thing.

The result of his efforts 😉

It is evident that he was a tidy person. And after all it is disrespectful to just abandon bones, one should make an effort. Odd really he was the first person to do something like this.

You can’t even imagine the rattling when this lot has to rise 😀

Next door is the Cathedral, a complete bore in comparison.

It is dedicated to Sint Barbara, patron saint of miners. Quite a beautiful gothic cathedral really.

Cold there even in autumn!
