Please excuse the photo quality, they were shot on my phone’s camera.
I’m back from my spring break, it was great. I feel refreshed and excited to get back to blogging. It’s really amazing how great you can feel by taking a week off. Perhaps my favorite part was the technology disconnect. I cut down my internet time to about 20% of my normal use, and it was fantastic. Try it, you’d be amazed at how the your life and world still function without the technology overload:) I thought I’d keep it simple and get back into things with some postcards from Prague. Enjoy!
Even if you’ve lived in Prague a long time, or visited countless time, there are so many hidden corners, passages and stories to discover. On this walk we headed to Prague Castle. Once inside we made our way to the Golden Lane. This section or lane of the castle is home to tiny, modest, building that were inhabited by the castle servants. The tiny buildings were inhabited until just after World War 2. In their long history they were inhabited by some famous or well known Czechs. Perhaps the most, internationally, know being Franz Kafka at number 22.
On this trip we noticed that many of the houses had been renovated appropriately to the different periods in which they had been occupied. We were pleasantly surprised that they had been opened to the public.
During the high tourist season in Prague, a small area like this is impossible to photograph clearly because of all the tourist. This photo below is a scan of one I took a while ago during the low season. Not the best shot but it gives you an idea. If you’d like to see more photos of Prague’s Golden Lane visit the Castle’s website, Golden Lane with Daliborka Tower.
The rest of these photos were taken around and below the castle grounds.
Isn’t this little guy adorable?
Pivo (beer) and lunch time!
