    Praha, a stunning city with 1,100 years of history. Lets create a visual travelogue and share our images of the home of the Velvet Revolution. There is good reason why it is the sixth most-visited European city after London, Paris, Rome, Madrid and Berlin. The Old Town Square with it's astronomical clock, the New Town with the Christmas market in Wenceslas Square, the Gothic Old New Synagogue, Charles Bridge and the castle. And don't forget the beer!

    I won't post the pics, just a link to them on my blog. Be warned there are lots of pictures of beer, pubs and people drinking beer. Somehow a few of buildings and what not creeped in. I hate it when that happens.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I've never seen so many great doors as I saw in Prague:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And the non-door sights are pretty neat as well:

    [​IMG]

    Russian dolls are not Czech (nor Russian), but a fascination with Michael Jackson apparently is:

    And just for kicks, the elf-chicken machine at PRG:

    Everyone's pictures are absolutely beautiful (and obviously taken with a much better camera than I generally use).

    I was thinking how deserted the city looked until we hit the bridge, and from there on saw the tourist crowds :(, I was really hoping for the quiet version. Heading to Prague late this spring and looking forward to the visit
