This was the view from the St Nicholas tower around dusk. Unlike a lot of cities in Europe, Prague was fairly unimportant in WWII and was spared a lot of the distruction. The buildings seemed a lot taller to me than in Vienna, where nothining (in the city center) can be taller than the spire of Stephansdom.
St. Vitus Cathedral on the hill with the castle. It is very interesting to look at far away, but up close- it is massive and to me, seems to have many different personalities. On the outside alone there were beautiful mosaics, ugly, almost scary gargoils and heavilly carved historic doors. Really interesting.
The Pinkas Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter is now a memorial to over 77,000 Jews from Prague and nearby villages who were killed in the Holocaust. The family name is in red- individual names and dates come after. Village names are in gold. We also saw the old Jewish Cemetery in Prague which was fascinating.
