Prague is awash with galleries, museums, live music and cultural events. We went to two concerts of classical music in 2 nights, the first in a castle, the second in a church. In the castle it was a string quartet and, to Phil's delight, he witnessed all of Vivaldi's Four Seasons played by a virtuoso violinist, whose speed of fingering and bowing was almost beyond belief. In the second it was an organ concert, with also a soprano and a violinist. The room trembled with the encompassing sounds.
I forgot to take my camera the day we walked around the Old City. Sorry.

We enjoy an end of day beer on a float in the river.Tom has been very helpful with his German and bits of Czech language as we've navigated Prague. He's also alerted me to 2 spelling mistakes in my last blog. It's the Vltava River, not the Vitava. Even though I looked it up when I was writing the blog, I didn't read the letters correctly. And it's the Moldau River, not the Moldeau.
Gargoyles are drain pipes.If you can make out these monsters with their mouths wide open, they're not facing off in aggression toward each other, as I previously wondered. They're disgorging run-off from the roof. Best to steer clear of them from below when it's been raining.
