This is the one picture not taken in the Little Quarter. It is near the Charles Bridge.
Rio used to advertise that they were the only city in the world that had sidewalks constructed, in patterns, of black and white stones. We learned this was not quite true the first time we visited Salvador, Bahia way back in 1970. Salvador is another Brazilian city that lies right on the coast some 750 miles north of Rio. We took a number of photos of the black and white stone sidewalks in Salvador at that time and Nancy used them in a photography class she took at Towson University.

I expect there are a fair number of cities around the world that have this type of sidewalk and Prague is one of them. We like them, and thought that perhaps you would also. So here are some photos of Prague's black and white stone sidewalks. All these are sidewalks, except one, in the Little Quarter of Prague which is a design in the area of the stairs to a church that is right across the Charles Bridge.
