From the rear of the church. Are there three spires for the trinity?
One of our goals today was to see the Church of St. Michael. We have seen pictures of the church, but had not actually seen the church.This small 18th century wooden church was moved to Prague from a village in the Ukraine. I was fascinated with the roofing shingles. They are small wooden shingles that are about two inches across, about five inches long and perhaps half an inch thick. To me they make a beautiful pattern on the church. The church is in Kinsky Garden which is right beside Petrin Park. In fact it is hard to know when you leave one and enter the other. Both are on the big hill, or should I call it a small mountain that rises on the west side of the Vltava river above the Little Quarter of Prague.
It is not hard to tell that people were much shorter in the 18th century than now. The front door was just a bit over five feet tall and the roof comes down that low all around the church. I had to duck to go under the room to take a few pictures inside the roof line.
We are retired librarians. Nancy worked for the Board of Education and Bill operated a one person engineering library for a communications company. Travel has been one of our passions our entire marriage.
Originally we thought this blog would report only on our trip to Prague. However, we have decided to add entries and photos previous trips. We hope you enjoy them.
