Prague (2014)
Chistmas Markets
December 2014

Although our main purpose of visiting Prague was to see the Christmas Markets, we began our tour in the historical Jewish Quarter including synagogues, graveyard and memorial to the victims of the Holocaust

One Christmas Market was located between the Cathedral and the Astronomical Clock
A crowd gathered at the clock to watch it strike at 12 noon



At that time the doors open and the 12 Apostles rotate across

The Christmas Market had a variety of booths and groups performing traditional entertainment

The Charles Bridge
This sculpture was funded hundreds of years ago
by a man with Joe's family name
Strolling the length of the Charles Bridge
8 years ago our friend introduced us to this restaurant. He is no longer with us.
Here's to you, Vladimir. The food, beer and atmosphere are just as we remembered
We left Prague by bus on ou way to the Danube
and stopped for lunch at the Pilsner Brewery
