Prague Views

Vltava River, Dawn

A collection of images of the people and sites of Prague, Czech Republic. Prague is built around the River Vltava. On the east side of the river is the old town, with town squares and narrow streets typical of medieval towns in Europe. On the west side, lies the castle precinct, with its protective and forbidding construction and centrepiece, the St Vitus Cathedral.

The city has many arcades with stores, offices and apartments. The architecture is plain, functional, I guess a sort of modernist post-war aesthetic with influences from the communist era. Then, you will see older styles, harkening back to earlier ages of the strong surrealist influence in the city during the earlier part of the 20th century.

The Charles Bridge cross the Vltava river and is a focal point of the city, with store holders, buskers and thousands of people crossing to and fro on a daily basis.

A video of a glass player who was busking in one of the main squares. Wonderful playing.
