First full day in Prague

What a lovely, lovely city! 

Pretty much the only gray day on the trip. A week out, the forecast was for cold and rain, so much so that we brought tons of gear we didn't really need. Thanks for the jacket, Carl!

Tyn Church, Old Town Square. Because of the decades of communist rule, Czechia is a very non-religious country. Many churches there are used for concerts and other secular activities.

Jan Hus, who got a lot of people killed because he questioned the Pope.

Gehry's "Dancing House."

The church at Vysehrad Castle.

Top of the Dancing House.

At the top of Petrin Hill.

Being on the top of this hill, the tip of this tower is the same altitude as Eiffel. 

Powder Tower.

National Museum at the top of Wenceslas Square.

No horses were harmed.
