Evening in Prague

by arianambrand

Prague was hot, and crowded, and stuffed with souvenir shops. But even with the crushing hoards of tourists, it still managed to be quite beautiful.

I arrived around 8 on Friday night, after a 7-hour train ride. After checking into my hostel, I headed into the old town to see old town square, and then down to the river to see the bridge.

Týn Church in Old Town Square.

Prague Castle, blurrily, from across the river.

It was a fine evening, and it was great to stretch my legs after the train. The river is beautiful, but I do think Budapest wins for river vistas. Although I may be biased.
