We began our sightseeing today at the Strahov Monastery and Library, after a satisfying lunch at Pivovar Strahov, the onsite brewery.
From there, we walked back down into the main city through the Castle Grounds. En route we went past St. Vitus Cathedral.
We entered the cathedral at the perfect time of day. For all the churches I’ve seen in Europe, this is the first time, I’ve timed it so well to see all the colors reflected.
We walked downhill into old town.
Our plans for the night included Aida at the State Opera.
Opera-watching’s hard work. We rewarded ourselves at the EuroFood in Wenceslas Square, a la Bourdain.
