Mysterious Prague

I'm back from a trip to Prague and Paris. There were so many gargoyles and other mysterious settings that I'll be spending the next couple of months posting photos from those cities.

To kick things off, here are a few photos of Prague that give a sense of how there are beautiful mysterious details just about everywhere you look.

View of gorgeous architecture out the window of our Prague hotel.

Closeup of the building across from the hotel.

Views of the city. 

An architectural detail outside the H&M in Wenceslaus Square.

Getting lost one afternoon, we stumbled upon this church in a beautiful square.

A gargoyle on the church.

The top of New Town Hall. 

Next week, I'll begin a more in-depth look at specific locations in Prague, including Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral, the Klementinum (national library), Vysehrad, and the stunning Art Nouveau architecture that spans the city.
