What a day! It was so NOT one of our "Best Travel Days Ever", but at least we can laugh at ourselves and just keep going.
This is how our day unfolded......
We got off to a slow start this morning, I was a little pokey and didn't feel like moving too fast. We finally left the apartment at about 10:30, and we had our day all planned.
From our first day here in Prague, we had noticed a big beautiful church across the river, and we both wanted to see it. It looked just amazing; it was so tall, and the twin spires were so ornate. Yup--that was our goal today---to find that big, beautiful church.
The interior was stunning--over the top ornate, but at the same time very tasteful. We both loved the marble work--a combination of white, pink and soft green. Lots of gold leaf and gilding, and of course several fresco.
At the top of the stairs there was a large square with lots of people milling about. We could still see those beautiful spires--behind a gated and guarded entrance courtyard.
Yup--we were standing in front of the beautiful St. Vitas Cathedral, located on the grounds of The Prague Castle. How did we manage to get so confused? Well---on our first visit to the castle and St Vitas we'd taken a different route; a tram that let us off near a different entrance because we wanted to avoid the big "hill climb". We just shook our heads, and walked back through the covered archway and back into the pretty square at the top of the steps.
We noticed this odd little machine on the grass, slowly criss-crossing the grass. When it hit the edge, it turned and went in a different direction. At first we thought it might be a remote controlled toy, but when we got close we read the writing on the top--it was a lawn mower! No wonder the grass looks so perfect! Wonder if we could buy one of these in Spudville?
