Rooftop View

View of the main square in Old Town from the
rooftop of the Hotel Prince : Prague, CZ

On Sunday, we decided to have lunch at the rooftop restaurant on top of the Hotel Prince in Old Town. Note to anyone planning to visit Prague: This is a great place to go for drinks or ice cream with friends and to get off your feet for a bit and enjoy an alternate view of Old Town and the surrounding area, but the menu isn't worth the paper it's printed on, so skip it for a meal.

Tourists in the Clock Tower : Prague, CZ

One of the places to enjoy a good view of Prague is from the Clock Tower in Old Town. At various times throughout the day, a trumpeter dressed in Medieval costume comes to the top of the tower and blows his horn.

St Nicholas Church Tower : Prague, CZ

Over the rooftops, you can see the domes of St Nicholas Church. This style of dome is common throughout the Czech Republic and Austria and is usually featured on a Baroque church.

View of the house Kafka lived in for a while. 
The feature to see on this building is the sgraffito. 
Also, cool pattern on the sidewalk! : Prague, CZ
