A capstone of our trip proved to be the tour of the Prague Castle today. Our last day started early and ended at the Charles Bridge.

The Prague Castle is really more of a complex of much to see. Naturally, royal history is richly shown here, but also political history, displays of Czech art and craftsmanship, gardens and an intriguing cathedral.

Personal highlights included the Old Royal Palace (site the infamous Second Defenestration), South Gardens, Cathedral of Sv Vit, and the changing of the Czech guard. Lunch at the Restaurant Vikarka was a yummy and classic example of Czech cuisine.
