Czechoslovak Hussite Church of Our Lady – Old Town, Prague

Czechoslovak Hussite Church - Outside-1

One of the first things we wanted to see in Prague in May of 2018, besides the Charles Bridge, was Old Town Square.  I really wanted to see the Astrooligal clock, but it was not working due to repairs and renovations. Sadly this seemed to happen in every country we visited. Even though we didn’t get to see the clock working, I was quite impressed by the Czechoslovak Hussite Church.  Also known as The Church of Our Lady before Tyn, it is most likely the second signature landmark in Old Town Square.

Prague, Czech Republic – My Top 7 Free Things on Our to-do List

Prague - City1In May of 2018, we were spending a couple of weeks in Europe for our 20th anniversary.  While we were looking forward to spending a week in Germany, and part of a week in Vienna, one of the places I was really looking forward to spending a few days in was Prague. This city looks so amazing and interesting. I couldn’t wait to explore it. As with the other cities, we have a few things planned but also wanted to mix in a few free things while in the area.

Pilsner Urquell Brewery – Our Unique Brewery Tour

Pilsner Urquell - BuildingWe had an amazing time in the Czech Republic while in Europe in May of 2018.  For two weeks we ran around Austria, Germany as well as the Czech Republic. However, we really enjoyed our time in Prague (Praha) and I loved seeing the Charles Bridge and the Czechoslovak Hussite Church of Our Lady in Old Town. Sadly we were only there a couple of days and headed south to Germany. However, on our way south we made a detour and visited the city of Pilsner (Pilsen) to tour the Pilsner Urquell Brewery.

We have been on quite a few brewery tours, but this one was quite unique. Above is a Youtube video I made about our tour. Hope you enjoy some pictures that are not here in the post.

Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic – Our Wonderful Experience

Charles Bridge 1As you may have noticed in several other posts, in May of 2018 we spent two weeks in Europe. We had a great time running around Germany and Austria. We also spent a couple of days in Prague, Czech Republic. There were a few things I wanted to see while in the area. However, the Charles Bridge was on the top of my list. It looked amazing and couldn’t wait to check it out. Sadly the weather was unpredictable. It was hot and sunny one minute, then overcast and cloudy the next. We made the most of it though and took as many pictures as I could when I could. Continue reading “Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic – Our Wonderful Experience”
