After an excellent lunch at the Little Quarter Square, we walked up the hill to Prague Castle where a most amazing view of the city awaits you. We walked around the Castle Square and Courtyards and visited St. Vitus Cathedral where an Alphonse Mucha (of Art Noveau fame) magnificent stained glass window sprakles in all its glory.
We exited through the side and crossed the Deer Moat which led us to a park trail that runs across from the Castle grounds to the Metronome (another landmark in the Prague skyline which used to hold a statue of Stalin and has since been replaced). There is a marvelous view of the castle complex as you walk away with a stunning vistas of the cathedral and castle if you venture out this less traveled exit.
The sun was going down and we stopped at various points just to gaze at the city in the golden glow of the setting sun. There were very few tourists, mostly residents walking their dogs or taking a leisurely stroll before heading home. The light, the views, the distance from the tourist mobs that seemed to hound us wherever we went made this moment my favorite time in Prague. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful stay in Prague!
