Prague castle & Gothic cathedral

                 Can you imagine a castle with an area as big as seven (7) football fields?  Prague Castle is said to be the biggest

           castle in the world, with a history dating back to the mid-ninth (9th) century.  I thought The Old Town Square

           was already old, but Prague Castle beats it by a century :)..

Gate of Giants.

(what would you do if these statues come to life? haha)

.

.

Matthias Gate  (the inscription is a listing of the Emperor’s titles).

.

.

 

Prague Castle  (Third Courtyard).

It was eerie…  ;))

.

.

Gothic Cathedral of St. Vitus  (it took nearly six centuries to build this!)

The large Rose Window above the entrance shows biblical scenes.

My brother was literally lying down on the floor when he took this pic. 🙂

The corner of the West & the South side of the Cathedral.

Showing some sisterly love  😉

It doesn’t show in this pic, but we were actually freezing from the cold.

I don’t remember why I even wore shorts. :S  What was I thinking?!

Oh yeah, it was supposed to be summer that time!!!

 sshhh….  😉

.

I couldn’t find any history on this tree  😦

This is the coolest manhole ever.  🙂

Okay, so where do we go now?  🙂
