Prague vol. 3

This is my biggest post so far. And the last one about Prague:

Trams are everywhere:

Marionette theatre:

I must confess: I don't have a clue about who's this statue representing. But it's odd - it's located three floors above ground...

Yet another beautiful view of the bridges:

More marionettes: lots of witches and... Harry?

Falling in love...

Interesting video store. Very discrete.

Horse wagon tours. Notice the "I can ride this with my lges crossed" posture:

The biggest Jewish Synagogue in Prague... and the one that's closed for visits. Let me give a short advice, by the way:
DON'T spend your money in the jewish quarter! You'll be robbed! The only open synagogue is very expensive (in comparison with all other monuments) and it's just... an old room with old walls and old chairs. Nothing else! And you can't take pictures (of what?!)...

This is one that you're "allowed" to visit:

The Old Town Square (Staromestske Namesti):

The famous Astronomical Clock:

A closer look...

Comic publicity...

The exuberant Municipal House:

The Opera:

This is Petrin Tower, an imitation of the Eiffel tower:

Look at the kids' faces: they are delighted!

Be aware of the iron nude army!

This is Accenture's office!

And last but not least, check this beer's alcohol level:

Eu também estive em Praga e amei a cidade. As tuas fotos estão óptimas... mas naquela cidade não é dificil tirar boas fotos. Eu tenho 26 rolos de boas fotos.

I recently visited the City of Prague, also known as “the golden city of spires” on Vltava River. I found Prague very attractive, and the thousand-year history was visible particularly in the architecture.
We booked a room in one of the Prague hotels right in the center of the Old Town - wanting to be close to everything.The touristy Old Town, the Prague Castle, the Little Quarter and the Jewish Town made a deep impression on me with beautiful medieval, Gothic- and baroque-style churches and renaissance residential buildings, museums, cafes and theaters. One could wander through the meandering streets of Prague for days in a row and continuously discover hidden alleyways and unique views.

Hello Paulo
The pictures are lovely!
I’ve been to Prague many times and I never get sick of it. I stayed last September to study. I love Czech people they are very nice and friendly and also a literate society, as you can see here in this government document. Besides the small streets, I also enjoy in this city the night life, the Prague music clubs are all so cozy and have such a nice environment and decoration and make you want to stay long. So leave you here a list of nice bars for next time: ) I was in Portugal for 2 months last summer and I absolutely loved it much more they Prague. The sun the beach! Beautiful!
