Prague had long been on our travel list but what we did not anticipate was reaching the city on a road trip. We had talks about taking a flight one day to Prague and spend a couple of days exploring the city. But on our summer road trip last year we decided to include Prague to our itinerary. We were searching for some place warm and sunny despite the fact that it was summer. The heavy pour made us change our route until we decided to drive to Prague. We thought the weather would be nicer but we didn’t seem to get any luck there too.
We hit the famous Charles Bridge on a rainy day but it was worth the walk despite the rain. Not a good day to take pictures though, especially when you have to hold an umbrella.
The statues seemed to appear black in all our pictures. We didn’t bother to read the text on every statue we saw because of the rain and wind.
This reminded us of Juliet’s House in Verona. This love locks or padlocks at Charles Bridge in Prague didn’t look quite tempting. It didn’t look as though it was intended as love locks.
One of the 30 sculptures and statues on Charles Bridge is the Holy Crucifix.
