Greetings from Prague…wish you were here!
Photo taken in the summer of 1993 of the Charles Bridge in Prague.
Per Wikipedia: “The Charles Bridge is a famous historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. As the only means of crossing the river Vltava (Moldau) until 1841, the Charles Bridge was the most important connection between Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town and adjacent areas”.
Visiting Prague was a highlight of my six-week backpacking tour of Europe during the summer of 1993. I had just completed a semester abroad in Paris and jumped the Eurail heading east.
I will never forget the lovely pastel colored buildings in central Prague as well as the mysterious, inspiring Charles Bridge where musicians gathered to play guitar at night as the sun set against the backdrop of Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in all of Europe. It seemed untouched by tourism at the time.
