Prague was my last stop in Europe before heading for Tanzania to meet Tony. I should have budgeted more time there since it was both interesting and affordable. Hopefully I can do a trip to eastern Europe someday and go back to see the rest of the Czech Republic. 

Prague hosts the largest castle in the world. Built over a thousand years with each new monarch adding their own random addition it's quite an interesting mix.  
The tower on the right is a bit larger. Apparently there was a hundred year gap between construction and they lost the original plans so they just told everyone they represent Adam and Eve so Adam's bigger...
We showed up just in time to watch this astronomical clock run through a cycle. It's oldest astronomical clock that is still working and the most complicated clock tower I've seen. 

This had to be the most laid back changing of the guard ceremony I have ever seen. Someone even tried to just walk through the middle of it. 
I think next time I'll go in the summer and hope for clear views of the city...
