I think the trick in Prague is to avoid weekends and get up early for an (almost) tourist free spectacle. Proof below with the walk along and over Charles Bridge at 8.45am
Not only lovely buildings but some pretty grumpy statues – but I guess anyone would be having to hold up buildings and Jo finally gets her Chimney Cake filled with whipped cream and apples. Have you ever seen such a joyful face?!?! By the way, the one without a face is the Frank Kafka statue.
Then a visit to St Vitus Cathedral (the patron saint of dancers, entertainers, epilepsy and oversleeping! Both the exterior and interiors are spectacular.
