On my last afternoon in Prague, I walked up Petrin Hill to look out over the red roofs and gold-topped spires of the city aglow in the light of waning sun. As I made my way to the top, I found the views I was searching for and so much more:
It’s amazing how easily you can find calm spaces in crowded summertime Prague. Aside from the Charles Bridge area, it was much quieter on the other side of River Vltava. Just a little way up Petrin Hill I found even more serenity.
Pears and view.
The path less traveled.
Down below, the crowded Charles Bridge.
Broken ornaments decorated the outside of the fantastical Reon Argondian Gallery.
Through some iron gates I came across this garden where a woman was painting the scene.
This garden was pure joy.
As if the first garden wasn’t amazing enough, around the corner I found another garden full of vibrant roses.
More fantastic views of Prague.
A nice spot for music making.
