A "toy soldier" outside Prague's Royal Castle.  This was an absolutely stunning place and the weather was glorious.  :)

To get to see this view I had to walk up a watch tower that had something like 300 stone steps on a spiral staircase with people walking up and down the stairs at the same time - a rather scary prospect.  The view was amazing, but I thought this picture was one of the best.  The red rooves, the cockerel and the lovely river in the background.  I was starting to despair that prague wasn't beautiful and then I saw this view and realised perhaps only the outskirts are graffittied and porn-shop filled.

Everywhere you look in Prague there is a breath-taking piece of architecture.  After spending the whole day snapping (we even took to the river on a pedalo to see the bits we couldn't see otherwise) we walked to the top of a big hill where there was an imitation Eiffel tower and also an amazing mirror labyrinth and room of mirrors.

An hour's train ride took us to Kutna Hora where there is an amazing church decked out in the bones of between 20000 and 40000 people.  Here we realised just how cheap the Czech Republic really is with a hotel being 15 for us both (breakfast, ensuite) and 2 for a litre bottle or quite nice wine.  Being in Kutna Hora was odd: seeing mortality (the church) and poverty was quite thought provoking.
