Traveldiaries: 2011-01-18_PragueMorningCastle
2011-01-18_PragueMorningCastle
The second stop out of nine of the Last Prague Trip. I already had great experience of dawn photography with the Castle - I was there both in 2009 and 2010 January-February. But never inside, only outside. After some searching I found out the guards open the gates from 5am during the winter and 6am the summer.

Since I didn't have plans to wait until summer I had to live with the winter options - but this wasn't a problem anyway because the sun comes up later ergo more time for the pictures. I miscalculated the time a bit (to get up to the Castle took only 7 metro stops from me to Malostranská, and the entrance is only 5 minutes walk), so I waited a bit.

It looks like some spaceship engine.

The Castle smelled like onion, it was the strongest here...but wasn't bad at all, onion is good. I guess they were preparing the breakfast.

The Charles Bridge
Like in the past years, I finished the Castle Walk with a coffee bought from the McDonald's close to the bridge (shame, but only this was open so early).
- A coffee, please.
- One?
- Yes.

And I left the place with two coffee. I didn't argue, it wasn't a problem because I had an another long walk in the afternoon...
