Seeing two Prague's most iconic sights in depth, looking for connections, stretching meanings between one and the other. The most stunning place of prayer in Prague. Czech history concentrated in one building, penetrated by colorful sunlight. The emerald greens, fire like reds, plethora of blues. Stained glass windows narrating human emotions s and religious history. Place of burial of several patron saints, kings and archbishops. A then a downhill walk to another fulfilled dream of the Emperor Charles IV. Another allegory of power and grace. The gestures of the statues, the mystery of the Bridge tower. Exploring the statues of people who are buried in the Cathedral. Imagining who else walked the bridge before you...
The best combination of divine beauty and history.
