last morning in Prague

Walked the same route that we walked on the first night, up Smetanovo nábřeží along the riverside to the Charles Bridge, then back through the Kampa. We could see all down the river to Vyšehrad and the twin spires of St Peter and Paul church. There was hardly anyone on the Charles Bridge, so we were able to linger and look at the view. Saw the shiny bits on the bas-relief at the foot of the Johannes Nepomuk statue, and someone rubbing it for luck. Looked up towards the castle and the Hanavský pavilon.

Sad to leave Prague, it is so beautiful, atmospheric, and full of historical, magical and spiritual significance. I will return someday.
