The Golden City

Last week I spent a few nights in Prague, which I fully recommend to anybody since it is affordable (when compared to Western Europe) and very beautiful (an intact Baroque city). It is the 'city of a hundred spires':


a city of stunning churches:
.

a city which gave the Abbess of its oldest convent (St George's in the castle compound) the privilege of wearing a coronet:


a city in which you occasionally find grafitti in Latin:


a city of great beers - and which openly sells Absinthe, a highly alcoholic drink made from wormwood and banned in many countries:


Over the next few days I will try to do some further Prague posts.

Please do pray for us at the Shrine of the Infant Jesus - that is one of the gems of Prague.
