My Best Shot

Jim Coudon

July 19, 2009

My wife and I live in Bel Air. In April, we took an 11-day trip through Eastern Europe with our first stop in Prague, Czech Republic. This shot of Prague Castle on the banks of the Vltava River turned out to be one of our favorites. Czech leaders have been ruling from this compound for more than a thousand years. Prague Castle, considered to be the largest in the world, is actually a 1,500-foot long series of churches, courtyards and palaces. The huge cathedral seen in the middle of the castle courtyard is the 14th century St. Vitus Cathedral. Visible to the lower right is the 650-year-old historic Charles Bridge, named after the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV.
