We visited the Prague Castle complex, which included St. Vitus Cathedral, several palaces and many museums. We stopped to listen to a small concert that was happening in one of the squares and watched the changing of the guard.
We crossed the famous St. Charles Bridge, full of artists, musicians and statues. We saw some young men "switching" young girls with ribbon-decorated sticks --an old tradition that happens the Monday after Easter and is a sort of fertility rite. We also visited the Old Town and Wenceslas Square and the famous 15th-century Astronomical clock which produces a "Parade of the Apostles" on the chime of the hour.
