Our last day in Prague began with a delicious breakfast at a french bakery right around the corner from our hostel.  We then trekked to the Prague Castle and visited the St. George Basilica, the Golden Lane (a row of shops) and the Picture Gallery (late renaissance art gallery).

  Afterward, half of the castle district was closed off because, unbeknownst to us, the Pope was coming for a visit that evening. 

 So we left, got a little lost trying to get around all the newly set-up Pope fences, and made our way back to the old town to see the Staronova synagogue (built in the 13th century!). 

 Then we saw a wonderfully imaginative and hilarious Black Light Theatre show, a theatrical style invented by the Czechs that involves pantomine and black light modern dance.

A late night dinner and some more pix of the castle at night and then to bed.

Off to Heidelberg, Germany in the morning...
