CADENCE & CONTINUO
Prague and Ceske Budejovice 2002
In August 2002, we went to the Czech Republic and stayed in Prague. We sang at the basilica in Prague Castle. St Vitus's Cathedral is nearby.
Here is the Charles Bridge and the Jan Hus monument. We busked outside the Old Town Hall (see the astronomical clock), as did others.
We visited Lidice, which was very moving. Here is the children's monument in memory of the town razed to the ground during World War II.
We visited Karlstejn Castle and Tabor.
For the second half of the week, we moved on to stay in Ceske Budejovice. That was very memorable because of the floods! Here is the original hotel we were going to stay at, but as you can see the waters had reached that hotel and came up even higher the day after.
The floods came up to the hotel we did stay at and the square and we had to stay in the hotel. Our concert in the church had to be cancelled.
