More Stone Faces Staring Back in Prague


I've heard Prague called the city of a thousand spires. I think it could just as easily be called the city of a thousand stone faces. It seemed like every time I looked up, there were faces made of stone looking down at me. The buildings in Prague really are amazing. I wish that I knew the stories behind them.

    Oh James, I think I miss beautiful details like these ones for the simple reason I was feeling much cold, the weather was not good there,I was walking on the streets almost hiding myself, inside the coat! :)
