Watch This Space!





I have to take a couple of weeks off from blogging so I will leave you with one of the most incredible doors in Prague...perhaps not THE most incredible, but it is very nice and also very famous so I wouldn't be surprised if you have already seen it either in person or in pictures. Yes, you got it, the lion heads on The Door Hunter title bar come from this door.

This wonderful and very big door has plenty of things to look at (faces, for example, you don't see some of them right away but they are there...just look). This door is located right next to the famous Clock Tower and leads into (or used to, because I don't think it's used anymore - there is a new door) into the Prague Court House. Behind this door is a beautiful and finely detailed mozaic that is a must-see when in Prague as is the view from the top of the clock tower. Of course, if you are face to face with this door, you should stand in front of the clock tower when it strikes the hour...you'll know it's almost the hour even without looking at the clock because there will be lots of people hanging around the bottom of the tower and in front of this door.

So, until I get back, take care, enjoy the summer and if you find a nice door, don't hesitate to send it to me and maybe I will feature it on my monthly 'reader's door' which I post at the end of each month!

Yes indeed I have seen this beautiful door in person!!! I agree with you 100% if could easily be the best of Prague doors. Oh boy you have a monthly readers door...I'll keep my eyes peeled for a door worthy of your Door Hunter blog,

Happy Travels,
