very beautiful cathedral
Unfortunately, but fair enough, you cannot take pictures in St. Vitus' cathedral. It's a huge place with extremely nice glass paintings in the windows and everything you could expect from an old place like that.
If I remember correctly, there was no charge for it. I'm not sure. But there were huge amounts of people going there at the same time! It's probably the easiest to get up to the castle area where this cathedral is also located, when you go thru the old town area and up the long stairs near where the Kafka's place was.
TOUCH THE GOLDEN DOG
It is a local custom to stop at the statue of St. John Nepomuk located on the Charles Bridge. We saw all these people lining up in front of the statue to TOUCH THE GOLDEN DOG. A panel located beneath the statue depicts a soldier and his dog and for some strange reason if you rub it and make a wish, your wish will come true. OK I'm game. I rubbed it. My wish for it to stop raining didn't come true. I think it's just a ploy from the city public works department to keep the statues clean as this was the only clean spot on the whole statue. Duh!
