Gallery: Signs of Prague

I love to photograph (what I consider) unusual details of the cities I visit, including architecture, decorations, statues, signs and symbols.  I often find these my favorite souvenirs of that destination.

 

I've previously presented a similar post on signs we saw in Quebec City.  Today I'd like to share with you some of the more interesting ones we experienced in Prague.  If you'd like to read more about Prague, please refer to my blog here on TravelGumbo.  For legends to these photos, please hold your mouse over an image, or click on the thumbnails at the bottom of the post.

Here's another odd Prague sign (although it may be gone by now, and the merchandise sold). We saw it on a large and perhaps-not-lovely street sculpture that was seeking a new home in 2003. It was also seen in a Gumbo blog a while ago...

 

Prague-34

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

I always find that to see something of the history of a city you have to look UP !

The façade of latter day stores only reaches up one or two floors.

But look above and you'll Gargoyles, Coats of Arms, Eagles and Shields and a thousand other pieces that tell a tale of a bygone time.
