A Sunny Day in Prague After the Flood

It was the 5th of June in year 2013. It had been raining heavily in Eastern Europe for more than a week before this day. We had been watching the news on television of the flood happening in Prague a few days before this day. The rain had finally subsided before this day when we arrived at Prague. The 5th of June in year 2013 in Prague was a sunny day.

It was the first and only sunny day on the whole tour and we made full use out of it to roam around Prague. The first stop was non other than the famed Prague Castle.




Although it was already the third time for me to visit the St. Vitus Cathedral, I still couldn't resist to take more pictures of the interior. It is one of the most beautiful churches I have visited in Europe.



The tour also included a visit to the Old Royal Palace. As it was already my third visit, I did not take too many photos on the inside.


The Golden Lane is a very prominent part of Prague Castle, therefore it couldn't be missed for our tour.



Even though the rain had subsided, the water level of the Vltava River was still very high. The water flow was so rapid that Charles Bridge had to be closed to the public.



Since nobody was allowed to get on to Charles Bridge, all the tourists got on to the adjacent bridge to admire it.


As we were approaching the Old Town Square, we could still see the water barrier set up to stop the flood water from entering the Square.


It was business as usual at the Old Town Square. There wasn't any sign of flooding that hit Prague two days ago.



The Astronomical Clock was still running and putting a head-up show at every right hour.


The Jan Hus Memorial was still standing steadily after the flood.


Everything was looking good despite the flood. The Church of Our Lady before Týn was still as good looking as before.
