October Miscellany

We are often asked what is the best month to visit.  For Paros, Greece we say September or June; for Ireland it is June or July; for Prague, we are still learning.  We have heard that July and August are bad because of the crowds at Charles Bridge and other tourist centers.  Therefore we were surprised in October to see crowds on Charles Bridge and Old Town!

Of course the good side of that is the city is alive and active the year around.  We found the beer garden nearly empty in October but on a sunny day the park paths are busy with strolling people.  So below are a few photos and comments to demonstrate October in Prague and environs.
