Prague, day 5 - Up the tower, and heading home

Despite day five being our going-home day, we had managed to get afternoon flights so had a full morning to kill. We did this by climbing up to the top of the astronomical clock tower to get some lovely paramatic views of Prague.

This here is the Týn Church, which is my favourite building in Prague. I just love the scale of it, and how it completely dwarfs the five and six storey buildings around it. Also, lots of pointy bits, like fractal spires.

To get to the airport we took the Metro, seeing as the station was right under our hotel. This is the rather smashing wall decoration at Staroměstská station. I love how every Metro station is uniquely and interestingly decorated.

And so we said goodbye to Prague, for now. I'm sure we'll be back soon.
