Prague: Random Castle Snaps and the Basilica

While on the castle grounds we visited the Basilica. Honestly, we spent most of our time in there whispering to each other, "What's a basilica? I wish Alistair, font of all trivia, was here to tell us..." It seems to be some sort of meeting space, anyway.

    It's apparently an oblong church (ie it's not cross shaped, like most churches). It's a Roman design, used for really old churches.

  2. SO PRETTY - I can't get enough of old church details. The sheer amount of work and artistry that went into each wall, each little detail. It's mind-boggling. 

  3. Those ceiling paintings, right? Incredible.

  4. Gorgeous! I love that photo of you, you look lovely as always :)


Please play nice.
