Our studio apartment is one block from the end of a tram line. We wondered around a bit looking for a place to buy tickets and finally stumbled upon the ticket vending machine. It had enough English assistance that we were able to get our 30 minute tram tickets.
About halfway to our destination, a van accidentally connected with the side of our tram, so we got off and walked through the neighborhood. By the time the accident was cleared and the trams were running again, there was only 3 minutes left on our tickets, so we just walked the rest of the way down to Wenceslas Square.
In our wonderings, we found the Franciscan Garden, which is a lovely, peaceful park surrounded by buildings. You have to know where to look to find your way in. The tall building in the background of this picture is the Our Lady of the Snow Church which became our next destination.
What appeared to be the gate to the church was locked, but we peeked in to see what we could see and continued to roam the neighborhood. Behind this sculpture is a door and we went in because the sign hanging next to it promised books. Little did we know that this was the actual entrance to the church.
The church is very beautiful and impressive from the outside. The inside, however, went beyond our expectations.
This picture doesn’t do it justice. It was awe inspiring and definitely the highlight of the day.
