Travel theme: Time

Time is this week’s Travel theme. I have for you just a few of Prague’s sun dials. The first one is from the Little Town in Prague. One from the main square…

Little Town Square, Malostranské náměstí

… and this one is really hidden and to find it you have to ask me for getting you there. In case you visit Prague and you find it on your own, make a shot and send it to me :-).

For this one you would have to be as lucky as we were with my husband to get to the monastery garden at Strahov, read more here.

This clock can’t be freely visited as well, as it is in the yard of the Hospital Na Františku in the Old Town. It is located in a less visited part of Prague, but when you go to St. Agnes Convent for Exhibition of Gothic art, take a look at this one, but do not disturb the people in hospital. The second is not sun dial, but it is so beautiful and from the same place that I post it here :-).

To see this one you have to climb Astronomical Tower at Klementinum, as I did for my post here.

My bonus shot is from London, from the place called Seven Dials and when you are there, find all seven dials on the square. You will find six of them on the top of the column (the small metal rounds on the spire), but where is the seventh one?

    Katerina, what a beautiful blog – glad I found you. Prague is at the top of our ‘bucket list’ and we hope that one day soon we will be able to visit. In the meantime your articles and pictures will have to do. Thank you. Carina

    I have to get out more. Never heard of so many sun dials in one place – and on the buildings. So I wonder, London’s Seven Dials – is the seventh the column itself ? Thank you for this tour.
