The Early Morning Stroll Through Romantic Prague
"Prague is beautiful in the daybreak when you can hear the river Vlatava lapping below teh Charles Bridge. The deserted streets and parks are just preparing to wake up. The astronomical clock gracing the tower of the Old Town Hall beats the time at regular intervals, but the statuettes of its saints only bow down to the ever-present pidgeons, The city strats to wake up."
