Prague: Lobkowicz Palace

While wandering in gardens (trying to find our way out) – we stumbled across the Lobkowicz Palace… Not being able to enter from where we were, we marvelled at this gorgeous building through the fences!!! 🙂 **

      Hahaha…. We were wondering as well – we tried to find out while we were there, but found nothing!! (made difficult by the fact that NOTHING is in english!!) – maybe I should try an internet search now… I’ll let you know!! But it’s funny!! That was one of the coldest days for us – if I remember correctly that day plummeted to -6°C!!! 🙂 **

    Oh, I see you found my summer home! It’s a little small but it does in a pinch when I need to get away LMAO!! Wowee, that place is huge. Imagine trying to clean it?!?! I think I’ll stick with my small but comfy house :).

    Quite an amazing building. It’s no wonder the very rich had so many servants. I imagine it would take a crew just to keep the windows clean. Your photo is awesome, I love what looks like late afternoon light.

      I don’t know what it was in the olden days with people and these enormous castles!!! Oh well – if you have money…. This was actually taken around 10 in the morning!!!

    Hi Xandre! Great shot and beautiful palace! I love the round rooms front/middle and it looks as though it would have made a really nice home for some very rich royal or aristocrat! Some castles and palaces look just too large and rather foreboding to actually be a home but I could see myself ‘lording it up’ here! I am sure Penny wouldn’t mind the dusting!

    It’s Germany embassy, so it is not opened for public, only at “open-door” dates. In summer 1989 German people from Eastern Germany were climbing the fence and they lived in tents at this garden (the embassy was Western Germany). There is quite nice collection of photos at corridor at the palace.
    Tha car with legs is Trabant, classic Eastern Germany car, made of plastic material (originally withou legs :-)) and you had to wait 20 (!) years to get one. When Eastern Germans left for Western Embassy, Prague was full of deserted Trabi cars. So that’s why it’s there.
