Dvorak, the Moldau and the magnificent Vltava River

Antonin Dvorak's The Moldau is an orchestral piece that describes the journey of the Vltava River, which also happens to flow right through the heart of Prague. Prague proved to be one of the most beautiful cities I visited recently; forget the crowds at the castle and Karluv Most, head south for a spectacular hill top view.

Those panoramic shots are great! The river looks so beautiful and it's only the discerning traveller who will take note of something naturally overlooked by the city's residents in their daily commutes.

Wasn't it Smetana who composed The Moldau? Anyhow, nice pix!

Ohh, you may be right jelloman
There's a statue of Dvorak along the river = I will blame my confusion on that!
Having said that, there is also a Smetana Museum on the bridge...
Doh!
