towers and castles, oh my!

This weekend, we hiked up Petrin Hill and climbed to the top of Observation Tower, which looks like a mini-Eiffel Tower! The view was breathtaking. We also checked out the memorial for victims of communism (some info here), which are sculptures that depict a deteriorating man. And finally, we spent a day touring Karlstejn Castle, only a 45 minute train ride away from Prague.

Czech souvenirs are weird. Crazy wigs everywhere!

We couldn't take pictures inside, so here's a 360 view video of the area before we embarked on our castle tour!
