Angels of Hradcany


[Angels of Hradcany - Praha]

Within the Royal Mausoleum, with its Gothic ceiings and the glitter of gold, angels soar in the air. (No, that's not Harry Potter! Here is a different vision of heavenly play unrelated to Quidditch). An awesome sight to see today, imagine seeing this centuries ago. St. John of Nepomuk resides here still, in a baroque-style tomb made from two tons of silver, accompanied by a squadron of silver angels.
