Photo of the Week 8 – Ceremonial change of the guards

PotW 008 - Prague

We were lucky to catch the ceremonial change of the guards at the Prague Castle. The ceremony is pretty interesting to watch since the whole military orchestra is involved. This picture was taken while the guards with their banners were going back from the castle gates to the barracks.  The change happens every hour, but the ‘long’ ceremony is at noon. If you find yourself in the castle district before noon be sure to witness this Czech tradition.
