Not far from the Dancing House one may see a water tower that is built of the same stone as other old towers of Prague. This tower is Shitkovska water tower (Šítkovská vodárenská věž) built during 1588-1591. This tower serves the fountains of the Nove Mesto (New Town). Its height is 47m and every side is 10m wide. Shitkovska water tower is the most falling tower of Prague. It deviates from the vertical axis by 115cm.
This post is to show some photos of the route to Prague Castle. This route goes by the long old stone stairs with a high brick wall. This looks magical! Especially at night and when there are no people. Starting to believe in magic, fairytales and mystic things.
Here is how it looks when you go up.

And this is the image from the half-way to the top. This one was made using my Helios 44M lens. I believe the sharpness of this lens is the best although it is the old lens.
Church of Our Lady before Týn (Kostel Matky Boží před Týnem) – is the main church of the Old Town of Prague on the Old Town Square. The construction of this church in its present look was started in 14th century and fully completed in the beginning of the 16th century. The church is built in Gothic style. The height of the towers is 80 meters.

One of the preserved buildings of Josefov is the Old New Synagogue (Staronová synagoga). This synagogue is the oldest active synagogue in Europe. It was built in year 1270 in Gothic style. The Old-New Synagogue is the main house of prayer of Prague’s Jews today.
This synagogue was called the New Synagogue or the Great Synagogue. And after the newer synagogue was built the older synagogue became the Old-New Synagogue.
There is a legend that the Golem’s body lies in the attic of this Synagogue.
