Mr Monkey visits Prague Castle, 11th June

"We'll be at the castle soon"

Mr Monkey looking at the Real Tennis Pavilion Mr Monkey looking at the Powder Tower of Prague Castle

Mr Monkey scurried through the gardens. He stopped to admire decoration of the Real Tennis Pavilion. Built in 1569, it's the oldest stone building of its type. A little further on Mr Monkey found the only good view he got all day of the Powder Tower, which was an artillery bastion, then a workshop for a gunsmith and bell founder, and then an alchemist's laboratory.
