One thing is for sure….Prague is Bustling with Buskers (and Artists), and especially Buskers With Bubbles
All there to entertain the visitors, and hopefully to make a bit of money. Like the musicians, they are a lot of fun, and certainly seem to help define what Prague is today as a prime tourist destination. We find them on the main squares, and on streets, especially the street leading off the famous Charles Bridge and up to the Castle complex on the hill. Many artists set up their easels on Charles Bridge too, along with stalls selling trinkets and jewelry.
In the summer of this year, the main busking activity seemed to be Blowing Bubbles! The buskers had large wands that they swished through their soapy water and brandished in the air, creating a stream of bubbles—some huge. Kids loved them and chased after bubbles happily, and many people (including us) tried to capture on camera the elusive shapes, rainbow-colored in the sunlight.
