I love Prague, and one of my favorite things to do there is listen to music. There are plenty of paid concerts. However, having the opportunity to enjoy classically trained musicians playing in the street was an amazing treat. On this 202nd week of Travel Photo Thursday I want to introduce you to a few of these performers.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog.

The weekend is definitely the best time to catch performances. There seems to be performers set up not only in the middle of the old town square, but in every nook and cranny in the old town. Speaking of the middle of the square, that is exactly where I found these guys. I’m quite sure this was my first street performing violinist.
A little moody, maybe? 🙂

Then in this little nook were two classical violinists making sweet music. These two were my favorites of the day.

What would street music be without a little jazz? (Maybe not classically trained, but good!)
