čechův most

After a nice breakfast, we’re off to see Prague. We get out the bus on čechův most (bridge). We take a walk through Pařížská (Paris Street) in Josefov, the Jewish quarter. Nowadays only 1.600 Jewish people live in Prague. There are many buildings from the early 1900. To see the Jewish cemetery you will have to pay some money.

 

We stopped at the house of Frans Kafka. This Jewish writer has written some “heavy” books. We reach the old square. Just in time to see the famous astronomic clock. The maker of this clock was made blind on purpose so he could never make a clock more beautiful as the one in Prague. Time for coffee. In the cubist grand cafe Orient we had a break. The chandelier looked a bit Russian, the stars …

 

One of my favourite buildings is Obecni dum, it is beautiful decoreted.

Some people are bored and leave the group. We make a stop at  the university, just before we reach Wenceslas Square. It doesn’t feel like a square, it is more a boulevard. In a shopping-centre we see a funny statue of  Wenceslas, with his horse hanging upside down. Next to this statue there is a beautiful old (100 years) movietheatre. Unfortunately I do not have the time to see a movie. After a walk through the park, we’re free! No guide.

 

We visit the Mucha museum. Mucha is a famous artist from the Czech Republic. He lived in Austria, France and USA. The Mucha museum shows a movie about the life of Mucha and of course there is art from the great artist. The museum has a shop, but watch out if you buy something. You’ll find the same stuff, cheaper in the city.

 

Prague by night looks lovely. The ‘Dancing house’ is situated close to the river. It is my favourite modern building in the capital city. This building is made by Frank Gehry and is also known as ‘Fred and Ginger house’.
