Overview

Quote:
Prague is a European Capital in the truest sense of the term. The centuries of history that have unfolded here have a way of seeping into your imagination as you wander the cobbled streets and alleyways. The artists on Charles' Bridge are well aware of this and the portraits of the city they offer capture Prqague's irrepresible atmosphere. This city of literature and thought seems to have long forgotten the fifty years of Communism or the brutal days of Nazism which was their terrible prelude. Prague has a real way of bringing the past to life.Quick Tips: Prague is full of cheap hotels and restaraunts.

Bohemia Bagel

Restaurant

Quote:
Delicious homemade sandwiches that contain no artificial additives, preservatives or unnatural ingredients. A welcome change from the Czech norm of meat and cholesterol, not necessarily in that order.

Bohemia Bagel also offers the opportunity to use the internet.

Quote:
Terezin was originally a fort but the Nazis altered it to make it a camp for political prisoners. It was not a death camplike Auswitz but many did perish here.

The camp was also used as a propoganda tool and was disguised as a sort of 'model camp' and visited by 'League of Nations' inspectors before war broke out. Guided tours explain the camp and there is also a Jewish museum in the town.

Quote:
This beautiful bridge is made all the more memorable by the many portrait artists that work on it. Sitting along the bridge they will draw you in about ten minutes for $10. There are also many pictures of the city available so why not have a browse?

Old Jewish Quarter

Story/Tip

The Old Jewish Quarter Photo, Prague, Czech Republic
Quote:
This is a small area found between the old town square and the Vltava. The area was founded in the 10th century and ever since, has experienced wave after wave of oppression and tyranny. Starting with the crusades this area has been the site of massacres throughout the ages. Before world war II, the ghetto had a population of 56,000. Not many of these people survived the Nazi period however. Today the area is so full of character that it should not be missed.
